Trinkets & Gems
I've been meaning to show you all these lovely little bits & pieces for a while, so when my new dressing table arrived yesterday, I thought it would be the perfect place to take pics of everything. You might also spot some of the souvenirs I bought in Wales (thimble cats & a carousel :P)
You've already seen me wearing the bird cross stitch ring by Magasin here, but I also custom ordered these sweet initial pins (only £3 each!), to spell out my nickname. I haven't actually thought of where to use these yet, any ideas?
These next pieces are from the Etsy shop Starchild. When the lovely Saffron, who owns & runs the shop, asked me if I would like to review a piece, I said I'd love a jelly ring, but she sent me some extra pieces too ♥ I got a lovely bow & pearl necklace, & also a skull girl cameo, which I didn't think I'd like at first, but the pastel pink background & lilac bow have won me around & now I love it.
And it goes without saying that I love the little jelly ring - miniature food makes me happy, hahah! Saffron also makes unusual eyeball jewellery, which isn't to my taste, but it is certainly different, & worth a look, if you like the quirky/weird!
Lastly, but certainly not least, Timothy Roe Fine Jewellery sent me one of their Spinning birthstone rings to review. I chose based on design, as opposed to birth month (mine is actually February!), so chose the May design, which was a lovely minty colour. I got it in a large, & it only fits on my pinky, so if you have chubby fingers, this might not be a brand for you.
It is absolutely beautiful though, with detail that doesn't show on the stock image. It even has the month stamped on the back, which was something I wasn't expecting, & made me kinda wish I had picked my own birth month, haha! Luckily May is my Mum's, so this reminds me of her ♥
