Jewels...

I have been wearing some new accessories lately so why not do a little post talking about them? It's a bit of everything including items from small, bespoke jewellers to earrings from the giant churn factory that is Forever 21.

So here we go!

The bracelet



I was recently invited to meet a new jewellery designer called Azza Bijou. It was a lovely evening, surrounded by blogger friends - including Teresa and Lisa (LOVE Lisa's blog...do follow if you haven't already as she updates frequently and covers fashion and beauty) and at the end of the night I was gifted one of her bracelets.





L-R: Teresa, Azza, Lisa, Me with my friend Grape/Mint sheesha and Seher. Thanks Maha for the photo! :) 

I put it on in the taxi home and haven't taken it off since. It's been about 3 weeks.



Everything that she produces is inspired by Islamic architecture - think geometric shapes in the Arabesque style.



I love the neatness and simplicity of her designs and the one that I received has that nice contrast between gold and enamel. It's pretty and easy to wear.

From my experience I would have to say it's also great quality. As I said, I have worn it constantly over the last few weeks and it has survived numerous showers/baths with no complaints.

Azza is a new designer and so is not stocked in major retailers....yet! If you want to find out more and perhaps support an upcoming jeweller then check out her Facebook :)

The necklace

A few of you have asked about this already as I have been wearing it pretty much constantly over the last month.



This is totally up my street. It's dainty, a word that I now cringe at due to it's overuse but dammit...it's dainty and that is the only word that fits to describe this necklace!

This is from New Vintage by Kriss, an Estonian based designer I was introduced to by my friend Laura P.  As soon as I saw it I swiped it off her. I loved the combination of the gold disc with the tiny semi-precious stone. It's a partnership that really lifts and illuminates the skin - even though it's small and delicate it seems to catch the light.

It was only a few days later that I realised it also had "Hope" etched into it. Bonus! I can totally live by the meaning of that word.

These are priced at 29 Euro's and are available online...although they are hand made and there are not that many in stock - Link!



PS. Freckle power!

The earrings

I quite enjoy the odd lobe-dragger earring and this pair by Forever 21 are my new favourites. I have worn them a few times and love the statement that they make.

Forever 21 will always be my guilty pleasure when it comes to buying this kind of thing. I can't find this exact pair online - truthfully I am too lazy to scroll through the 100's of earring listings - but they have very nice pairs like this - Link! - and this - Link!

So that's my round up...what's your favourite piece of jewellery right now?

  6. You have such lovely taste. I'm all about the statement necklaces right now. I'm currently obsessed with Anthropologie's offering. Anything with a gaudy smattering of gems and jewels... Sigh.

  27. I'm into clunky pieces at the moment, Haven't worn a dainty piece in so long, I thnk it breathes an air of youth because of its daintiness.
