Some cute pieces.

We've just had a huge amount of rain fall from the sky! I also woke up to a thunder storm this morning, the sky outside was so dark it was like night time...so weird but very cool!

I would like to share with you all today a couple of items of jewellery that I have purchased (this was before my spending ban I might add). Aside from beauty products I absolutely love jewellery, I really want to start making some small items but I'm not entirely sure how to get into it. I did visit hobby craft at the weekend and the prices of beads etc are crazy, however I know that probably wasn't the best place to go as they can be quite expensive.

Anyhow, onto the items!

The first item is a bracelet I picked up from Dorothy Perkins in the sale for £2. I chose the mint green one and I also got one in peach for my sister, I love these bracelets.


They are the type which requires you to pull either side, which is ok with two people but I find it quite difficult on my own haha! I need more practice.

My second item is something that I purchased off eBay on a whim really. I liked it a lot, however it had to be shipped over from Hong Kong and I was dubious as I had never ordered anything from so far away before; I thought it might have got lost. Oh was I wrong! It arrived within one week, I was so shocked and my opinion was changed, I need not worry so much next time. 

I ordered an owl necklace for 99p along with 50p p&p, I thought that if it did get lost at least I haven't spent too much; here is a link to the seller. It arrived in a little red gift box with a silver bow on which I thought was a lovely little touch.



I really like this necklace, the gems are really quite sparkly and for the price I paid I really cannot find any faults with it; it's perfect!

  7. I love the owl!! :)
    Is it just me that can see both an owl, and also two birds sitting on a branch in the same necklace? haha

    I always buy cheap jewellery pieces from ebay, mainly hong kong and china, for the price you can't go wrong!
