My Jewellery Acquisitions


Thanks to the lovely girls who suggested Halloween costumes for me. I had a last minute inspiration to go as Quorra from Tron (was just going to pretend I didn't know the theme was 'Villains'), but I couldn't find any electroluminescent wire in the space of 5 hours. So I had a last minute switched to Lady Deathstrike from X-men, played by Kelly Hu. My adamantium nails came out really well, but sadly nobody realised who I was! I kept being mistaken for Edward Scissorhands, and even worse- Freddy Kruger!! What a big Halloween fail!

Nevertheless, my husband won 'Best Costume'!! Am so proud of him, although I did catch him voting for himself!!


Now onto my post on my recent jewellery acquisitions. Over the last few months I've bought quite a bit of jewellery and thought I'd do a post on them. Here's a pic of my jewellery collection, I like using stand to store them.


My recent jewellery haul:


I got this necklace from Swarovski. Was actually there to purchase a graduation gift for my sister in law, but couldn't resist this necklace for myself when I saw it.


My husband got me this sweet and dainty flower ring from Carat. I really love it!



I recently got really into statement jewellery, but can't manage to pull them off as they temd to swamp me. This art deco inspired necklace from Monsoon is great as it's big without looking too chunky.



This necklace was from Banana Republic. I quite like their jewellery, and I really like ethnic insipred jewellery so this one was hard to resist.


I got this long necklace from Warehouse. Thought it looked quite dainty.



And lastly, also from Warehouse is this bow necklace. I love anything with bows on it!




I'd also like to share with you a scarf I just finished making. It took me quite some time to make, but thankfully I finished it just in time for the cold winter months ahead.

  3. LOL, I love that character (even if I didn't know her what her name was before now...). She was in X-Men 2, right? I'll have to go rewatch that now. :)

    The first necklace and the ring are really pretty! And, wow - I didn't know you could knit?! That's pretty darn cool. :)

    I love dainty accessories as well, but the necklace from Monsoon is something that I'd purchase for myself too haha!

  8. Congrats to your husband ; D His ego must be just about bursting already. Haha!

    I love your jewelries, actually. It's very rare that I find people with just a slight similar jewelry-taste to mine, but I really like what you got there and how you arranged everything.

  26. wow you have a huge jewelry collection! I really like how each piece is different to one another. The ring is so cute! I'm not very adventurous with jewelry and the irony is that my husband works with jewelry haha.

    Congrats on your husband winning the prize!! Oh you know My dream costume was actually Quorra from Tron Legacy too, LOL! I can never pull off her costume though, I just think it would be a amazing to look like that for one day (course it probably won't ever happen)

    THANK YOU for shopping on our website again!! I will be sending you something myself personally soon. The question is what!! *ponders*
