Black and White

Black and White

Black and white are such easy colours to wear and I just love this look: so classy teamed up with black and off-white accessories. However, it can be a little boring! Enhance with brightly coloured accessories (I love red but other colours would be equally as effective) for a more daring outfit.

Went to Birmingham today looking for Christmas presents, but came home with the Symphony dress from All Saints for me. It looks fab on, and can't wait to wear it. I already have boots similar to those shown and now need to save up for the bag. Maybe I'll be lucky and get it for Christmas!

Below is a collection of jewellery that would look amazing with this set, and is available to purchase from my on-line shop at Unfortunately, I haven't mastered the art of adding my own designs to Polyvore yet!

I won Cookson Gold 'Design of the Week' Competition

OMG I am so excited! A couple of weeks ago I happened to notice that Cookson Gold, a company I sometimes buy silver from were having a 'Design of the Week' competition and so I decided to enter with this wonderful bracelet I made for my birthday last year (hubby bought the silver, and his parents bought the gemstones). It is made from a multilink chain with around 100 Multi-Gemstone Faceted Rondelles (Citrine, Peridot, Aquamarine, Carnelian, Amethyst, Moonstone, etc, etc) attached to it, and I absolutely love it. It goes with anything and I wear it lots!

I was a bit dubious about entering the bracelet as I'd actually made it last year but I'd only just decided on what catch to put on it and had finished it that week so, hey ho!

Now, I never ever win any competitions, so imagine my delight when I received an E-Mail telling me I'd won! Not only that, it wasn't even a prize draw competition. It was one where people had actually liked my design.

The prize was a Dremel Versaflame, which means I now have the ability to solder my own links and hopefully create designs that I couldn't do before, so watch this space (although I need to master it first) and hopefully, I won't burn the house down!!
