‘I Can’t Seem to Get Rid of the Horses’
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know I’m not a jewellery person. I only own a handful of pretty pieces, but often have to remind myself to put them on before I leave the house. Rings are a generally a no-no (I fiddle with them too much!), and I haven’t worn earrings for around 5 years (ditto!). That was until I got these Horse Studs from London-based designer Smith/Grey at Bottica. If I’m going to adorn myself with pieces of metal, they have to be cute pieces of metal, and what could be cuter than a horses rear-end sticking out of your ear lobe..?! Their entire collection is full of horses, but this quirky pair of studs were my favourite piece – I can pretend I’ve got a miniature golden horse jumping through my head!
Another addition to my slowly growing collection is this adorable key bracelet from Benita Blue, and a new pal in the form of this little mouse that grabs on to my little finger – a gift from my best friend Katie who has just opened her own online jewellery shop, Cherry Humbug, where you can find Mr. Mouse for a mere £3.
I’m not ready to start spending any serious dosh on jewellery, but like nail polish, I’m learning to try and appreciate it, which is usually accomplished a lot quicker when said item is animal-themed – next on my wish list is this beauty! x
P.S – I’m totally working on a DIY with all of those pearls! Watch this space…
