findings and diamonds and new things

8 October 2010

some more bits and bobs to tell you about ... these little diamond ear studs are new to the shop today.
They are the first part of a new collection of super simple diamonds which we are hoping to keep within a £150 ~ £250 price range, so that you don't have to be as rich as Lord Sugar to wear a diamond!
These studs are set in 9ct gold, and from personal experience, its really hard to find just the right studs that are not too big or surrounded with lots of metal. These are light and extremely sparkly, AND diamond is all you see!
The brilliant cut diamonds are 2.5mm diameter and they cost £240 per pair, available online soon.

also, a new Rose~cut platinum ring design, a full eternity that is very narrow and elgant with a just the right amount of sparkle so that you don't end up looking like Zsa Zsa Gabor! {price yet to be confirmed} I reckon this would make a beautiful wedding band...

more news... I found this book in a charity shop today and it was love at first sight! I'm always on the look out for attractive books to use as display or for photographing our jewellery on. I love the way it looks with this little box that we've had for a while's been sitting in a drawer for the past few years, but now it has a partner and they are working together to present my business cards on our wedding ring table. Ah.

not only that but when I looked inside, the book has a story called 'the hidden flower' seems to be set in Japan during the war. I love the illustrations on each page...

other stories in the book are 'the dam busters' and 'a fatal woman' about a female spy of course! What a lethal combo, female/spy. And, am I still allowed to enjoy those old British war flicks or is not p.c. these days? I love the theme tune to that film and all that jolly Britishness, I'm sure it was all propaganda but what the heck!

I also bought some new plants fro the shop, I love these heathers, when you look close up the flowers are tiny little bells.

And, as during tea making the other day, I stupidly dropped a used teabag right onto my suede boot, leaving a tea bag shaped splat on my right foot, I decided to pop along to Kate Kanzier and see whats on offer...I came away with these brogue boots, all leather, £40 Ka-ching!

...soooo....I been beavering away on the compooter too this week, check out the new look Bucket Tree, and RUST sites!

that's all folks! it was a longer post than I'd intended...have a lovely weekend, I hear there is a conker tournament on Hampstead Heath on Sunday! {thanks Becky x}
