Summer Jewellery favourites

Summer is almost over so I'm making the most of wearing my seasonal jewellery. I'm a big fan of quirky necklaces and have been since my early teens. I've collected some colourful pieces, some I've kept to this day although some, like a multicoloured chain mail number, didn't quite make it into my grown up jewellery box!

I really like pieces that mix unusual with classic. Three of my current favourite brands are Bill Skinner, And Mary and Alex Monroe. All three have lots of animals and nature in their designs which I really like.

 For today's post I want to share some amazing pieces from the And Mary range. All made from porcelain and hand painted in Scotland. I'm really excited by these new additions. I've been wearing the strawberry necklace a lot as well as the little bee - which I blogged in my last post (here) sorry for not including a photo!

The detail on all of the jewellery by And Mary is amazing, from the little leaves on the pineapple to the wings on the blue tit. I felt inspired by the jewellery to create a tropical summer painting too. I haven't managed to paint very often, or nearly as much as I would want, but when I have I've been creating colourful little watercolours to add colour into my surroundings.

And Mary have so many beautiful pieces on their website, I really adore the little acorn necklace (here), which will go on my Autumn wish list. Until then I'm hoping for more sunshine as I'm just not ready to say goodbye to summer.

Which necklace is you're favourite?

  5. Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Many thanks! Learn more
