Can you adjust…
I have just discovered necklace extenders much to my delight and the new life it has applied to my necklaces. The current trend to wear necklaces at the eighteen inch or twenty inches has left a lot of my fifteen and sixteen inch necklaces sitting dormant in my jewelry cupboard sobbing their little hearts out. So I knew in theory what I needed, a necklace extender, but did such a thing exist or would I need to get one of those looped chains that hang down the back (not what I wanted). Google ... Read More

Shimmer with meaning and Nicole Fendel jewels…

Shimmer with meaning and Nicole Fendel jewels…
I have never made a secret of my love of being bejewelled (isn’t that a delicious word) so when I received an email from Melbourne based label, Nicole Fendel Jewellery, advertising the launch of their new website I had to go and take a peek. This jewellery is creative, full of promise and something a little bit different (always great to find) and to be perfectly honest instead of just the quick token glance I had intended I think I spent about half an hour admiring the different pieces on the ...

Breakfast at Tiffany’s…

Breakfast at Tiffany’s…
Yesterday morning droves of girls clad in their very best Holly Golightly headed to Collins St for Breakfast at Tiffany's. The doors to the newly redeveloped Tiffany & Co on Melbourne's Collins Street opened to an expectant public, offering the lure of marshmallows and mugs to a lucky few. It was the glamest I have seen Collins St looking in some time - even an aqua carpet was rolled out. I was sorry I was running to an early meeting and didn't get to participate in the fun. For months now the ... Read More

Hanging in there…
Is there anything prettier than shiny jewels? Perhaps - When they hang from my brand new crafting project!!A few weeks ago I realized my dangly earrings needed a new home. I had been hanging them in my jewelry cabinet but their length meant that they were beginning to tangle and I was retreating back to my no tangle studs. I may also need to admit that all my great Lovisa and Diva finds have squeezed my available space a little. I looked around at earring holders but most were either expensive or ... Read More

It’s a jungle out there…

It’s a jungle out there…
I have just spent the past two hours making a hand crafted birthday card which unfortunately looks a little like fridge worthy kinder art. While I happily admit my crafting skills are rather on the low end - they were perhaps further sullied as I was also watching Lipstick Jungle. You may not recall Lipstick Jungle, which came out about the same time as Cashmere Mafia, both designed to be the new Sex and the City but with a stronger focus on having a great career and with a blend of the cast a ...

Who’s the Diva now…

Who’s the Diva now…
Why, could it be me? If not me then at least my new necklace and bracelet. While I couldn't make it to Melbourne Central last night walking home this evening I passed by the Diva in Bourke St Mall selling 3/4 of a wall at $5 and under!!! This set I have been eying for some time now - but was never really able to justify...it's a little ladylike, a little 80's power dressing, and a little well, not my normal style. But at $5 a piece and purchased with the lucky $20 I found in the bottom of last ... Read More
