I absolutely love my new silver heart strings necklace (£19.99, pictured below) and have had so many compliments when I’ve been wearing it. The necklace itself is made from silver-lined glass seed beads, and is adorned with a Greek pewter heart. The heart is double-sided, giving a choice of ways to wear it. It’s simple but makes a statement and seems to go with everything.
It matches perfectly with the full heart earring studs (£14.99). Available in gold or silver, and with titanium posts, they’re simple enough for every day wear but classic enough to look a little dressier too.
The heart pendant on a clear wire chain (£14.99) is available in three styles – classic, hammered or angled (which you’ll see here) for something a little quirky to really off-set an outfit.
The enamel sunset pendant (£29.99) is another one I’ve been getting lots of lovely comments about. It’s available in two colour tones, warm (the pinks, reds and oranges on a gold chain you’ll see in this photo) plus cool (blue and silver tones on a silver chain). I wore it lots over the summer but the colours make it feel autumnal too.
Finally, the blue sponge gemstone bracelet (£29.99), comes with a choice of a star or heart charm and is from a collection of 21 different gemstones, in all kind of differing shades and with different meanings. Customers often choose a range of the bracelets and wear them stacked together. Blue sponge agate is a soothing and nurturing stone said to promote calmness and encourage peace of mind, and to inspire hope and joy… just what I need in my life at the moment!
Carrie began making jewellery in 1999 and is still proudly made in Wales, currently operating from a studio warehouse in Llandow, on the outskirts of Cowbridge.
