‘A bird named Frank’ wants you to have something.

January 25, 2011

I have a new friend named Caryn from Cape Town, a while back she sent me a mail about her pretty jewelry range. The pictures she attached of the handmade pieces made me mail her immediately saying “send to Wolves now please”.  It was probably a bit more poetic than that, but you know what i’m getting at. So everyone say hello to ‘a bird named frank’ and Caryn.

These pieces are all sitting on the Wolves bookshelf waiting for a home, except for one, which is currently sitting in my sweaty little palm waiting for one of you. So you know what you have to do….leave me a comment letting me know what you think of ‘a bird named frank’ and i’ll pick a winner next week Friday (4th feb). The one Caryn is giving away is actually a little locket that opens and closes – it’s the kitty one below.

Thanks Caryn, you’re going to make someone very happy x

    I am beyond besotted with cats to the point that I have a ginger guy called Huckleberry Finn and a black and white chubby called Tom Sawyer…and if I were to be honoured with this prize I would definitely put a picture of each of my boys in the locket…so ta da…its perfect for me!!!! Caryn is super super clever and yay that you guys are now friends so we can all share in the gorgeousness:) xxx

  • Inge January 25, 2011 at 2:19 pm

    That might be the only cat I’ll ever own! I love all things cute and furry (and jewellery made by a bird named frank), but unfortunately my husband is allergic to cats – and to buying jewellery that makes me look really cool…

  • Jacci January 25, 2011 at 2:59 pm

    seen as though i’m that crazy cat lady with seven, yes SEVEN cats, it should be mine!

  • carenbo January 25, 2011 at 8:13 pm

    Ok ok poetry has never been mo forte but this sweet neck decor just makes me want to burst into song and smell the roses. Frank the BIrd, you are so charming!

  • Kristen January 25, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    So so nice! My friends always mock me because I am a bit of a crazy cat lady (my mom even emails me photos of my cat every Monday when I’m away at varsity). So that necklace should belong to me! 🙂

  • nymph January 25, 2011 at 9:54 pm

    Firstly, you have an awesome blog!
    Secondly, ‘A Bird Named Frank’ is absolutely beautiful! I love anything vintagey (I know that is not a word but you get what I mean… right?).
    Thirdly, that necklace would look even more beautiful around my neck! Haha 🙂

  • Mignon January 27, 2011 at 4:46 pm

    I almost forgot!
    Fourthly, I do not own any jewelry like this (YET) so this would be the perfect piece to start my collection 🙂
