Hand necklace by Maddy Young
So it’s nearly Christmas time, nearly time for everyone to shutdown their work computer, say good bye to all their work colleagues and get the flip out of the office for a few weeks. I love this time of year, you can feel the air change and the spirit of the holiday season giddy-up into town, I love it.
A couple of days ago I got the chance to go spoil myself with something from local label Black Betty’s pop-up shop in Bryanston Shopping centre. I had a look around and left smiling with this beautiful gold and garnet ring from their Skinny Joy Collection (thanks guys).
I love getting new jewellery, it makes me so happy and I especially love getting jewellery as a present, there is something so special about it. It’s like that piece will always mean something to you and will always remind you of the person who gave it to you. I have quite a few pieces like that, things I love so much, that mean so much to me that will one day belong to Nina James. Unfortunately there are a couple of things I can’t pass on, like my mom’s engagement ring and the ring that my dad gave her when I was born that was stolen from our house, they were covered with portable possession cover, so insurance replaced their monetary value, but not their sentimental value, that’s why I’m making sure I have more than just a couple of shiny things to pass on to my NJ.
I had some time to kill this morning while Nina was napping, so I thought I would put together a post of some the nice pieces that I have stumbled across on the Internet lately, that I thought would make super nice gifts. Some are a bit pricey and some not, some are from local labels and some from overseas sources. Enjoy.
PS – I want all of them, so if ‘Santa’ or the ‘Birthday Fairy’ is checking out this post, take note!
