Art Deco Necklace – perfect valentines gift

February 6, 2009 · Filed Under Art Deco Pendant · Comment 

This just has to be the perfect art deco valentines gift.

I love the colours, but even better are the materials used in this art deco pendant. Shell, rope and metal. Who’d of thought that would make such a pretty necklace?  It’s actually, ‘crushed natural shell encased in a clear resin.’  So that’s what gives the art deco necklace the shiny look.  It looks kind of sparkly to me as well.

I’m not sure how low the art deco necklace sits, but I think the way that this pendant is attached to a rope makes it really versitile.

You could really have fun with this, adapting it into an art deco brooch or key chain. And best of all, it comes with a free travel jewellery roll, so if you are giving this as a valentines gift, you’ll get a little something for yourself as well!

Art Deco Necklaces – choosing the perfect pendant

February 3, 2009 · Filed Under Art Deco Pendant · Comment 

I was just looking at that picture in my last post about Mae West and thinking what a fabulous art deco necklace she was wearing.
It is simply stunning.
But you know what makes it so jaw-dropping?  It’s the combination of the art deco necklace with that dress.  I mean, imagine that art deco necklace on a high necked dress, or one without such a sweet-heart neckline.  It simply wouldn’t have the same impact.

The thing that makes any art deco necklace so eye-catching is the outfit you put it with, something that many people overlook.
I think perhaps, people spend more time on deciding what shoes would look good with a dress rather than think about what art deco necklaces would look good, when really it should be the other way around.
Because,  think about it, how many people will be looking down in the area where your shoes are and how many people will be looking in the area where your art deco necklace will be?  See, it’s not rocket science, which is why it’s vital to pick the perfect art deco necklace that compliments your neckline.   Here are some quick tips.

Firstly, remember the occasion.  Don’t go overboard, a big diamond art deco necklace Read more

Wedding Jewellery

It’s funny, but getting great wedding jewellery can be something that’s overlooked.

Most brides I talk to spend months, heck, even years getting the wedding flowers, wedding photography and wedding dress just right, they even spend more time on the wedding favours than they do the wedding jewellery.

Silver necklace – six silver hearts

January 21, 2009 · Filed Under Art Deco Pendant · Comment 

With Valentines coming up, it’s only right that I feature some wonderful valentine gifts, and I adore this Six Silver Hearts Necklace from Promod.

At only £12.00, this silver necklace is an absolute steal.  I especially like the design on each of the little silver hearts, close inspection on the third one along from the right shows wonderful detail.  A lined patterned background with a tiny heart right in the centre.  Beautiful.

The chain is a little clunky for my liking, but at this price, I would be tempted to buy the silver necklace and then fashion it to my own tastes.  I might put a finer chain on or wear the silver hearts vertically.  I suppose you could also make this into a silver bracelet, if you so desired.

The possibilites are endless!  Overall a lovely little silver necklace that will charm anyone this valentines for sure.

Antique Necklace

This c1930 Vintage Art Deco diamante necklace
is stunning.

At the time of writing it is in stock,but of course, with it being a antique necklace, it may not be around for very long.

The antique necklace is dated at around 1930, and is in typical art deco design, with the central point being made of three leaf shapes and two circular stones.  If you go to the website,there are a lot more pictures than the one shown here, and the antique necklace is shown in all of it’s glorious detail.
