ENAMEL SWEETNESS

I like jewelry a lot. Well, in general I like all things pretty so I guess this is no big news. But the thing is, I seldom wear any. I guess this is due to both harbor work and shows for which they need to be removed, and also since I sometimes like to keep things simple. And am a bit lazy -when I do I mostly wear one piece of jewelry for some time and only that one and then move on to the the next item in my box.

But that doesn't still mean I wouldn't enjoy to look at pretty things. Or buy them. I have a weakness for that. I've also always had a weakness for all things enamel. This goes for both kitchenware and accessories. Here are a few examples (of which not all may actually be enamel, but they have the touch of it) :

This would have been wonderfully kitchy for Easter, right?

The happy pink elephant and happy chick are both from Kiti's.



Rose drop earrings from Divine Rose.



Floral bowed bead from Aliquo



Enamel bangs from Bullfinch & Barbury.







Robins, mermaids and Lovers' Locket from For the Cross Jewelry.

I got myself one of the above.
Which one do you think?

Such a lovely selection. I adore enamels too - they can be so pretty.

awwww, the mermaids are adorable.I'd go for them, but I think you chose the birds...
With me, it's pretty much the same if it comes to jewellery. I have a huge collection, I almost never can resist to buy something new, but I wear a piece of jewellery only once a month...I don't really know why...

Oowee. They're all so delightful. There is something about the Soldier Boy and his Little Lady with the envelope that really got my attention. Thank you for these great photos.

They are all so cute! I think the elephant is my favourite. I have a bad habit of buying pretty things too! My jewellery box is over flowing (ok all three of my jewellery boxes are over flowing...) but I tend not to wear most of it very often. At least things won't get worn out :)

Oooohhhh I really love the bottom four. Hmmm, my favourite would be the mermaid one, and I think you got... the mermaid one? Because of the sea? Or the birdy one because of the swallow!

They are all really beautiful!

In regards to your dress dilemma posted earlier, one of them is available online in size 8. You'd have to replace the zipper, but that would be, what 10 euros? Keep an eye on it, if it's your size!!!
