If it's not superlambananas, it must be...
Apologies to the Dude for the sustained lack of anything he can get his critical teeth into, but there a few items of jewellery-related news which I feel it incumbent on me to pass on.
Firstly, my great friend Nicole has opened a new Etsy shop Beijo Flor. In recognition of the fact that most people are currently feeling the pinch financially, she's produced some simpler pieces at extremely reasonable prices. Prices which are made even more reasonable by the fact that you can buy anything at 10% off the listed price in her grand opening sale. Everything in the shop is very recognisably Nicole - no-one else combines stones and colours in quite the same way.
Secondly, Veronica is holding one of her periodic 50%-off-everything-in-the-store sales - always a good opportunity to get hold of something classy for less than you might expect. Now that Veronica is offering lots of gemstone rings, the sale allows you to get one made to fit your ring size* for well under a tenner - and the shipping is free!
(* Here's how to work out your ring size in foreign.)
Thirdly, I found out yesterday that it's possible to buy a book of photographs of the lovely Bek's amazing jewellery designs. Be Clever...The Art of Bek Caruso can be ordered from Blurb.com. I've checked, and they ship internationally. The book is in a chunky 7" x 7" format - so nice in the hands - and is on my list of things-to-buy-when-I'm-slightly-less-impoverished.
Ok, that's it, My need to spread the word is (temporarily) assuaged. On with the motley!
