I think these little necklaces with miniscule plants inside are just adoreable. Its not often i go for cute tiny little delicate pieces, but this one in particular makes me smile.

She calls them wearable planters, featuring tiny plants such as succulents in tiny pots to wear around your neck. I personally love the concept of wearing something living on you. Sort of like being able to take your pet to work.

I think if i had a little bit of herb such as sage worn around my neck during the day it would be a real pick-me-up, like having a sniff of essential oils to get you through the day, but the real thing.

I am a big fan of Nicholas King.

I saw his new collection recently at London Fashion Week Exhibition. The resin pieces mixing a bit of vintage with a bit of mad scientist are irresistible.

This resin necklace is embedded with watch bits and pieces as well as little pearls and other treasures. It reminds me of what you find when you empty your jewellery box out onto a table.

I really love the chain on this necklace, the fan shaped pendant has a vintage shanghai feel to me. Reminds me of my grand mother's costumer jewellery from the 50s.
