Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know that Lillian and her partner Claire recently opened a fabulous jewellery store featuring amazingly quirky acrylic pieces .From cute animals to Punch and Judy pieces, they've got some wicked stuff. I sat watching the clock until the store opened last Monday and snapped up my two favourite pieces.
Isn't the packaging lovely? It’s like old sweet shop bags! And I'm a sucker for stickers.
This beautiful creation is Labyrinth inspired. If I need to tell you more than that, then I'm not sure we can be friends any more. Sorry. My housemate at uni had an amazing Jareth necklace and I was so jealous of it. Now I have one of my own, hooray! More Labyrinth, please, Callooh and Callay!
And look what else I snapped up! Who doesn't need a narwhal with a beret on? (My fiance say it looks like a Cherry Bakewell but that's just as good in my opinion!) I've called him Neville, because alliteration is always acceptable. If you like cute, they have a beautiful ermine brooch and some lovely regal bunnies!
Lillian is a friend of mine, so it's very hard for me not to be biased when reviewing her crafts becasue I'm very proud of her venture and want to pimp Callooh and Callay out to everyone I know! However, I can honestly say these pieces are great quality and you can tell a lot of work has been put in to them. The branding is really strong - the packaging perfectly matches the website and the business cards and little stickers are well done and are lovely touches. I know Lillian and Claire have supported indie companies for a long time and you can tell they know that the little touches really count when you're buying something online. I can't wait to see what else the girls come up with in the future and I know I'll be buying bits and bobs from them again soon.
Alright, I say soon, but I've already got this witch coming my way! Who are your favourite indie accessory companies? Any to recommend me?
