I adore gold bracelets - love the first one.

There are a lot of goodies on Alex Keller's site. I think the baubles - a necklace of vintage and recycled jewelry is quite amazing. =)

Little Rus said...

Beautiful post, darling! I LOOOOOOOVE bracelets! More than any other jewellery, I think. Funnily enough, I was browsing this etsy shop today... Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the giveaway and the name! If I won I'd go for the spring daffodils bracelet. The colours are simply magical and I feel so happy by looking at it. Will keep fingers crossed... So hope I can win this one.

Have a great day!

Couture Cookie said...

Oh my gosh! I just bought an Alex Keller necklace this morning, and blabbed about it on Cafe Fashionista's blog...

But there is always room for more in my jewelry box! I would love to get my hands on the "Love at First Sight" - it is such a lovely piece.

Omgosh, I absolutely love bracelets (unfortunately my wrists are so skinny finding the perfect ones are difficult!). But these...omgosh, I have so many things to show J to put on my Christmas list ;)
I really, really adore the chandelier drop necklace. I think it's classic and just stunning. And it would really pull a classic black dress together and make it look really special =) I also adore the Mr. Got Rocks agate pendant...that would be such a perfect everyday look =)

I do like a nice bold bracelet myself.
If I was so lucky as to win, I would buy the 'mama said - a necklace of vintage and recycled jewelry'. It's gorgeous- simple and sophisticated, plus I love pearls. It would go with everything, and just really fit in with my style.

Dumbwit Tellher said...

I am a bracelet girl thru & thru. I don't always feel comfortable sporting a necklace but put a bracele on me & I'm feeling polished. Great..great choices. Too many beauties to choose from. I must confess I am a Chanel worshiper when it comes to jewelry. I keep dreaming the dream. Great post CC xx

I love bracelets. I always wear them with all my outfits. If I was to win the contest, I would buy the "glamorous - a necklace of vintage and recycled jewelry." Gold and pearls mix together is definitely my style and I think it will go nicely with a lot of my outfits.
