Wild Horses Couldn’t Stop Me…

Wild horses couldn’t stop me from writing about this next hanker. I’ve written before about the horse wallpaper I’ve hankered after for years. But Bill Skinner’s wild horses jewellery range has surpassed even that hanker. Here is the bracelet in rose gold.Bill Skinner GAlloping Horses

Isn’t it magnificent? The ruthenium version is in the sale at £57 instead of £95. It also comes in gold and all three do up with a magnetic clasp.

Alternative Easter Gifts

Easter isn’t something we really celebrate which is why I enjoyed my Easter so much at the home of those who do. The only part of Easter my family take part in is the chocolate side of things and a couple of extra days off, which isn’t proper Easter. And this year we’re not even doing that as my mum and my daughter have stipulated a no chocolate rule, so I was looking at some alternative presents.

I had to look twice when I saw this chocolate crème egg necklace. You may have random kids trying to lick it though, I warn you… This is £7 by Blue Cherry Jewellery who also do very realistic nibbled chocolate mini egg earrings.

Will the sterling silver hungry bunny on this necklace ever reach the carrot I wonder? A bit more expensive at £59 but a unique design.

Some of us in the UK will be doing Easter egg hunts in the snow this year and this sterling silver snow globe ring captures this perfectly. It’s also available with a brown bunny or deer inside at £75.

Or more spring-like with a patch of grass and no snow at £73.

What do you give at Easter in place of chocolate?

Burns Night Bling

Celebrate the Scottish language with Glaswegian designers Bonnie Bling who make acrylic jewellery inspired by Scottish slang. You may remember the Amelia Lily knuckle dusters on X Factor? They designed them in collaboration with Obscure Couture. You can get your own custom-made pair for £40.

Although knuckle dusters played a part in my husband and I getting together (yeah, a long story) I can’t think of an occasion that I would wear knuckle dusters, but this I heart Haggis necklace is very appropriate for Burns Night tonight.

I’m afraid I really don’t heart haggis, but I’m going to try to like Scotland’s national dish by making this veggie version I saw over on Domestic Sluttery.

If you don’t have pierced ears these Och Aye earrings are available as cufflinks or knuckle dusters or without the ‘Aye’ as a brooch and necklace.

The Ginger badge is definitely my favourite. I think because it reminds me of my brother and of Irn Bru – two of my favourite things.

Enjoy your Burns Night celebrations!
