Anchor Necklace from Stars & Scars Jewellery.


I was on twitter the other day complaining, my favourite thing to do, about how much I wanted a glitter name necklace but they were all too expensive. Vicky from _StarsnScars came to my rescue and said she could design me my very own name necklace, in any shape I wanted, including glitter for way cheaper. I wasn't really sure what I wanted but Vicky said she had an idea and did a little sketch for me to look at & I loved it! A few days later it was on its way to me in the post and it arrived, beautifully packaged, a couple of days ago. I'm so so excited about it & I haven't taken it off since.

I'm in love with the blue glitter and the way she drew the lettering. I also love that it's all hand made which makes it unique and more personal. There are some amazing jewellery designers on sites like Etsy and Folksy who deserve all the success in the world and Vicky is absolutely one of them.

She even added a cute little blue star to the end of the chain which is a lovely touch. I'm so happy with the design and it cost £12 which is far cheaper than the one I was thinking of purchasing. Plus, this is an anchor which instantly makes it amazing!

I would recommend Vicky and her designs to everyone! Please do have a look at her Folksy, Etsy and Facebook pages, she makes some wonderful pieces & I'm sure she'll be more than willing to work with you to create a unique piece of jewellery if you pop her an email!

Do you like purchasing pieces from smaller jewellery companies or do you tend to stick to the highstreet?

  4. That is gorgeous! I like purchasing bits and bobs from smaller companies, and I've found a few really good ones through Twitter and blogging. It's always nice to get something with some individuality so you're not wearing the same high street pieces as everyone else xxx

  7. That is absolutely beautiful, I really need to check her out! I definitely focus on smaller, more independent jewelry designers, purely because everything is so mass-produced on the high street, and I always want something with a quirky, personal touch!

    Lovely post :)

    I usually stick to the high street because I'm not a massive fan of shopping online but I adore the look of this necklace.
