I never buy high-street jewellery (H&M being my only exception), simply because I resent the fact the pieces rarely last a few weeks, tarnish like mad and are wildly overpriced for the quality.
I also know that that there are amazing designers out there who offer well priced, quality made designs at affordable prices that last much, much longer; fellow blogger/jewellery designer, Farah, just so happens to be one of them.
Farah approached me several weeks ago and asked me to check out her new designs (Designs by FaraM) online which I did and I have to say it was love at first click.
Her designs were simple, elegant, chic and unique. They were 'right up my street' and needless to say I placed an order with her right away.
Each piece I ordered was custom made by Farah, she adjusted the bracelet to fit my wrist perfectly, checked the lengths of chains with me and even changed some crystal colours for me, amazing!
L-R: La Perla bracelet(£14), La Corde (£15), The Grace(£11) and The Sasha (£12 - wrapped twice here).
The quality of each piece is fabulous, every chain is tarnish resistant and is 16K Gold plated, genuine Freshwater Pearls, Mother of Pearl, Onyx and Swarovski Crystals are also used.
I'm over the moon with all my pieces, but I have to say the one that stands out and I would say is the 'must have' piece is the Sasha necklace.
Similar in design to the Lisa Taubes chain necklace the Sasha is versatile, elegant and I love the addition of the randomly placed black onyx beads for a classic black/gold combination. I have literally not taken this off!!
I know this is far from make-up related but I am so happy with my latest acquisitions that I couldn't wait to share them with you, so if you are interested you can take a peak at Farah's whole collection here.
Ohhh I almost forgot, if you are interested and want to purchase then Farah has offered my readers a special 10% OFF any item, one per customer using the code YMBB10!
What do you think? Are the designs right up your street too?
