Short but not so sweet.

                                                              Happy 2018 everyone!

The trees have gone and the decorations are down for another year. As exciting as it is to put them up with Christmas to look forward to, I'm never sorry to take them down again, tidy up and get back to some semblance of normality!

I don't know what it is, but maybe the overabundance of décor has made me yearn for some simple, clean lines. I'm also conscious that my earrings can sometimes get too long and complex for some people, and there are occasions when even the most boho of us need a pair that's short but still stylish.

My earrings this week feature heavily oxidised silver shells by Helen Backhouse - for such small shells, they have an incredible amount of detail and a beautiful curve. To complement them, I raided my stash of  ocean jasper - one of my favourite stones, because it has so  many different shades in. The first pair has distinct pink and grey tones, the second green and honey. It's fun picking through.  And the gloss offsets the grungy shells nicely.

                              Add some killer earwires, and you have plenty of style in a small package.

Short, but not-so-sweet!
See you in two weeks
