tout ce qui brille | all that glitters

If you’re like me, your jewellery box is a bazaar of trinkets; old, new, precious & everyday costume bling.

During my last week of holidays I’ve been sorting, organising & spring cleaning.

I thought I’d share a peek of all my jingles, jangles & pretty shiny stuff.

I love my Tiffany & Co charm bracelet. I’ve been collecting charms for seven years! If I’m lucky, I get them for birthdays, Christmas & anniversary presents.

  • the little silver heart is from Jay for our 6th wedding anniversary
  • the blue enamel T&Co box is from Jay for my 30th birthday
  • the little silver handbag is from my Mum for my 30th birthday
  • the little blue enamel bag is from Jay for Christmas 2009
  • the little silver crown is from Jay for my 31st birthday (I’m his princess!)
  • the silver padlock is my wedding present from Jay in 2005
  • the silver Eiffel tower was my present to myself when I became a certified Project Manager (and so happened to be after we came back from Paris in 2008)
