oooh I love a bit of sparkle - Erika & Elvis / Elliott Swarovski blingage

One of my very first posts was about these pendants from Swarovski - the original post is here


I never got one of these pretties because they're way expensive for something which I couldn't really wear that much.  I don't think I've ever paid more than about £30 for something that's essentially just fashion jewellery.  I noticed the other day that they're still making these cute little creatures in all new ranges.



I think these are a valentine's type range, they look like love bugs! 


I love this one, he's dressed as a blinging little squirrel!



 I really like these coloured ones too, especially the little lilac Erika.  



And prettiest of all, pink and purple bling with butterfly wings!

So kitsch and fun, but they're all between about £140 - £170, yikes!  One of the things that drew my attention back to these is that I spotted a copy on ebay ridiculously cheap. I'm sure the quality would be bad and the stones would fall off, so it's probably not worth the bother, and none of them were as pretty as the real thing.

I also noticed that they no longer have Elvis, it's now Elliott.  What's that all about?  Did Erika dump Elvis for Elliott?!

I can't decide if I like the squirrel or butterfly best, but I think it's inspired me to want a squirrel necklace of some sort!

  4. I never know to pick jewellery! That's why I never ever buy an expensive one, because I just can't be completely sure that 'yes this is the one i totally completely want' and then spend a lot of dosh on it and be content.. I would always be so undecisive thinking I picked the wrong one, hah! :P I think I like the light blue one the best though :)
