My Oh My! Glamourous Jewels

It's Monday and in these parts that means I share a little bling to zing up the start of your week.

I'm really excited to introduce you to a most talented Australian jewellery artisan, Annette Piper.
Annette's store was one of my gifts of serendipity last week [thank you Millie for the tip] and I was beside myself when I opened 'the doors'.
As soon as I saw the sign that said 'Bringing Glamour Into Your Life' I knew this was the place for me!


Annette has the most stunning array of jewels and such a talent for combining them to create pieces that range from classic to contemporary with all sorts of gorgeous in between.

If you're a regular 'Gifter' you will know that my taste tends towards pearls and blue stones but Annette has cleverly swayed me to consider amethyst's and citrines.  I mean look at the pieces on this page, stunning right?


That's the thing about Annette, she not only creates the most amazing jewellery, her enthusiasm for gems means that when you visit her store you find yourself being intrigued by colours and names of stones that you may never have encountered before.


In addition to finding new favourites, I've bookmarked Annette's store as a one stop 'go to' for all things gem related.  I was delighted to learn that amethysts are actually one of my birthstones along with aquamarine, moonstone and jade.  If Captain V. ever needs to buy me something from her store, he can  go to the ring size guide and check it against something that I already have, likewise for necklaces.

For the fashion forward amongst you, Annette has a section with all of the Pantone colour forecasts for both Northern and Southern hemispheres - seriously I love this store!


Just when you thought that it couldn't get any better, Annette has a present for one lucky 'Gifter', a pair of classic white pearl studs. These are the perfect accessory in any woman's wardrobe and I'm so excited to think that it might be you who receives them.


To be in the draw just follow these simple steps and I will announce the winner this time next week.

1. Be a follower of this blog - I would like these beauties to adorn the ears of one of my 'Gifters'

2. Visit Annette's store and come back to comment on which pieces caught your eye

3. For a second entry, include details of the giveaway on your blog [leave a separate comment to let me know that you did this]

4. For a third chance leave another comment letting me know what your two favourite birthstones are

Good luck, we will close the barrel on Sunday 6th March at 2pm [AEST].

  2. My engagement ring has a moonstone on it (and I love it) so I think a few more moonstones in the form of a Callista bracelet might be called for in the future!

    I so love the reference for Capt. V to do some checking out on her store and of course the ring selection guide is VERY helpful :)

  20. I think I might need to get my ears pierced! I'm really not a 'jewellery person' but I just spotted the zebra jasper earrings - beautiful snowy white with ripples of black. Just gorgeous, very monochrome (and very me).

    Actually I would absolutely love the pearl studs on offer too!

  29. My wishlist is to own a collection of colourful necklaces that I can wear to brighten up an otherwise ordinary outfit.

    For that reason I absolutely love the Lanai – sponge coral and silver necklace.
