He holds a crystal phial that has colours like the moon.

Isn’t this necklace stunning? It’s from Bijou Bijoux, my new favourite shop on Etsy. The little phial makes me think of messages in bottles, smuggled poison and secret potions.

(scuse my chipped nail polish!)

Etsy is fantastic for discovering unusual, quirky items, usually at a reasonable cost. As a jewellery-maker myself (more on that VERY soon) I love seeing how other people approach their designs and what gives them inspiration. The jewellery from Bijou Bijoux is delicate and sweet, but well-made and very durable (also, I love the old-fashioned sweet shop wrapping!).

This is on my Christmas list:

But so are these…

You can check out the gorgeous designs at the Etsy shop or the website!

Also if you’re a Londoner, Alice (the brains behind Bijou Bijoux) is going to be selling at a market day on 4th December:
