Hello, everyone! Today Amy of Ten Penny Dreams is taking over my blog!
As a writer and book lover, I’m addicted to words.
Words are magical: they allow us to craft stories, convey meaning and emotion, make connections and express ourselves. The right words can have a powerful effect on how we choose to live our lives or how we perceive the world around us.
That’s why I love to incorporate words into my daily life in unusual ways. Literary jewellery is a big favourite of mine.
This is one of my most worn pieces of jewellery. The quote is from Wuthering Heights, a book that I’ve never been keen on, but I find this line really speaks to me. I bought the necklace during a difficult time in my life and wearing it every day reminded me to be strong and believe in myself.
Like most of these pieces, I bought this on Etsy from Jezebel Charms who has a fantastic range of similar pieces, all inspired by classic literature.
Our wedding last year had an unofficial literary theme and this necklace fitted perfectly. I’m not really a sparkly, glittery girl and I wanted to wear something different. I saw this necklace on Etsy in the COGnitive Creations store and fell in love with the vintage look.
These necklaces actually feature tiny notebooks and were ordered from Romania from Ksurdnasjournals, who also makes beautiful leather bound journals.
Perhaps not immediately literary themed, this necklace is a new purchase. The image is by a photographer called Nicola Taylor who captures self-portraits inspired by fairy tales. I particularly love her work as she is based only a few miles from where I live and many of her photographs are taken in beautiful areas nearby, including this one.
Do you have any literary inspired jewellery?
Be sure to check out Amy's blog, Ten Penny Dreams, and tell her I said hello!
Have a lovely weekend!
