Trinkets on Tuesday : Barcelona Butterfly



I am so excited to be linking up today with the wonderful Naomi of Diva Mum and sharing some of my beautiful treasures every week as part of  Diva Mum's 'Trinkets on Tuesday'.

I love collecting jewellery and my eye always gravitates towards ecclectic, soulful pieces. I love pieces that tell a story or have a history to them. From a young age I would always opt for a vintage accessory over a modern one. Jewellery and adornments just add that extra sparkle to any outfit and often give an extra boost in confidence. So much easier than shopping for clothes!

I'm thrilled to be able to share my treasures with you every week and also take the opportunity to showcase some fabulous new designers that I've come across during my virtual wanderings around the pleasure-fest that is Etsy.

Todays special piece was given to me this morning by my beautiful little sister who arrived from Barcelona, Spain last night. It is a beautiful necklace featuring a gold and turquoise butterfly. My sister knows me so well. Butterflies have a very special significance in my life which you can read about here.
I also have an affinity for turquoise jewellery. It's a colour that I wouldn't wear in clothing but that I would drown myself in accessories.

Can't wait to share with you my special collection for next week.


Do you collect jewellery? What are your favourite pieces?

I adore turquoise and silver jewellery, it's my favourite thing to wear in summer and looks great with everything.

I wear the same jewellery everyday in fact I never take it off - I feel naked without it. I love jewellery that is practical and sweet and can be dressed up and down! :)
