Lately I’ve been splurging on jewelry. It began when I purchased a lot of bakelite for super cheap at an estate sale a few months ago. I fell in love with the idea of accessorizing, and started scouring the internet and vintage stores. I also took out my plugs and the holes closed up enough to wear normal earrings, so finding retro jewelry has been an an intense obsession.
I’ve been following Splendette on Instagram for years. I’m not sure why I waited so long to purchase something from them but now seemed as good a time as any. I had a couple outfits in mind that I needed to finish, so I picked out a few items and made some amazing sets.
I love starbursts so this first set was a no-brainer. I needed something purple, so I picked these bangles and earrings.
I love the shine on these pieces! The stones are set really sturdy and the design is just marvelous.
I loved this design so much, I purchased a couple bangles and a brooch in champagne as well.
I needed something to go with this dress I purchased from Voodoo Vixen last month. When I saw these daisy bangles on IG, I knew I needed the matching earrings! Again, the design is amazing and the execution is ingenious. After figuring out how these are actually made, I’m really impressed with this designers skills.
I needed to add some white jewelry to my collection and I found these carved fakelite pieces to be the perfect bits! They are thick and sturdy, and the light milky marble is a nice touch. This purple necklace also spoke to me. The carving is unique yet screams authentic bakelite. Its bigger than I thought it would be, which is fine with me, as I feel it makes its own statement. Its still versatile enough to go with plenty of my other jewelry.
I’m beyond thrilled that I placed this order. I’m in love with every item and its all very well put together. I found the prices to be very low for what I received, I didn’t expect the quality and detail for what I spent. Shipping was fair and fast from the UK. I couldn’t recommend this company higher!
