Simplicity is a beautiful thing. I've seen some wonderful necklaces in the past, big and complicated and truly unique. They'd certainly grab attention. But, I know that I would never wear them. While I once went through a 3-year punk/gothic phase, where the more complicated the clothes and accessories, the better, I am no longer interested in drawing attention to myself. I like to fade into the background and go by unnoticed. I'm quite self-conscious about many, many things, and I've found it's easier to be ignored, and I much prefer it, and so my wardrobe and jewellery box are filled with mostly decidedly mundane products.
And so, it's natural that I am drawn to CharmTopia. Their jewellery is very simple, and all silver - which I massively prefer over gold - and I have to say, I'd love to bag most of it.
I absolutely adore these tiny fruit pieces. Kiwi is my favourite - I've always loved the way the inside of kiwis look, and the colour is just awesome. They're mounted on wood and a silver chain, and they look like they sit so lightly and comfortably around the neck. I need one.
The simple silver charms are so minute and subtle as to be unnoticed by passers by, or to work so well with a simple dress this Christmas as to completely make the outfit. Simple jewellery can be used all the time - casually, and formally - especially if it's silver. Silver goes with everything, and glints so wonderfully in the light.
CharmTopia has a wonderful array of simple necklaces, bracelets and earrings like these: woodland, books, fruit, hobbies - there's no way that you wouldn't be able to find something for your Christmas or New Year outfit
