Bugged out...

I have a new obsession..... Wait for it....

I love this necklace, from topshop:
It's so how they're all kind of in a cluster, with interlocking legs or feelers. I also think the use of black, silver and gold works very well, and giving a nice strong image.

Also like this ring:
I found it on, and I have to say I adore the detail on the body. Very pretty.

Found an addition for (any?) arachnid lovers (however bear in mind this is a 2009 piece):
It was from Zoe and Morgan, although the photo is from I love the shape- I can imagine it would look great on. The heart cut out is also a nice touch, I think it emphasises the beautiful shape. Shame you probably can't buy it now...

A slightly more scary number is this (again, from 2008 so it is not so relevant....):
I came across it whilst on vogue- by Stephen Webster. I like the nouveau-gothic style to it, and it is good that it was trying to raise Malaria awareness. This one-off ring was auctioned to raise money for a charity called Malaria No More UK, but 300 replicas were be made and sold on for £50.

Anyway, happy reading, and more posting coming up!

  1. The necklace is kind of nice, but mosquitoes and spiders.. UGH!

  2. Yes, I don't personally love the mosquito one either, but at least any money raised went to charity!

  8. Love the spider ring. (Wish it were silver though) I have a super cool necklace which reminds me of it, actually... it's a silver spider encrusted with rhinestones and its abdomen is a dangly red heart "crystal." The jaws lock onto the chain. It was only six bucks but I still can't get over it. Thanks for this post!

    Stiene Saenen- I agree!
    Flow Disruption- yes I love the first too. Very clever, yes?
