Pretty

We are re-stocked on Trois Petit Points – a lovely, feminine line of jewelry from Paris. We have the enamelled lockets back in stock, as well as the “Plumetis” and “Twist” necklaces. I know my phone does a completely inadequate job of capturing them (note to self: invest in a proper camera soon), but hopefully you get the idea. The colours are beautiful and soft with a romantic edge. So, if you can’t make it to Paris anytime soon, you can wear a little bit of the city around your neck!
