I love a good trade! It is a wonderful way to acquire new accessories without feeling guilty for spending money. Plus a girl can never have too much handmade jewellery!
When my lovely instagram friend Ali from Behind the Door asked if any makers were interested in doing a trade I raised my hand straight away ‘Pick me! Pick me!’
However as Ali had already purchased from me not too long ago I wasn’t sure if she would want to add anymore headbands to her ever growing According to Alana collection so soon. I was over the moon when she agreed to do a swap as I have had my eye on her pretty sparkly handmade jewellery for sometime.
Now for those who don’t know of Ali she makes the most gorgeous sparkly glitter stud earrings for her jewellery label Behind the Door which is based in Adelaide, South Australia. Ali has the most stunning collection of glitters which she uses in her jewellery making. The earrings she creates with her glitters always look so pretty in photos and are not like anything else I have ever seen. It was a tough decision but I chose the Blue Mermaid Stud Earrings and Tequila Sunrise Stud Earrings both in 12mm round size.
When my gorgeous Handmade Happy Mail arrived I was amazed by my new earrings. Is it possible for something to look even more beautiful in real life? Well, my gorgeous super sparkly earrings definitely did and they were crafted to perfection! I couldn’t wait to wear them. I chose the Blue Mermaid Stud earrings first as I tend to wear a lot of blue.
They are definitely the sparkliest stud earrings I own. The 12mm size is perfect for my ears and the blue is a real pop of sparkly colour! I wore these earrings morning until night and they didn’t hurt or irritate my ears one little bit.
Oh and how amazing are the Tequila Sunrise Glitter Stud Earrings?
They are highly original and unlike anything else I have seen in the handmade marketplace.
I am always keeping a lookout for makers who are authentic and find their own niche in the handmade world and Ali has definitely done just that with her beautiful handmade accessories.
These sparkly stud earrings have been a wonderful addition to my handmade jewellery collection.
