I have only just discovered the fabulous style icon - and nonagenarian - Iris Apfel (pictured above.) Recently, The Women's Room wrote about the upcoming launch of her new range of jewellery. Judging by her love of over-the-top gems and beads, I think I'm going to like it. A lot.
Apfel is a self-confessed fan of 'fun jewellery with big stones - so large they would be untouchable if they were real.' Apparently she used to take empty masking tape rings and decorate them with black markers to make beautiful bangles. Well, if home-made jewellery is good enough for her, then I am proud to show off some of the pieces in my collection. They were, I should point out, all made by Buddy and Daisy.
1. Glitter and Button bracelet
2. Silver Straw necklace
3. Pretty Preztel necklace (edible)
4. Flashy Foil cuffs (made from Easter Egg wrappings)
5. Fireworks tiara
Bold, fun and original; I love my jewellery. And a piece from Iris Apfel's collection would fit right in, don't you think? Not that I'm - ahem - hinting or anything.
