Lucky Charms

Another Instagram post tonight (sorry if you do follow me on Instagram and have seen these pieces before!), this time about my favourite antique charms of the moment. I really love layering necklaces and pendants for a more personal jewellery style and these silver charms fit perfectly together.

The silver and moonstone Hamsa hand charm I picked up on a trip to Marrakesh a few years ago. The centre swallow and horseshoe charm has a butterfly wing background. I found this charm on eBay and managed to win it for just a couple of pounds due to the butterfly wing being faded.  I think despite this damage it still makes for a lovely piece of jewellery! The antique silver coin on the right has a tiny opal inset into it.  I also have a similar coin that I bought a few years ago with a tiny sapphire inset into it and have seen a couple of others over the years.  I'd love to know more about these coins and if there was a certain reason for the stones.  They are definitely something I am going to do a bit more research into.

The chain is a Fashionology chain taken from one of their silver claw necklaces that I one in a competition a while ago.  There necklaces are great long length and are very hard wearing - their jewellery is definitely worth taking a look at as they also make gorgeous rings.

I've been wearing this necklaces quite a lot recently, I love the eclectic style of layering charms and necklaces.  They look lovely worn with summer dresses - if only we could have some better British weather!
