Dave and I have been starting to think about our christmas shopping and he wants to get me vintage brooch. He had a look around and eventually admitted defeat in the face of the masses of stuff out there and got me to have a look.
One of the things he came up with as an option was plastic costume jewellery by the French designer Lea Stein. We’d seem loads of them in the flea markets and antiques shops in Berlin, and Dave’s mum has a book on costume jewellery where they feature heavily. I thought most of the pieces were from the 1960s, but many are actually from the 1990s and 2000s – the company is still going.
I really really like them and think I will go with that as my present. The bright colours and chunkyness appeal to me and will go with my outfits, whereas something more delicately and sparkly is nice, but not for me. I think my favourite design is the owl right at the top, but I do like the cats as well.
What do you think? Which is your favourite? Have you started your christmas shopping yet?
