Elise Compson specialises in pearl jewellery and statement pieces created from semi-precious stones such as turquoise, citrine, amethyst and amber (to name but a few). Most of the jewellery is just that little bit larger than life, and perfectly in tune with this and recent seasons' 'statement jewellery' vibe.
Her pearls are quite spectacular, and range from fantastical 'Keshi' pearls to gorgeous baroque, peacock blue and palest pink freshwater pearls. Prices, when you compare them with some of the major pearl galleries, are reasonable and almost all the necklaces have pendants you can clip on, making them extremely versatile.
There is a collection of bracelets and classic earrings, however the necklaces are what really stand out here and if you want to make a statement this is definitely a place to have a browse.
I was going to write about 'what to wear to the gym' today, but I'm still waiting for more replies to my Twitter poll, so the jury's out on that one - hopefully tomorrow. And the daughter, having finally got her luggage back from South Africa and safely to Australie, has now decided that she wants to go back to SA. Kids! What can you do with them?
A large box has just arrived from My Pure full of natural beauty goodies for me to try and then tell you about, so more about that one later too.
