  2. Introducing The Pride & Prejudice Collection
    I've been working on new additions to the range of literary themed jewellery and accessories over at  The collection is inspired by some of my favourite books, quotes and words! Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice' and 'Emily Brontë's 'Wuthering Heights' are just two of the Literary classics that you will find in this collection, along with Alice In wonderland, dictionary silhouettes and much more to come. 
    I've featured some of the newest 'Pride & Prejudice' additions below, which include cute mugs, keepsake boxes, pocket mirrors and jewellery.

    This distressed jewellery / keepsake box was created using antique cream, grey and gold paints.  The box hand is adorned with stamped vintage Pride & Prejudice images of Darcy and Elizabeth and also features Mr Darcy's proposal  "In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.'' 

    A new addition that's perfect for the coffee and tea drinkers out there.  This design still follows the Darcy theme but there is also a touch of humour to this endearing declaration of love.
    This wooden bookmark features Mr Darcy's proposal along with images of Darcy and Lizzie.  A sepia tone was used for the images, text and fancy borders and swirls.
    A cute pocket mirror featuring a Jane Austen silhouette along with a Pride & Prejudice Banner and the date the book was first published '1813' exactly 200 years ago!
    The necklace has been created from actual rescued pages of a vintage copy of Pride and Prejudice and is as pictured and features 'Elizabeth' on the selected page.

    Great gifts for literary & jewellery lovers alike 
    Taking inspiration from Emily Brontë's novel Wuthering Heights and the tale of doomed lovers Catherine and Heathcliff, this jewellery Box has been given a vintage makeover and includes one of my favourite quotes "If he loved you with all the power of his soul for a whole lifetime, he couldn’t love you as much as I do in a single day.” spoken by the broody Heathcliff.  Not the sweetest love story but a powerfuly and compelling one for those who love the literary classics!
    Following on with the literary classics, this pocket mirror takes inspiration from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice novel and features the dashing Mr Darcy's proposal "You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you'' in a handwritten styled quote and there are more literary choices available at
