All About The Necklace

Sometimes it’s all about the accessories . I guess that’s why I have always loved black as it really is the perfect blank canvas . I spied the black and white Summer Berries Jianhui London necklace on Instagram and knew that it would be a valuable addition to my Summer accessories.  I have not only admired his designs but love the fact that they are ethically made using recycled materials. After an exchange of direct mails to the designer regarding price , shipping costs, etc I went ahead with my purchase.

I am thrilled to bits with the necklace and know it will have many outings over the Summer . I couldn’t wait for the warmer weather so last Sunday on a slightly warmer day I wore the necklace with my Rundholz dress from last Summer , worn over a black knit and black and white spot tights. I added a collection of black and white bangles , a little black hat and Preen black and white sunnies.


Today’s photos were taken at the Trevallyn Reserve ,a popular spot for walking and mountain bike riding.Next weekend John has organised a car club drive that finishes up here so we were double checking the route and the picnic spot.

This is the Hoo Hoo Hut where we plan to have a picnic afternoon tea after the run . I have only recently found out the origin of the name. Apparently Hoo Hoo is the name of a service club whose members are involved in the timber industry.

This little guy stopped to check us out but hopped off before I could get a closer shot.

    That is a fabulous necklace! The words necklace doesn’t justify this piece of art. And even better where it’s made from. How nice to have a run again, abs a afternoon tea is always welcome isn’t it!

      Many thanks Nancy , I must agree the necklace is a piece of art. It certainly is good to be safely out again.
