Variations on a theme


If you can remember back to just before Mother's Day in May, you will remember seeing my launch of mother-daughter locket sets I created in celebrations of mothers and daughters.  Now some six and a half months later, I was so thrilled to look back at the mother-daughter sets I have made so far.  And I was even more pleased to see that every set has been unique due to the large number of bead choices on offer.  If you'd love to surprise your mum and/or daughter with a mother or daughter locket this Christmas, the Christmas shipping deadlines are 29th November for customers outside Australia, and 12th December for customers in Australia.

Oh, the places you'll go!

Today I want to introduce you to a new addition to the literature quote range of jewellery, just in time for you to do some Christmas shopping for the Dr Seuss fans in your life!  I took Dr Seuss' famous quote, "Oh, the places you'll go!" and inset it into our popular locket necklace design, as well as the popular circle bracelet design.

I think these are perfect gifts for someone who's graduating, starting a new job, or just loves all things Seuss!  And hopefully these designs will stay in-store as a permanent fixture after the Christmas rush.  Which design do you love more?
