Ring The Changes.

I've been paying a lot more attention to my hands lately, as weird as that sounds! But since July, I've stopped playing piano and guitar regularly, which meant two things: firstly, I actually have fingernails now, and secondly, I've started wearing rings a lot more.

I say 'a lot', but actually my collection is pretty pathetic! I'm trying to get mine from sales and low-price shops as much as possible though; I don't want it to become an expensive habit like my earring collection. The first ring I ever bought was a beautiful £8 snake design from Topshop, which wrapped around half my finger, but it broke after I'd worn it about twice and I've learned my lesson!

From top to bottom: £1.80, ASOS (see this post for more); £1.50, The Clothes Show; £2, Dorothy Perkins; 
£3, Topshop; £4, Accessorize; £2, The Clothes Show; £2, The Clothes Show.

£4, Accessorize. Millie spotted the pendant version at the Liverpool Street Station sale and I fell in love with the ring!

£2, Dorothy Perkins. I picked this up in the sale to wear to my Leavers' Ball. 

My newest addition is this H&M ring:


They have a matching pendant too (only £2.99, unbelievably cheap!) but I don't want to fuel another jewellery collection just yet! I got comments from the changing room assistant, the girl at the till, and even the woman behind me in the queue, all saying how cute they thought it was – not that I needed much persuasion at this point since it was a mere £3.99. I've seen a lot of owl jewellery on the high street recently, mostly from Miss Selfridge, Topshop and Urban Outfitters, but nothing as low-priced as this for such a statement piece.

I just can't resist a good bargain!

  4. Lou, I've been trying to make rings out of buttons and odd earrings recently but I don't really know what I'm doing ... so it's not really working out!

    Haha, you should go for the pendant – just as long as you blog about it afterwards. ;)
