It’s me, Helen here. I don’t normally do these STATIWC posts, largely because I have a poor sense of style – if you ever see a roaming gang of DTSFT ladies, you’ll recognise me as the one with the scuffed shoes, tracksuits bottoms and food-stained top. That’s kind of my uniform, but you don’t see me bragging about it, jeez.
Anyhoo, one thing I love is big, stupid jewellery – you know, the stuff that’s as subtle as Lethal Bizzle song and almost as jarring. One website I love is www.galibardy.com – handmade, funky jewellery that actually manages to be cool, different AND not totally ugly. One of my favourite pieces from her current catalogue is this:
Holy crap, it’s massive isn’t it? I want it so damn much – and it’s only £12! Some of the stuff on her website is a lot pricier, but this is, in my opinion, the best thing on there at the moment. It’s a little bit Big Brother, Illuminati-esque… but that’s not a bad thing, right? Regardless of the fact that the utterly dreadful Rita Ora seems to be a fan, Galibardy’s stuff is awesome.
There also this one:
I don’t actually like the look of this one that much, but check it out here. Here’s the plan: Fill it with melted chocolate, then go about your business, giving it time to cool and set. Snack-time rolls around, just crack open that pendant, my friend – you’ve got yourself a chocolate cat. THAT’S THE DREAM! I’d say a reusable chocolate cat cast is worth the asking price of £28, wouldn’t you?
If you see something you like, you’d better snap it up quick – the items change all the time and once they’ve gone, they’ve gone! You can get updates about new products via Galibardy’s Facebook page.
