Ribbons & Filigree

Monday, 27 May 2013

My parents-in-law gave me this unusual bracelet from Colombia when they visited us last autumn. I love it as it's so different and pretty.


It came with a selection of ribbons which are interchangeable ~ so I can choose the colour according to my outfit.







Filigree is a popular handcraft in Colombia, made from silver threads intricately joined together to form a delicate and detailed pattern.












Last week I took a trip to my favourite London haberdashers, MacCulloch & Wallis, to pick up a few more ribbons in colours that I'm currently wearing.



This is a lovely, flexible piece, which is really individual, I doubt I'll see many other people wearing it!

Do you have any jewellery which you can adapt according to your mood?
