Friday is finally here, and even if I work this weekend (again), at least I'll be able to sleep in since I'm done with the course I was doing in the mornings this week, and I'm back to my 3 pm to 10 pm usual shift.
To celebrate Friday I want to introduce you all to a shop full of extremely unique and also eco friendly necklaces and other accessories called akaCinders, and that is run by the talented Cinders herself!
Cinders make the most unique necklaces and broochs with flowers she makes out of eco-friendly felt, that has been spun from recycled plastic bottles. Talk about a green fashion statement!
I discovered Cinders' Etsy shop a while back, through her daughter, Poppy, the talent & threads behind Poppy's Wicked Garden (I have to say, talent does run in the genes in their family!), and I had been keeping an eye on it, till I saw the Sweet Hearts Dance necklace and fell utterly in love with it! It's super cute, and I think the vintage style heart charm absolutely makes this necklace!
Unless you buy something from her Ready to Ship section, all of the necklaces are made to order, so Cinders gets to work on your necklace after your purchase, it will mean it won't be the one you see in the photo, but it will be made just for you and will look just as lovely, even if there might be some slight differences, since the felt flowers are cut by hand.
I got my necklace super fast, and it came in a lil recycled cardboard box, with Cinders' hand stamped logo, that not only protects your necklace from being squished during shipping by not-so-careful postal workers, but also is ideal to store the necklace since it will make sure it won't collect any dust or be crushed by any other necklaces you might have in your jewellry drawer.
This necklace is meant to be worn as a choker, and it adapts to different neck sizes with the extender chain. It can be worn many ways, but I think it looks cuter if worn on one side of the neck!
If you're thinking you want one yourself, you're lucky! Cinders has a great promotion on her Etsy shop right now, if you spend over $20, you get a free Double Gerbera necklace! It's valid till Feb 14th and it's her way of saying Happy Valentine's Day to all her customers!
