Looking for the last minute finishing touch to your New Year's outfit then how about checking out Eclectic Eccentricity – the brand name says it all when it comes to this company as they set about to give new life to vintage pieces as well as making beautiful pieces from gemstones featuring unique images from animals to astronauts, zombies to dinosaurs.
Each piece is handmade right here in the UK, in Norwich, where it is run from a small studio headed by Lucy the original creator of Eclectic Eccentricity and a small group of creative crafters.
I was kindly sent the beautiful Echo necklace from the Eclectic Eccentricity range – inspired by Echo, an Oread (or Mountain Nymph) of Greek mythology – who could only ever repeat the words of others – it sees a brass triangle pendent, suspended from a brass chain, beautifully accented by 3 deep purple Amethyst stones.
Amethyst is a gemstone that is said to bring calmness, inner peace and intuition to those who wear it, or hold it near and I have to admit just happens to be one of my favourites (I actually carry a few around in my handbag depending on what they are said to do and the boosts I feel I am in need of).
The necklace comes on a 46cm chain which for the design I have to say is just perfect – hanging just right to really show it off. Sadly the Echo necklace is no longer available to buy but they have plenty of other gorgeous pieces if you're an animal lover I can only suggest checking out the All Creatures Great and Small range (I personally love the Dachshund), for those who love the night sky how about a pair of Star Gazer earrings in fact I could sit and name them all so how about just popping over and checking out Eclectic Eccentricity for yourself you might just be surprised by the prices as well – the Echo necklace cost just £18!
What do you think of my gorgeous Echo necklace, can you see you treating yourself to something from EE?
