My Review:

David is the awesome designer behind BrooklynArts and he was truly such a pleasure to work with. He replied quickly and was so passionate about the jewelry that he sells!

I was sent two amazing products from Brooklyn Arts: The Vivienne Clover Necklace and theOrganic Hammered RoseYellow Gold Oval Bangle Bracelets.

I love that each piece of jewelry came lovingly wrapped in bright pink tissue paper and a lovely box finished off with a ribbon bow. I am a huge packaging person and love when companies go the extra mile by providing fancy packaging. The packaging was so lovely that it would not need to be gift-wrapped if you were giving the jewelry as a gift.


The first piece that I was sent to review was The Vivienne Clover Necklace which is a stunning necklace that features finely formed clovers that are formed from black onyx enamel and then expertly edged with 14k Gold plating. The necklace features tweleve enamel clovers and is finished off with three bigger statement making open clovers. I love the fact that this necklace is enamel plated on both sides because you never have to worry about your necklace being flipped!

The Vivienne Clover Necklace is a great necklace for layering as it can be worn multiple ways. It has a total length of 36.5 inches plus an additional three inches in adjustable length. It can be worn long as is or if you wanted you could double up the necklace so that it goes around your neck twice! I also was able to make it into a bracelet that looked extra fancy!


I was also sent the lovely Organic Hammered RoseYellow Gold Bangle Bracelets that retail for $39.70 for a set of three bangles. These bracelets while being light and delicate on your wrist pack a huge punch of wow with it's addition of sparkly crystals. These bracelets are seriously versitile and would work so well with any outfit that you might wear! They would make the total everyday bracelet or work well with stacking with other bracelets! The huge trend right now is stacking bracelets and these bracelets would make a great addition to any stack!


Each bangle set features two brushed 18K rose gold bangles with one 18K brushed yellow gold bangle that serves as the centerpiece since it features glistening crystals. I love that you also have the option of customizing your bracelet stack and getting this set in all yellow gold or all rose gold! David is super awesome to work with and he will make sure that you are totally satisfied!

Charlie and Marcelle Jewelry Review

Looking for amazing jewelry that is dainty yet packs a huge punch? Charlie and Marcelle is an amazing shop that specializes in handmade jewelry that is personalized to fit each person. It captures the magic of a joy for life and allows people to truly express themselves.



Kristina is the talented designer behind Charlie and Marcelle and you can truly tell all of the love that she puts into each piece that she makes. And it's no wonder that it's a labor of love for her because she named her shop after her mother Charlie who sadly passed away from breast cancer when Kristina was only 17. Charlie actually fostered a deep love for jewelry in her daughter and Kristina honours her mother by creating lovely pieces to inspire others.



Kristina strives to put magic into people's lives through the creation of her jewelry and hopes that she can make you look fabulous! I also love the fact that most of her pieces are under $30 so it's super affordable!


People are really taking notice of Charlie and Marcelle in fact the Initial Bracelet was recently featured in People Magazine's Style Watch! Such a huge accomplishment! There is an amazing sale going on right now where if you buy two bracelets you will get another one for free! I love that they are also so affordable at only $25!


I love the motto that is behind Charlie and Marcelle! It's truly inspiring:

Every piece of jewelry is made with the intent to bring you what you might be needing a little more of. Whether it be love, luck, prosperity or protection. All are positive and, all are Magical. Now all you must do is simply Believe.

My Review:


Kristina was so kind to send me the amazing My Mako Shark Tooth Necklace from her collection and it arrived in a lovely gift box perfect and ready for gift giving! Kristina also included a lovely note and I truly appreciated the extra touches she put into it!


My Mako Shark Tooth Necklace has also graced the neck of Miley Cyrus! In fact Miley has been seen rocking out in this necklace on multiple occasions!



My Mako Shark Tooth Necklace features a genuine sharks tooth is hand wire wrapped in gold filled wire and strung on a gold filled chain.

Sharks teeth actually is believed to bring
good fortune, keep away evil spirits and protect surfers against accidents. I love the thought that this necklace is a little good luck charm and that it protects me whenever I wear it. Each shark tooth is different so it may not look like the necklace in the pictures but it will always be fabulous!


I love that the necklace is finished off with two tiny emerald gems! The necklace measures 18 inches long but Kristina is more than willing to alter the length to best fit your layering needs. This necklace is also available in different coloured suede for $15 less and is unisex so both guys and girls can rock it! I find that it makes the perfect layering piece.

If you love Charlie and Marcelle as much as I do stay tunned for an amazing giveaway!
