Grand Opulence - A/W 2012

Brace yourselves for some seriously breathtaking pieces of 'jewel'-lery!  Our new collection Grand Opulence hits the site tonight, full to the rafters of jewels, oversized Pat Butcher-esque earrings, ornate baroque pieces, statement rings and lots of general amazingness!  Luxurious costume jewellery is back with a vengeance and what better a time to make a reappearance than at the start of party season.  We'll be layering, stacking and piling on the jewels.  This A/W, more is definitely more.

These Acrylic Pink Baroque Drop Earrings, £10, are seriously AMAZE!  So OTT, nailing the baroque trend and adding a modern twist - ooh-er!  We can't wait to style with a vintage-inspired up-do and a velvet party dress.



This Opus Crystal Burst Cocktail Ring, £11, single-handedly encapsulates the complete collection.  Ornate and delicate we are totally having a love-in!



Cocktail rings are an absolute *must* this season and to that effect we just had to include another in our super-duper wishlist.  The Jade Green Marble-Effect Cocktail Ring is a steal at only £7, and with other colourways available you can afford to go cocktail ring ker-razy!



Finally (and believe us, we've kept the best 'til last), let us introduce you to this super-luxe Purple Velvet Baroque Plate Necklace, £15.  Made from sumptuous velvet and adorned with delicate gold glitter beads, we might go as far as to say this is our piece of the season!

Clutch Control - A/W 2012

Oh, how we adore a gorgeous, statement clutch!  And with party season just around the corner, our clutch bag addiction has ramped up to full speed.  Enter our new collection - Clutch Control - an eclectic mix of covetable clutch bags from the kooky skull design to the über glam gold glitter box, and everything in between! 

Since the collection dropped today, we've changed our minds approximately 50 times as to which ones should feature on our wishlist.  As it stands, these beauties make the grade:

Will we ever tire of snakeskin? Doubtful, after seeing this stunner.  The Lola Clutch Bag, £22, is bold in bright blue and grey (also available in black and aubergine), and in the season's sought after shape - the envelope - we can see it being a best seller!


The Hope Tan Clutch Bag, £22, is a definite staple for A/W (also available in red or black).  Nailing this season's stud trend, we're thinking it's the perfect accompaniment for the edgy, rock look.


You gotta love a bit of glitter for party season, right?  The Darcy Purple Glitter Clutch Bag, £25 (also available in black or gold) is a total babe.  Box clutches ooze glamour and the purple glitter is the absolute cherry on top.  NEED!


*Super amazing skull clutch alert*.  Oh yeah, our love of skulls knows no bounds.  A skull clutch is SO hot right now and The Bella, £19, tops our chart of lust.  The envelope style, *swoon*, the stud detailing, *mega swoon*, the skull pattern *faints to the floor*.  We're in LOVE!

Collared! - A/W 2012

Collars are HAWT this season and, oh so, easy to wear!  We love how throwing a collar necklace over the most basic of tops/dresses brings them bang up to date and, well basically, anything that works best with a plain tee gets the thumbs up from us.  So, naturally, we bring you Collared, our latest A/W collection.  (All this collar talk is making us more than a little obsessed with the androgynous look!).

We heart this Dixi Black Collar Necklace, £12, mainly because of its shiny black enamel which literally goes with anything but also because the bead detailing around the edge of the collar is super gorgeous.  



Oh my, this Baroque Collar Necklace, £12, is simply to die for.  Such an opulent piece and an absolute must for party season.


A derivative of the amazing collar trend is the collar chain, which pins straight onto a shirt collar.  These Skull Collar Chain Pins, £9, are sufficiently MEAN!  Halloween accessory, anyone?  


Who doesn't love a splash of leopard print?!  This Lucifer Snow Leopard Print Collar Necklace, £13, is an absolute babe!

Owls! - A/W 2012

We've always had a penchant for (read: obsession with) bird jewellery and it's always featured heavily on our website (see: Bird is the Word collection).  So, when we saw our favourite feathered variety - owls - were having a bit of a moment on the catwalk (thank you, Burberry) for A/W 2012, well we were *elated*.

So elated, in fact, that we had to get in on the act and throw together a collection full of owl-y goodness, *twit-too*.  Here's our faves:

This Oversized Acrylic Owl Pendant, £12, is probably our most kitsch piece of the collection.  With its statement, acrylic good looks this necklace is the ultimate in quirky jewellery.



Our Owl Charm Bracelet, £10, is a little more sophisticated with its antique gold and crystal multi-charms - it could easily become our go-to piece this season!


Another bright necklace offering, this time in the form of our enamel Owl Heart Necklace, £8, available in pink, blue or yellow (or like some of our customers - one in each colour).  We got funky covered!

DIY Nails x Chelsea Doll - A/W 2012

Jeez, Louise!  We're really spoiling you lot this week.  Another exciting collection goes live today - something a li'l different - a new direction, if you will. 

Yes, today we unveil the latest goodies to hit the site, in the form of a collaboration with DIY Nails - the upcoming, super-cool, all-round amazing nail brand.  A range of nail decals will be available on our website from today, along with a few exclusive, limited edition designs.  We don't 'alf spoil you!

Oh, and if you're wondering what a decal is exactly - just think of it as a really easy and effective alternative to nail art.  Here's a quick guide to application:

1) Prepare nail and wait for any nail polish to dry
2) Cut around desired shape as closely to the image as possible
3) Dip in water until the decal slides off
4) Place decal on your nail
5) Make sure there is no water on the nail and secure with a clear topcoat (Seche Vite is the best!), wait to dry and you're set!

If you need more encouragement, check out this video tutorial from Tammy (the genius behind DIY Nails).  Here's a quick peek at the Chelsea Doll exclusives:

Crown and Glory - A/W 2012

We're super delighted to introduce the latest collection to drop at Chelsea Doll towers.  Excesses of glitter, floral crowns, stars and moustache bandeaus (all handmade, we hasten to add) - *Rolf Harris voice* can you tell what it is yet? 

Of course, it's the one, the only, Crown and Glory hair accessories.  We've admired the brand for what seems like aaaaaages, but to actually feature a selection of their fantastic headpieces, well we could squeal with excitement!   We defy anyone not to love our latest arrivals!  We've put together a little Crown and Glory lust list (we have a feeling these will be a major part of our personal accessory collection for A/W), to give you an overview of the hot, new collection. 

First up is the Whole Lotta Rosie Headband, £20 - a gorgeous colourway and a great piece to work winter florals.  We think it's the perfect way to rock the feminine grunge look this season.




This Loverdose Glitter Heart Bandeau, £12, caught our eye as soon as we opened the package.  Lush, bright red glitter hearts which just screech out to be seen this party season!

We've most definitely saved the best 'til last (our love of all things quirky literally over-riding everything else).  Ladies and gentlemen, we give you The Tachinator, £10!  An amazing black and silver glitter moustache bandeau - we can't wait to unleash it!

This season the cross is reigning supreme.  Another nod to the nineties, and an important component of the goth trend, crosses in any guise are a must-have.  Our new collection - Cross My Heart - covers every corner of the cross trend, from the subtle to the in-ya-face, over-sized! Our motto: if in doubt, add a cross!  Here's a selection of our faves:


Nox Cross Drop Armlet
Candy Cross Drop Stud Earrings
Ari Cross Necklace
Jas Oversized Cross Drop Earring

The Name Necklace!

Our Acrylic Art collection is full of wonderfully unique acrylic jewellery lust, but perhaps none are as unique as this darling, which launched on our site recently - The Name Necklace! (£13). 

Probably one of the coolest and most kitsch ways to make a statement, our Name Necklace! is available in a variety of eye-catching colours, three different font-styles and with a choice of two lengths.  You can customise your name, your way! 




We've been inundated with requests - some conventional names, some funky slogans and other, random wording, the meaning of which we have no idea!  But that's the beauty of The Name Necklace! - you can have any wording you like!

Acrylic Art - Reloaded!

Our Acrylic Art collection has always proved a popular choice for zany, wacky jewellery lovers and now we're pleased to say it's got even more WILD!  We've constructed some jaw-dropping pieces, designed to get the wearer noticed.

So, what's in this extreme range of jewellery, we hear you ask.  Well, come hither our crazy acrylic fans for we have something insane to show you...

What say you to a primary-coloured, acrylic, bicycle plate necklace, in the form of this I Want to Ride My Bicycle piece (£13)?





Or, perhaps a skull-based acrylic necklace?  Take a look at our Skullz plate (£16).  We heard ya - WOW!



We're feeling a lot of love for this Aztec Triangles Necklace (£12).  The colours are gorgeous and Aztec is HUGE this season!


  

We're also smitten with this Pineapple Necklace (£12) and its ability to brighten up (read: seek attention) the most boring of outfits - a proper statement piece.



And, on the subject of attention-seeking, what do you make of this edgy, in-ya-face, hardcore, all-round CRAZY handcuffs necklace?  Yes, our You're Nicked Handcuffs Necklace (£15) wasn't made for the shrinking violets among us!  A step too far?
