→ Indie Spotlight: Cocopomme Jewellery

How long have you been doin' what you do?
Cocopomme all started about 2 years ago, although I've been making jewellery for years!

What made you want to open up shop?
I love making jewellery and I made so much I thought it would be a good idea to open up an online shop. The website launched in August 2013 and since then I have had such an amazing response. I literally cannot wipe the grin off my face when I get feedback about the jewellery!

How did you come up with your shop name?
Mmm cocopomme!!! Well I make this absolutely wicked desert which is like an upside down apple pie with chocolate sauce and a bit of orange I call it cocopomme. What better name to name my shop after than something so delicious and something I make about once a week :)

What is your all time favorite piece you've made?
My all time face piece is the sherbet lolly necklace. I LOVE it, I just think it looks so realistic, whenever I step out wearing it everyone always comments on how different it is.

If you could have another talent, what would it be?
I've always wanted to be able to sew! I set myself a new years resolution that I would make a pinafore dress this year. There's a TV show on called The Great British Sewing Bee and every time I watch it i get a pang of guilt that I haven't started it yet! But.... Every time I go to drag out the sewing machine I seem to get my jewellery kit out instead. I guess thats not a bad thing!

Do you prefer to listen to or watch something while you work?
Definitely listen to music, I cant watch anything whilst i work its way too distracting. I seem to get into a rhythm with music on.

If you could be any fictional character, who would you be?
I always wanted to be Bubbles from the Power Puff Girls, she could blow ice from her mouth to make ice rinks in the house! That would be pretty cool.

What inspires you?
I get inspired every time I go into a sweet shop, like one of those traditional sweet shops with the jars on the walls and the scales to weigh out 100grams of delicious goodness. I also get inspired from my friends. Friends are the best inspiration anyone could have!

What is your favorite medium to work with?
I love working with fimo, it's so nice to work with and really relaxing. It's amazing what can be created from that one little block.

Any advise on how or where to start a business or shop?
My advise would be to just do it!!! Whatever you do, whatever your passion, it's so easy to set up and so rewarding!! There's nothing better than people wanting to buy something you have made and put your energy into!

→ Review: Cocopomme Jewellery*

Several weeks ago, I was contacted by the lovely Kate of Cocopomme to review a couple of their jewellery pieces and I could not wait to get my hands on hem!

Cocopomme is a British jewellery company born out of a passion for jewellery, accessorizing and all things fun and fabulous. Each piece in all of the collections are unique and handcrafted in Britain made with love. From nostalgic memories, to everything we love now. Each piece is about being unique, expressing yourself and standing out in a crowd.

Cocopomme offers a wide range of food, sweets and biscuits themed jewellery pieces including rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings. From Jammie Dodgers, Oreos, baked beans on toast, lollies, party rings, love hearts, bourbon biscuits and anything foodie and delicious you can think of.

Spoiler alert: I adore these necklaces.

Strawberry Necklace (£8.00)
Feeling fruity! This classic strawb necklace is perfect for a cute and fun look. Featuring a realistic strawberry on a delicate chain for a juicy look.

Pendant - 5cm; Necklace – 22cm

This necklace looks like a gummy strawberry! It's great when I want to add a bit more color to my outfit, plus it's perfect for spring. I think the one tiny thing I would change is not adding a jump ring to the top of the pendant cos the strawberry doesn't always lie flat, but it's a super easy fix if it becomes bothersome. It's an awesome necklace either way!

→Overall Grade: A

Terry's Chocolate Orange Necklace (£8.00)
There's a segment for everyone now with this deliciously chocolatey chocolate orange necklace for a fully original look! Featuring a very chocolate orange segment on a delicate chain.

Pendant – 6cm; Necklace – 21.5cm

I think this might be one of my favorite necklaces. Seriously. Terry's Chocolate Oranges are like my favorite candy and Kate does an amazing job replicating the chocolate segments! I can't find anything wrong with this one. It looks so much like the real thing!

→ Overall Grade: A+

Cocopomme is a fantastic handmade jewellery company that I think everyone should check out. All of their pieces are totally adorable... Plus, they offer worldwide shipping (and free shipping within the UK)!
A few of my favorites are the Kiwi Gateaux Ring, Liquorice All Sorts Charm Bracelet (featured in the top picture), Beans on Toast Necklace, and Jammie Dodger Pearl Necklace.

→ New Product: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette

This post contains affiliate links.

Okay, technically this is a rerelease, but it's SUPER EXCITING nonetheless! During the holiday 2013 season, Hourglass came out with their Ambient Lighting Palette and it sold out pretty darn quickly. Sephora just relaunched the product so if you missed it the first time, you have another chance to grab one. I know that it's pricey ($58.00), but it's totally worth it.

What do you think? Buy it here!
