More often than not, jewellery invokes memories and reminds the wearer about certain times in their lives. Whether it’s an engagement/wedding ring reminding some of the happy times, or a necklace worn in remembrance, many simple trinkets have stories behind it.
Now my memories are not really about a piece of jewellery as such, but more about a shop. Metallic Mermaid in Plettenberg Bay is that shop. Just thinking about it now takes me back to when I was much younger, saving up all my hard earned pocket money so that when Decemeber holidays rolled around I could go and buy beautiful treasures.
This shop went a long way to fueling my passion for jewellery as when you walk in there is just jewellery EVERYWHERE! Reminds me a little of a scratch patch (remember those?!) as you had to look between all sorts of necklaces and chains and just.. things.. in order to find the perfect purchase.
I was in Plett again these holidays and found some wonderful pieces that need to be shared:
I found that when I went this year however that their was much more ‘cheapie’ things and very clunky jewellery that didn’t appeal to me at all but after spending some time searching through everything, there are some gorgeous bargains to be had. If you want to find out more, hop over here.
