Marine Wildlife Inspired Jewelry

I was doing some online browsing last night (mainly because my sister asked me to find some stuff for her guinea pigs) and somehow, from Etsy, I moved onto eBay and somehow or other, I ended up on!

I know, right? It's almost Christmas and retailers are pushing ads under our fingers like moms pushing veggies into their kids' mouths. I'm not much of a jewelery gal myself (I only wear my wedding and engagement rings and a thin necklace with a diamond pendant that my late dad bought for my 17th birthday) but I do appreciate looking at pretty things.

This new jewelry designer Guy Harvey works mainly with precious metals and gemstones and his designs are inspired by his family and his love for the sea. Don't you just love it when you see someone's passion exude from his designs? Not only does he manage to capture the beautiful wildlife in their habitat ONTO his designs, percentage of Guy Harvey Jewelry sales will be donated to The Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation, a non-profit organization that promotes the conservation of our oceans and nurtures the next generation of marine scientists and guardians of our seas.

If you know anyone obsessed with marine wildlife, this may be the perfect Christmas gift for them! :)

Christmas Decoration Idea

Although I don't celebrate Christmas, I do love looking at Christmas decorations. There's just something about lights and Christmas colours that just remind me of a time when I used to celebrate Christmas at my late grandma's and my late uncle Joshua's. My late uncle Joshua was amazing with Christmas decorations. There are like 4 huge trees in his house with different themes! And since the family is pretty extended, there are mountains of Christmas presents under each tree which makes it even more exciting to look at.

Wow, I haven't gone back to Kuching to celebrate Christmas with my uncles and aunts and cousins there in a veeery long time. Yet whenever I see Christmas decorations, they are never far from my mind.

Anyways, if you're bored of your annual Christmas decorations, or having a theme for your Christmas tree and don't know what to do with the rest of the ornaments, probably you can show them off this way!

You don't need even need glue. You just need to find a shadow box or deep frame for this! I know that the RIBBA frame from IKEA is extra deep. It has a 4.5cm depth. If your ornaments don't fit in, any other Christmas decoration will do. Perhaps you want to put in a wreath instead? Or fill it up with candy cane? The options are ENDLESS! And there's nothing like a DIY project that will impress your guests when they come over!

Thanks to 52 Mantels for this wonderful idea! Check out how her nursery turned up!

So easy and so beautiful! Try it yourself!
