A Little Self Indulgence....

As some of you would be aware, there has been very little room in my life for self indulgence of late, but recently I found something that I 'just had to have'. I was down at the Foster market recently and a lady came into our stand wearing a beautiful wooden tree pendant necklace that I told her I just had to have!

I know, you're thinking, 'but Leisa isn't even much of a jewellry gal', and of course you'd be right, but I'm finding that I'm being drawn to laser cut pendants and brooches and stuff. I think I must be getting old. Anyway, I just had to share my experience because apart from the beautiful necklace I now own, look at this amazing packaging that it came in.


Yes it was an 'Elk' necklace, so perhaps I shouldn't have been surprised.




And Tadaaa! Here it is. What do you think?

When I wore this necklace I had many comments about it, and 2 of those were from men. Mmm, apparently I'm not the only one who has good taste! Perhaps I will wear mine to the Foster market that is on again this Sunday.
Thanks Annie for allowing me to have a beautiful necklace just like yours......Annie can often be found helping out at the Gecko Studio Gallery in Fish Creek.

  1. OMG - I just commented on the EXACT SAME NECKLACE ( in green ) on flickr - this is TOO WEIRD !

    And I wanted one. bad.
    Now I know where to get one ... but the question is - am I 'necky' enough to pull it off ?

    But .. LOVE IT ... will link back in a minnie and show you my flickr-friends' version..

  3. Oh Leanne I so tossed up between the green and the red one! I thought the green would be perfect for Mookah, but I'm turning into a bit of a red person as I age. You don't need to be 'necky' to wear one as it has a long leather chain. I wear mine between the boobs...sorry, don't know how else to explain?

  7. It's absolutely beautiful Leisa. Elk stuff is amazing. Good on you for buying something for yourself.

  8. I'm an Elk collector Leisa - such beautiful jewellery. Beware, if you wear perfume don't spray it onto your body when wearing as it does tinge the timber. I would say Elk fetches far more comments than other jewellery I own (diamonds/aquamarine). I think that's great and says a lot for people with an eye for design and style.
