Mental Embellisher

What a great name for this shop which features original jewellery made by Ann here in France (but a lot further North than me) and such brilliant descriptions for her items that it’s worth a visit to etsy to read them as well as to lust after the jewellery.  Her style is steampunk and a bit Gothic and a bit French, the combination of which makes for some really interesting  pieces and, also, for some light-hearted ones.  Father Ted fans are well catered for!

 Vintage typewriter keys feature frequently in Ann’s  jewellery designs and, whereas sometimes she makes use of the  original letter or symbol within the key, she often  uses a bit of artistic licence in order to create a piece of themed jewellery or something more personal.  ‘Bitch’ and ‘Stud’ anybody?

Coincidentally, having just posted ‘Let’s Hear It for the Boys’ where I bemoan the lack of affordable yet exciting  gifts for men, I noticed that the Mental Embellisher could certainly help out with this dilemma and, if your man (or boy) has a sense of humour, I’m sure he wouldn’t be disappointed with a gift  from this shop.

    Anna – I can just see you both wearing the matching ‘bitch’ and ‘stud’ pendants. That would make my Christmas anyway 🙂
