My glamorous, fabulous friend Renee Blackwell, bead queen and designer, has started a blog.
Renee travels all over the world to collect her amazing stones and beads and her blog "Adornments of the Soul" is a spicy melange of travel, fashion, Renee's beautiful bush sanctuary and interesting scientific facts about Australian gemstones amongst other things!
I have one of Renee's rings like the green one in the first photo. It is HUGE, glittery and I wasn't sure if the daggy/country/mum/potter lifestyle I lead could support such a glamorous object, but Renne said "OH! Just wear it shopping!" (in her lovely American accent) and I have. So now you may glimpse absolute glamour on one finger of a harried looking person with a basket full of carrots and a pair of blundstones if you are ever shopping at my local supermarket.
