Monday night was a special night to treat yo'self. A blossoming jewellery label, Cleopatra's Bling, hosted a VIP sale for their Melbourne based fans. The pieces are luxurious at the same time that they are fun, hence the name Cleopatra's Bling - it's so fitting. You feel like a queen who has a touch of something wild & free to her personality & regal style. A winning combination for the modern woman, nay?
We did our best to carry on conversations as we inspected the many & varied beauties strewn carefully across the table. This was tricky, however, as it was like a bunch of kids in a candy store, oohing & aahhhing over the collection of goodies. Most of the chatter was jewellery-related & we had a great time identifying the different stones & their meanings.
Pictured above is the hand of Cleopatra's Bling mastermind, Olivia. And that beauty you spot on my finger is a turquoise number. I went nuts for these ones. I'm a bit of a turquoise fan.
And here is Sally trying her hand at a cluster ring number with amethyst as its starring stone.
And don't worry, fellas. Cleopatra's Bling has not forgotten you! Some cufflinks for the gentlemen . . .
The designer & her gorgeous mama.
This guy . . . well I couldn't not include him & his amazing artwork! Working away after hours to complete this magical scene for a thai restaurant we passed on our way home. I had to take a photo of another artist at work. Clearly the inspiration was in the air that night ;-)
