When it comes to leather handbags I simply love handmade unique bags that make a style statement. The smell of leather, the colours and styles. When we get a delivery from one of our handbag designers and each of the bags are wrapped individually I am like a kid at Xmas time, ripping at the paper to see what is inside!
When Coco Barclay Skirt bagsfirst arrived in our Bo'ness shop, I just had to have the Clutch My Skirt in fucshia and bought it before it even reached the shelves! I love the colour and style of the bag and I get loads of compliments on it when ever I use it. It has been to weddings, parties and even to the pub! My favourite designer leather handbag goes with anything and is great to add a splash of colour.
Coco Barclay works in the highest quality, ethically sourced materials and her designs are fun, stylish and practical too. Coco has brought together a group of British craftspeople to produce her designs, people who do what they do because they love it - and it shows.
One designer leather handbag I would love to own (but need to save some pennies first!) would be the Ameliafrom Steven Harkin. I love the structure of this handmade bag and it would look fantatsic dressed with jeans (or my new maxi dress!) for a day out with the girls.
Steven Harkin has been an artist, designer, maker and producer of leather accessories for some 25 years. He has gained international recognition for his creative style and his handbags are loved by public and private collectors. The Kylie clutch bag was named after Kylie Minogue who owns it in red patent leather.
I love the soft suede inside this bag and the selection of colours you can choose from, you could have one to match every outfit!
A leather handbag is one of the most important (and useful) accessories you own, so why not make a statement with yours?
As this is my first ever blog, I thought I should introduce myself. My name is Danielle and I am lucky enough to have one of the biggest jewellery boxes a girl could want! Two whole jewellery shops, one in Edinburgh and one in Bo'ness! My Mum and Dad (Val and Kevin) own Pebbles and since October 2009 I have been working with them.
This is not the first time I have worked with jewellery or indeed for my family, I have been involved with the manufacturing of jewellery (I am not creative enough to ever design anything!) from the casting to polishing the finished product, I have had a go at it all. Although I enjoyed being involved in making beautiful pieces I must admit I would much rather be here in the shop selling (and trying on) designer jewellery to our wonderful customers!
I am a lover all things that sparkle, crystal or diamonds but I can also be found wearing stylish and unusual designer pieces. I love them all. I guess I am a little magpie when it comes to jewellery. I have a very varied jewellery box (at home), from fashion jewellery to fine gold with diamonds you will find them all. Simple and elegant to statement and bold depending on what takes my mood at that particular time.
Take a look at some of my favourite pieces that can be found at Pebbles -
Beautiful rose gold and diamond 'Starburst' ring from Jacob Issacharoff. I love the 3D effect of this ring, it looks as though it is 'bursting' from your finger. The soft rose gold makes this ring unusual and if I was to treat myself to one thing at the moment this would be it!
I love Tina Lilienthal's Dead Cute Jewellery range and this skull necklace has to be one of the best. Perfect for Summer, an eye catcher! It was difficult to choose between this and Tina's black cherry necklace. I have the black cherry and I wear it with everything! The skull with a butterfly is the next piece I would love to have.
Sphere Of Life is one range that I can take credit for! I was the one that discovered this great range and it has quickly became one of our best sellers. I love the simplicity and the little names that each piece is given. This one is Bring Me Spring and sums up how we are all feeling at the moment.
I love handbags aswell (don't we all?), I have the clutch version of this bag in beautiful bright fucshia pink. I bought it before it even made it to the shelves! I take it on nights out and always get admiring comments from my friends. I sometimes use it when I have a pair of jeans on for an instand lift to my outfit as well.
Pebbles are really excited and proud to be Scotland's stockists of Bjorg jewellery. Bjorg's jewellery has been getting loads of attention from the worlds jewellery press and is quickly developing a celebrity following. I love the sentiment of this necklace 'Be yourself - everyone else is taken'.
I have enjoyed writing my first ever blog and I hope you have enjoyed reading it! Stay tuned for more of my favourites, info about our designers and my opinions on all things jewellery and accessories.
