Since the first caveman streaked his face with yellow cave-paint and strung sparkly pebbles around his neck, people have been blinging themselves out with little bits of shiny stuff. Rather than scour the beach for the prettiest pebbles, kit yourself out with a sterling-silver personalised name necklace for R300 from Janine Binneman Jewellery Designs.
With winter on its last legs, there’s no longer any reason to cover up your neck with bulky scarves and snoods, no matter how fashionable they might be; though it’s understandable that after three months of covering up, your neck could feel rather exposed. Rather than invest in a whole new wardrobe of thinner scarves, Janine Binneman offers the perfect solutions for necks that need a bit of close companionship.
With some serious know-how and experience with designing decorations for wrists, necks and ears all over the country, the master of elegant bling aims to inspire and excite. A range of designs designed to speak to your personality culminates in the sterling-silver necklace that features your name in bright and shiny letters. High-quality materials and a touch of that something special that says mine, the necklace is a perfect addition to any jewellery collection.
Of course, seeing as it’s personalised with whatever name you want, you can use it as a more stylish and elegant name-tag than the ones they give out at conferences. If you’re the adventurous type that usually writes a different name on those, like Hi, My name is Johnny Scoundrel when your name is actually Layla, there’s nothing to say you need to adorn your neck with your birth name. According to some, a personalised bit of sparkly is also a better birthday gift than scented candles.
Shiny Fact: The most expensive brand of jewellery available on the market today is made of melted-down rhodium and greasy spoons. Often taking odd shapes, the range includes jelly-bean bracelets and necklace pendants shaped as tents
