Wouldn’t You Though?
These gorgeous Mexican bangles and cuffs would make – just saying, Mr C – the perfect Christmas present.
Casita Bonita, which imports the most beautiful things from Mexico, has a great selection of jewellery ranging from the happily affordable to the ‘oh-you-shouldn’t-have’ – and they’re not only gorgeous, they’re very different to pieces you’ll see elsewhere.
I can’t choose between the swirly, more-open bangles with the large stones and the cuffs with the inlay or the cuffs with the gemstones. I do like the plain silver cuffs a lot, too, though. Decisions, decisions…
Casita Bonita has a real commitment to sourcing their products fairly in Mexico, dealing directly with artists and craftspeople over there, so not only is their jewellery beautiful but also ethically traded – and hand-picked by people who really, really know their stuff. They’ve also got lots of homewares and gifts, which are gorgeous, but the jewellery completely caught my eye when I popped in.
I’m so taken with these, and I’m not even really a bracelet sort of person usually – I’d love to say I have gorgeous willowy wrists that would show them off perfectly, but, well, that wouldn’t actually be true…. *sigh* Think that’s why something a bit chunkier – er, I mean, more substantial – appeals.
So, if your Christmas list is looking a little lean, one of these lovelies would make the perfect pressie – or if you need a little treat for yourself, even, to complement that party-season little black dress, then they’re a cracking choice.
