I love ostentatious jewellery, it's so far removed from my quiet personality. I think it really helps to show my creative side, the side that loves colour, feminine things and anything happy. This piece of jewellery was purchased in 2008 from a department store in Tokyo. After returning to Ginza to attempt the queue at LADURÉE for the third and final time, I promtly gave up when I saw the line curl around and around the third floor.
As we walked back to our hotel, we visited another department store, the name of which escapes me now. Inside, I found this cute little macaron necklace. It was like my consolation for not having tried a real one. It's strawberry, pink, sparkly goodness is now forever etched in my trinket box.
