WIN! Bag yourself a surprise at Eclectic Eccentricity
Starting out as merely Lucy Crick’s weekend hobby, Eclectic Eccentricity has blossomed into a hugely popular and beautiful jewellery label. In the beginning, Lucy trawled antique shops and markets for the vintage treats we all wish to find for ourselves and combined them with other stunning treasures she found which had been hidden away for years. Dedicating all her time to designing and creating new pieces, this label is a genuine example of hard work and devotion to something loved. After bursting onto the fashion scene, EE is now featured in such magazines as Marie Claire, Vogue and Grazia and has a celebrity fan base with the likes of Eliza Doolittle and Paloma Faith. How exciting!
The idea behind each intricate piece reinforces a story, and with such effort and detail going into each trinklet, a new story is made with every item. Individual stories for each piece are available at the click of a button and this is what makes Eclectic Eccentricity so special. The dozen-strong and oh-so-delightful team is what completes this label, ensuring that piece is everything you could possibly want and that you get the best service possible.
As for the selection of jewellery available, it is impossible to pick a favourite. From pocket watches, starting at £16, to vintage hair combs (the Persephone Vintage Hair Comb at £10.75 is absolutely gorgeous), EE’s sheer elegance and beauty is evident in every single item. Other special picks from us are the ‘Falling for You’ earrings from the EE Bridal range (£13.50), the ‘For Your Eyes Only’ Locket Necklace (£10.00 and, might we add, an absolute bargain!) and the whole range of friendship bracelets (because we couldn’t just decide on one), all priced at £13.50 or £15.00.
Having sneaked a peek at the Spring/Summer ’12 lookbook, EE are making jewellery fun. Inspired by all things wild and celestial, there is a touch of spring love and magic in the new pieces with bees, squirrels and flowers. The whole collection is simply adorable.
It isn’t even possible to put into words how cute and quirky this label really is. To make it even better, the team at EE that they have said that every reader from The Upcoming that befriends them on Facebook could be in with the chance of winning a little surprise. All you have to do is become a fan of them on Facebook and state your favourite piece from their collection (you can always add why too!). This competition will run until 21 February and the two runners up will get themselves a free canvas bag. So what are you waiting for!
