Beautiful Bespoke by Anna Lou of London

Good afternoon beauties!
Apologies for the little lapse in posting over the last 10 days or so. I have been well and truly tied up in the act of moving house but I'm now happy to report that the ferrets and I are now fully installed in our new home and a much more regular service can now be resumed. I'm planning a little post about the move and perhaps even a new room tour once I've got my storage all figured out so keep an eye out for that!

Today's post is a bit special. I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely ladies from Anna Lou of London recently at the Handpicked Media LFW Suite at One Aldwych, where they were showcasing a huge range of their new styles. In particular, their new bespoke range of personalised pieces. You can now create a completely unique piece of jewellery which has extra special meaning for yourself or for someone you love. 

There were so many styles on display with endless possibilities! They have everything from the iconic Sex and the City 'Carrie' style name necklace to monogrammed items to Zodiac, Arabic and Chinese pieces. They also have a range of engraved bracelets, necklaces and dogtags as well as rings and bridal pieces, all of which are available in Silver, Gold or Rose Gold. 

When given the opportunity to design my very own one of a kind piece emblazoned with whatever I wanted I must admit I got a bit giddy! Really though, I was only going to pick one thing. Regular followers of my blog and Instagam will already know which two little chaps mean more to me than anything else in this world? It's THESE two....

I could have chosen my initials, my blog name or any other wording I could have thought of but, of course, I went with my beloved fur-kids! I chose a cute little dog tag, in rose gold, engraved with the names of Pedro and Jasper either side. I think this piece officially makes me a Crazy Ferret Lady! 

I am in love with this necklace. It's such a simple design and a great conversation starter! It is rose gold-plated sterling silver on a ball chain which can come in any length of your choosing. I love that it's an edgy, military-style design but at the same time elegant and feminine. 

The RRP for this piece is £58 on the Anna Lou of London website (direct link) and you can browse the full collection at

These items make the perfect gift or keepsake and I'm guessing Anna will be extremely busy in the run up to Christmas this year! A huge thank you to Anna and Kate for showing me the range and for the general chatter and giggles at the event. I adore this piece and will treasure it. 

Do you go potty for personalised jewellery?? What style and engraving would you have?? Will you be putting one of these pieces on your Christmas list this year??
