Sneek Peek

Two parcels full of gorgeous new pieces have just arrived at my desk! Both lots of items are from two brand new designers, Sofa City Sweethearts and Hip Hop Candy and I can't say how excited I am to have them on board.

Below is a little sneeky look at some of their pieces, which I will be adding to the site over the next couple of days.

Raising money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we want to do our part! To help raise money we have created a number of limited edition pieces, of which 50% of the proceeds will be donated to Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

We have also picked out some pink pieces from Ji Ji Kiki and a portion of the proceeds from these will be donated. We have put the pink ribbon and a little bit of information of each of the pieces.

Below are the limited edition items of which 50% will be donated-not only will you be getting something only a few other people will own you'll also be helping us raise money to find a cure for cancer. And if that doesn't give you a fuzzy feeling inside we don't know what will, so get shopping and thank you!

'Vintage Rose' Limited edition bead bracelet £12.00

Pink and Silver drop earrings £8.50

We have just added a new bar to the bottom of the website which allows you to interact with us on Facebook and Twitter without having to open a new window!

The toolbar also has a very useful function which allows you to translate the website into your own language, which we hope will be a useful feature for our non-English speaking customers.

Video review

One of our lovely customers has done a little video review of some of our vintage jewellery products, including the long leaf earrings, chrysanthemum ring and antique brass swallow necklace.

The gorgeous Katherine usually reviews make-up and beauty products, so this was a lovely surprise to find that she'd taken the time to review some of our jewellery as well.
You can watch the video by clicking on the link below. Katherine is also on Twitter, username @wildkatmakeup


Thank you so much to Katherine for her lovely review, if you do review or feature Ji Ji Kiki anywhere let us know and we'll blog about it!

We are very excited as the postman brought a package yesterday filled with some super cute, kawaii jewellery!

We are exclusive UK stockists for Komodokat and the pieces are sure to sell out very quickly.
