Lucky Sarah has stowed away on a trip to Edinburgh with a couple of bilge rats today so I am left holding the fort and waiting for my postcard!
I am like 70% offended that nobody has had the decency to inform me about the legend that is Screamin' Jay Hawkins. He actually wrote the song I Put A Spell On You and this live version is fucking incredible! Check out the crazy eyes. And the tusks. 
Oh yeah, back to business. We have some new bracelets in the shop today made from vintage charms, crystals, bells and amazing glittery gold star buttons we bought in Paris.

I had scallops last night

Hello chaps! Not much on the jewellery front today I'm afraid; it's that bastard Evola's fault, he kept us up all night rifling through our bins again! Can't blame him really, we're pretty cool cats and it is his birthday after all. To mark the occasion here is another version of the fantastic Paddy P's Testiclates
Until recently we had never fully appreciated the true majesty and importance of Ganesh in our lives, turns out he's the Lord of success and destroyer of selfishness, vanity and pride. Ganesh's head symbolizes the Atman or the soul, which is the ultimate supreme reality of human existence, and his human body signifies Maya or the earthly existence of human beings. The elephant head denotes wisdom and its trunk represents Om, the sound symbol of cosmic reality and he is the personification of material universe in all its various magnificent manifestations.
Overall he is my second favourite elephant (obviously first place goes to John)
