Ice Cream Sundaes and Surprises
I’ll tell you now, my Blogging best friends and I are very lucky ladies. Very lucky ladies indeed. Last weekend, my little group of internet dwelling, perfect-pose striking friends and I (we somewhat piss-takingly call ourselves ‘Five’) were were most kindly invited for afternoon treats with an equally charming little lady named Clarice Price-Thomas who creates beautiful jewellery with her own fair hands. The invitation read: Secret gifting and Sundaes. We were all in.
So what exactly did we get up to? Well, Clarice came up with an idea whereby each of us were given one of the friends to choose a ring to secretly gift to. I was delighted to be given Kristabel to choose for as I knew right away which of Clarice’s creations I could see her making a beeline towards. You’ll have to keep an eye on her blog to see what I chose! I was lucky enough to have Carrie as my ring-barer and she couldn’t have picked better than the Umbra ring in silver. It’s quite a luxury to have a ring to add to my collection that doesn’t need throwing out after a couple of weeks of wear!
Inspired by clock components created by her Father, a horologist and using his original machines and techniques to craft tiny charms, Clarice creates unique, quality pieces with a bit of a story to tell! I think they look like a modern nod to the art deco era, which is fitting considering the retro-inspired surroundings of the Fortnum and Mason ice cream parlour which, if you hadn’t already been motivated to book yourself in to, is well worth a visit!
Thank you so much Clarice Price-Thomas for such gorgeous gifts (and that raspberry sorbet coup went down rather well too!)
