Thrift Inspiration, Doing it Hermes Style!!

I've always loved enamel jewellery and now I'm collecting costume jewellery I was keen to get an enamel bangle.


This Hermes one is currently on ebay-isn't it gorgeous!! But totally out of my price range!!



I found this gorgeous enamel bangle for only £1.50 at the boot sale-its in gorgeous condition and the colours are perfect for summer too!



What sort of bangles will you be in this summer?

I love enamel as well!! Wish I could find a chunky enamel ring with a great floral design -- I have my eyes out for that. Your bracelet is lovely ;)

The Hermes bracelet is seriously To. Die. For. And out of my price range as well unfort ;)

Never mind, I really like the thrifted replacement of yours and an enamel bracelet that I found for me at the markets :)

Sharon Rose said...

Hi ladies-thanks so much for the lovely comments!!

Belle de Ville said...

While I like the Hermes enamel bangles, especially when groups of them are worn together, I think that your rose bangle is really sweet. It was and awesome buy!

Couture Carrie said...

Amazing finds, darling! I am really smitten with that first bangle!

I am wearing piles of gold bangles this summer :)

Winnie said...

I love bangles but they annoy me too much and always have to come off after a while. I prefer simple bangles.

Pamela said...

£1.50, what a bargain, it's great when you find something gorgeous for such little money. That's why i love charity shops! I really need to get myself to a car boot sale...

Siljesfashion said...

I love bangles, really cant get enough enemal bangles. Although I love Hermes, yours is really a Great bargain!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi everyone-such lovely comments, thanks to you all!

Anusha said...

Such a fantastic bangle! I love enamel jewelry. I'm hoping to find a perfect piece soon.

I'm a total bangle girl, being from South Asia. ^__^ The trend in India now seems to be loads of skinny little metallic and colored bangles on one wrist to match the outfit worn, so I'm trying to do that whenever I go out. I think it's a fabulous look.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Anusha-I agree, bangles are a lovely trend, I'm going to try and thrift some more!!

Anusha said...

Sharon, if you haven't already you should check out all the fab Indian stores you have in London. Most Indian and Pakistani stores sell cheap, colored bangles in either metal or plastic that look really, really pretty. I wish we had more Indian stores here. Nothing quite like bangles from that part of the world.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Anusha-fabulous idea, I have a lot locally too, thanks!!

Karen said...

Oh no you di'int!!!! That Hermes is making me seeeeeeeethe with envy, and that's not good for my image!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Karen-mine isn't Hermes, more's the pity,LOL!!

J. said...

I love enameled bangles too, but I wear all kinds really. Yours is really nice (but so is the Hermes of course ;)
