Is it as beautiful in RL as it looks on the website? Really love a particular necklace but don't want to drive all the way to a stockist to see it, shall I risk it and just buy online?

They are exquisitely detailed.

I have the gold bee, silver "Mr & Mrs Bird" on a hoop and for Christmas I got a one-off Trunk Show piece <squee>

bigkidsdidit Fri 18-Jan-13 15:05:27

yes, it is wonderful in rl

I'm hoping to get another piece this year. I follow him on facebook, he puts new pieces up all the time and they are all lovely smile

Yes - it is lovely - I have the baby bee and the shrimp and both are beautifully detailed.

MaureenShit Fri 18-Jan-13 16:18:22

Don't call them pieces you NOBBERS

I've got a shrimp, though it is missing at the moment - I think it's lovely, though it was smaller than I has expected!

tomverlaine Fri 18-Jan-13 16:30:58

yes- i love my bee it is very tactile

I love the silver, think the gold plated stuff looks like £5 tat from Topshop. I actually returned a plated necklace because the plating wasn't even and it looked so cheap.

It is smaller than I expected too Amber - have you seen the Goring shrimp he does IRL?

Shouldn't that be KNOBBER Maureen? wink

They are very 'copied' though. Lots of fakes around.

notasgreenasiamcabbagelooking Fri 18-Jan-13 16:50:52

I agree about the gold plated stuff. I have the posy heart but the plating is very thin and you really have to look after it. I still love it though.

MaureenShit Fri 18-Jan-13 16:53:25

Oh I love the gold. Silver very mum cliche

MaureenShit Fri 18-Jan-13 16:53:46

Btw. Dragonfly shit with knitwear

noddyholder Fri 18-Jan-13 16:56:50

I prefer gold too. Kirstin ash jewellery lovely for summer too.

I much prefer the gold.

noddyholder Fri 18-Jan-13 16:59:46

I gotthis for xmas in gold bargain and washed in machine plus dryer by mistake and it still looks the same! All those bees and birds etc are in primark opia

MaureenShit Fri 18-Jan-13 17:00:35

I love

redmayneslips Fri 18-Jan-13 17:01:19

I love the gold too and have the bird in a hoop with ruby eyes and it is much admired whenever I wear it. it was smaller and the chain much finer than i had expected, but i still love it. Don't like the silver - looks cheaper by far

noddyholder Fri 18-Jan-13 17:01:44

I'll send you friends shop can get for 5

Dammit Noddy I always like the things you post

I've got the bee, not the normal one the one that looks like its flying towards you I love it but it catches and snags on every bloody thing

It's ruined numerous tops

noddyholder Fri 18-Jan-13 17:04:27

My dp got me stocking with it in! Everyone likes it I have worn every day Looks a lot more than a tenner

Procrastinating Fri 18-Jan-13 17:04:55

I have an owl and I wasn't impressed at all. It is tiny and the silver was discoloured when I got it. It looks much cheaper than it was.

MaureenShit Fri 18-Jan-13 17:05:18

Shit !!! Just bought !!

noddyholder Fri 18-Jan-13 17:06:23

Never mind! Well worth every penny.

knitknack Fri 18-Jan-13 17:12:56

I love the gold! DH got me the hummingbird for Christmas smile

Whoops - double post.

Back2Two Fri 18-Jan-13 17:59:46

I love that stacked ring. Tis lovely.
But, what is wrong with silver? I've always been silver not gold.

MaureenShit Fri 18-Jan-13 18:00:50

Predictable. White stuff. Mothers/ boots.

I do silver or gold. But never together

It's the Goring one I have miss, I really do love it - can't say I'd ever seen a shrimp necklace before!

Ah, I have the baby shrimp.

Pinot Fri 18-Jan-13 19:04:49

It's a PIECE of jewellery you NOB.

Anyway, Nodders used the word sneakers yesterday. Pick on her ;)

Pinot Fri 18-Jan-13 19:07:27

I don't like the shrimp.
Goggly eyes gives me the creeps tbh.
I want the 90cm necklace next.

silver28 Fri 18-Jan-13 19:09:53

I have the silver baby bee and the gold hedgehog. Love them both DVD get loads if positive comments from all sorts of people. They re quite small tho.

Diddydollydo Fri 18-Jan-13 19:20:06

I love it. Have silver bee, gold pear and daisy necklace and earrings. I love both the silver and gold. Wish I had loads more of the stuff!

Geordieminx Fri 18-Jan-13 20:02:59

I want the daisy ring. Humph

HollyBollyBooBoo Sat 19-Jan-13 08:47:08

You've convinced me! Ordered and on it's way hopefully. Birthday present too myself from myself (yes, tragic I know!).

knitknack Sat 19-Jan-13 08:49:40

I watched 'sileNt witness' last night and Nicky was wearing the swallow (clearly more exciting than the dialogue!!)

Pinot Sat 19-Jan-13 10:42:55

That character wears all Alex Monroe jewellery, lucky cow. Clover, swallow, pear, small feather - have seen them in last weeks episode too.

I'm also a silver not gold person.

Only problem with AM for me when I've tried necklaces is that it's just too pretty and delicate and small, whereas i am tall and large, so it just tends to disappear on me and certainly doesn't make a statement. I have to go for something a bit bolder.

I do also think some of the designs have been copied (eg birds) and rather done to death on the high street and become a bit of a cliché now - as with bird prints on clothes. But I'm sure his versions are still classier looking.
