Along came Amber
At least when I'm madly scouting the net-a-porter sale, I can quickly gauge the size of an item before seriously considering it, because they always show accessories on a model. So I thought, what a great idea! Perhaps I should do the same.
Then along came Amber! My latest model and friend. I saved her from some very dull industrial unit, where she was literally chocking in bubble wrap. Ha, hum (and actually between you and I, hoping she could surprise me with a good sort out of my very messy work desk whilst I'm sleeping).
I had to pierce her earlobes, so that I could thread earrings. A little more crude than they do in Claire's Accessories with my pedestal drill, made a little bit of a mess of the backs, but she didn't complain. And every now and again, I will be detaching her arm so I can photograph some bracelets, but I promise to be gentle.
No doubt you will be seeing a lot more of this bubbling blonde modeling my jewellery, as I slowly update all the pictures on my website. I am sure she will be a great guide to purchasing from now on....
