Beat the Monday blues by checking out something or someone we love. Here at Your Vintage Life, we feel it is important to share great finds with you all as well as support local business.
So this Monday I introduce you the fantastic AbiLu Creations owned by Abigail Lucy Bruford.
I first met Abigail at a very rainy Lovebox festival in July. She had the next door stall to me, selling her collection of hand-made necklaces, hair accessories and other gems. I was drawn to her stall like a magpie..infact I seemed to spend more time with her, trying stuff on than on my own stall. I bought a peacock feather head band which I proudly wore watching Blondie with my gold and blue vintage Jean Muir style Grecian dress……sorry I digress!
So back to AbiLu…their handmade charm plectrum necklaces are legendary. She sells them online at www.abilucreations.com but also at many markets and festivals across London such as Portobello and Camden.
After studying Costume Design and Fine Art at university, she went on to teach. However, spare time was spent building up her business. Launched in 2005, Abi now sells to boutiques and wholesalers such as NME.com and is part of the amazing Filthy Gorgeous London in Debenhams (along side Now, Voyager who we featured a while back).
We want to share with you, in particularly the fab plectrum charm pendant necklaces. Abi rescues treasures, often vintage and adds her signature branded spectrum. These hang on a long chain, are eye-catching and whats more unique. Every piece is different, and with Abi’s bespoke service you can have a necklace which is totally personal to you. You can have roses for splash of colour, guitars, microphones even a welly for those muddy festivals.
All are grouped together to give you a rock look, a pirate look..whatever you choose! And the best bit is prices start at only £10. On some you can also choose the length of chain as well as between silver or gold on the snake chains…..great service huh?
Each comes wrapped beautifully and in a little pouch…a perfect gift for yourself (or a loved one if you can bear to part with it!)
