  • Dogeared Karma Necklace in Tatler

    Our best selling and much loved karma necklace by Dogeared featured in February's Tatler magazine. Worn by the stunning actress Gabriella Wilde, the necklace is from her own personal jewellery collection. We love the way it works with her casual, relaxed clothing style. For the shoot she's wearing the classic karma necklace which we have available in 16 and 18 inch versions.

    Dogeared Karma Jewellery in Tatler

    Dogeared's karma jewellery collection has always been one of our best sellers, not only because of the gorgeous styles, but because of the meaning behind the jewellery. I'm a big believer in karma and it seems that our customers are too. Each item of karma jewellery comes on a card that reads:

    What goes around, comes around...wear your necklace as a reminder to keep the circle positive, peaceful and loving.

    It's a lovely message isn't it? Do you own any karma jewellery? Do you have  a special story behind it? Let me know below and we might blog about you!

  • Hot New Bracelets from Dogeared

    We've completely in love with our latest Dogeared jewellery arrivals - these gorgeous make a wish bracelets on chain. Set on chunky rolo chain bracelets, they have handy extender chains so you can wear them at the perfect length. They're available in silver and gold dipped versions. If you're looking for a meaningful gift then you really can't go wrong with these sweet new Dogeared bracelets.

    This is the 'All is Well' bracelet by Dogeared with a hamsa hand charm. It should be worn as a reminder that things are just fine. Hamsa hands are said to offer protection to the wearer. I'd give this a gift to somebody who needed a little reassurance in their life.

    Dogeared Bracelets at AccessoriesOnline.co.ukI love the infinity bracelet below. Featuring the iconic infinity charm, it's on a substantial chain bracelet (perfect for clumsy oafs like myself). Infinity jewellery is still a huge jewellery trend at the moment so not only is this a meaningful bracelet, but it's the height of fashion too.

  • Three of the best: Sensational Sales Necklaces

    It's Blue Monday today, (allegedly) the most miserable day of the year. Now, we're not going to tell you that you can make everything better by buying pretty, shiny things as well...that would be a lie. But, a nice new necklace can put a skip in your step when it's grey and cold outside (particularly if that nice new necklace is in the sale!) We've chosen three of our top picks from our sale items - pieces which will make you smile (and won't break the bank either!)

    Ted Baker Beetris Flying Duck Necklace

     

    We've spoken before about our love of Ted Baker's gloriously retro line of jewellery, but this?Beetris Flying Duck Necklace (reduced from ?59.00 to ?23.60)?is definitely our favourite piece from his collection. Looking like they flew to us directly from Hilda Ogden's 'muriel,' this is just the thing if you're looking to add a bit of 70s chic to your jewellery box.

    Bibi Bijoux Double Stranded Heart and Skull Charm Necklace in Blush

     

    If you're looking for something a bit less restrained, you might be interested in this unique?Bibi Bijoux Double Stranded Heart and Skull Charm Necklace in Blush (reduced from ?122.95 to ?73.77.)?One strand features faceted resin beads in a delicate blush colour, resin skulls, Swarovski crystal rondelle beads, a cross and angel wing charm. The other necklace strand has a delicate, scalloped design and is finished with tiny hearts. The charms on this necklace include a heart, star, four leaf clover and italian horns. We love the layered look of this necklace and the contrast between the silver and pale pink blush colour, helping it to look edgy yet feminine. This would work fantastically with a plain white t-shirt, skinny jeans and a bright pair of heels.

    Dogeared Sterling Silver Words to Live By Necklace-Lucky

     

    Feel like getting lucky this January? Take a chance, and bring the luck to you with this?Dogeared Sterling Silver 'Lucky' necklace (reduced from ?59.95 to ?29.98.)?Cast in sparkling sterling silver, this is the kind of piece that will make you feel like Lady Luck herself (and may even help to bring some good luck to your door!)

    Our?designer jewellery sale?just got even better as we've added more lines and made further reductions. The majority of jewellery and accessories are now 50% off or more. Get them while you can as once they're gone, they're gone!

  • Our cracking Christmas gift guide: ?30 and under

    First up, here are four fabulous presents for under ?30 - perfect if you're looking for something brilliant on a budget.

    Tatty Devine Psychedelic Heart Necklace

    While we're coveting pretty much everything from Tatty Devine's 2013 Autumn/Winter collection, we've got a particularly soft spot for this?Tatty Devine Psychedelic Heart Necklace (?30.00). Inspired by psychedelia, the 1960s and the 'great Summer of love,' it's bold, bright, beautiful and looks like it hopped right out of the Beatles Yellow Submarine!

    Ted Baker Rowon Rocking Horse Stud Earrings

    Rocking horses remind us of the festive season, and we think that these delightfully quirky?Ted Baker Rowon Rocking Horse Stud Earrings (?29.00) would make a great stocking filler. If you're feeling flush, they also have a matching necklace - just the thing to complete the look!

    Dogeared Charmed Sterling Silver Anchor Ring

     

    Ahoy there sailor! This simple silver?Dogeared Charmed Anchor Ring (?28.95) has a real retro feel to it, and would be the perfect accessory for any budding pin-up girl. If it's a bit too simple for your tastes, it looks great layered up with any of the other rings from our (vast) Dogeared collection!

    Lola Rose Hannah Marie Bracelet in Beryl Stone

    Feminine without being overly girly, this?Lola Rose Hannah Marie Bracelet in Beryl Stone (?24.95) is an utterly stunning shade of pale pink. Featuring a mixture of smooth, chunky translucent stones, who needs diamonds when you've got something this pretty around your wrist?

  • Sparkle Sparkle! Five of our favourite sparkly bracelets

    It's Autumn. The days are getting grayer and shorter, the weather's getting colder and people are starting to drop the dreaded 'Christmas' word into casual conversations. And while you could sit around and lament that it's October (already!), why not put a little sparkle in your life? If you follow us on Twitter, you'll see that we've been raving about some of the fantastic sparkly bracelets we've got in stock for the Autumn/Winter 2013 season. Here's five of our favourites. What's yours?

    Ted Baker Glitz Super Sparkle Cluster Bracelet in Grape

    Glittery and glamorous, this Ted Baker Glitz Super Sparkle Cluster Bracelet in Grape?(?49.00) looks like something which would be worn by Joan from Mad Men. Its clusters of rich purple coloured glass beads have a special coating which allows them to glitter with deep bronze tones. And while it's still?slightly?too early to be thinking about Christmas, we think that this would make a great accessory for any festive party!

    Ti Sento Sterling Silver Reversible Cubic Zirconia Crystal Bracelet

    If you're looking for something a little bit more understated, then this Ti Sento Sterling Silver Reversible Cubic Zirconia Crystal Bracelet (?70.00)?would perfectly fit the bill.?One side of the crystal has a bezel set cubic zirconia crystal whilst the other side has been set with smaller individual cubic zirconia crystals, allowing it to add a simple touch of sparkle to even the most mundane of outfits.?Wear it with the matching earrings, pendant and ring to complete the look.

    Dyrberg/Kern Ice Lumina Swarovski Crystal Bracelet in Shiny Silver

    We love the bigness and boldness of Dyrberg/Kern's new Autumn/Winter collection, and this Ice Lumina Swarovski Crystal Bracelet in Shiny Silver (?69.00) is no exception. Comprising a great gobstopper of?Swarovski ELEMENTS crystals in mixed shapes and sizes on a?hand knotted macrame bracelet, it is full of unashamedly brash brilliance.

    Karen Millen Druzy Crystal Bangle

    We love the unique shape of this?Karen Millen Druzy Crystal Bangle (?65.00),?as well as the pattern of the crystals it's dotted with. While it may not be as ostentatious as some of the other bracelets we've featured here, it's simplicity may be what makes it one of our favourites. It's the perfect thing to team with a little black dress for some understated glamour.

    Dogeared Sterling Silver Medium Sparkle Karma Bracelet on Tobacco Linen

    While this?Dogeared Sterling Silver Medium Sparkle Karma Bracelet on Tobacco Linen (?44.95)?may not be as sparkly as the other bracelets here, we quite like its dull silvery shimmer. It also has a lovely?textured, sparkly karma circle charm - a gloriously pretty reminder to stay positive, peaceful and loving. (Which isn't the easiest thing to do sometimes!)

  • Six of the Best: Rose Gold jewellery

    Rose Gold is very on trend at the moment, and with good reason. Not only does it put people in mind of warm glows and sunkissed Summer days, but it suits practically every skin tone - from pale Celtic complexions to bronzed poolside tans. ?Some of our favourite designers are creating some amazing signature pieces in this metal this season. Here's six of our favourite picks from our collection.

    I'm not sure if it's the spikes, the dash of pink or the fact that I just really love big cats, but I am totally head-over-heels for this?Mawi Neon Spiked Panther Ring in Rose Gold (?215.00).?Created in commemoration of Mawi's 10 year anniversary, it manages to combine style with the right amount of 'don't mess with me' toughness. ?The hint of a sparkle comes from the row of Swarovski crystals embedded within it, making it the blingiest and most bad ass accessory in town.

    Mawi Neon Spiked Panther Head and Crystal Pendant in Rose Gold

    The Mawi Neon Spiked Panther Head and Crystal Pendant in Rose Gold (?243.00) is equally stunning. There's a real Art Deco feel to this piece, giving it the look of something which would be worn by a 1930s Hollywood siren for a night on the tiles. Forget Autumn/Winter, this is a necklace which could be worn during any season - a real statement piece which makes a stylish, colourful impact.

    There's something very British about this Alex Monroe Rose Gold Plated Baby Shrimp Necklace (?109.95). Unique, quirky and utterly charming, it comes from the designer's Best of British collection, and was inspired by his memories of his childhood. It's just the thing for a windswept seaside afternoon tea filled with lashings of ginger beer and thick slices of bread and butter.

    I'm not sure if it's the hint of Autumn in the air, or the fact that the nights are drawing in, but I'm already planning this year's Halloween outfit (yes, I know it's a bit early). These amazing Wildfox Skeleton Earrings in Rose Gold (?49.95) will definitely be making an appearance. Not only are their grinning faces utterly ghoulish, but each of their bodyparts are also individually articulated, meaning that they wiggle and jive in rhythm with your walk.

    Dogeared Triple Karma Ring Necklace in Rose GoldIf you're looking for something slightly less sinister, then this Dogeared Triple Karma Ring Necklace in Rose Gold (?56.95) is full of warmth and good vibes. The three rings symbolise three different types of karma - past, present and future. While wearing this might not help you to win the lottery, it may make you feel slightly more well inclined towards that annoying person sat next to you on the bus.

    Dyrberg Kern Cone/B Crystal Tennis Bracelet in Rose Gold

    This Dyrberg Kern Cone/B Crystal Tennis Bracelet in Rose Gold (?79.00) is brimming with elegance. It's slim, dainty and set with Swavovski crystals. It's just the thing to wear with a little black dress, and looks brilliant when paired with one of the chunkier bracelets from the same collection.?

  • Dogeared Jewels & Gifts AW12 Collection

    With autumn just round the corner and the 'holiday' season (see, we didn't say THAT word) approaching, Dogeared have created a collection of jewels that are perfect for gift giving.

    The design process is always so much fun at Dogeared. Their design studio is a modern version of a refined arts and crafts studio - they're always chin-deep in an explosion of stones, beads, metals, textures and colour with pencils and sketches scattered as far as the eye can see. They love taking all of these elements and coming up with new combinations that are current and creative.

    Dogeared Gifts to Go Hammered Hoop Earrings, ?46.95 Dogeared Gifts to Go Hammered Hoop Earrings, ?46.95

    For the autumn/winter 2012 season, they have created a new 'Gifts to Go' collection with the intention of offering the best gifts infused with positive energy for absolutely every occasion. Each piece of jewellery comes nestled in a custom decorative gift box. Nepalese women hand-craft the box’s gift-paper lining from Lokta bark, using an ancient, eco-friendly technique. The collection of bracelets, and earrings are handmade in the USA using leather, gemstones, rhinestones, chain, sterling silver and gold. Prices range from ?39.95 to ?76.95.

    The best selling Karma collection has also expanded to include Sparkle Karma necklaces. Single and multiple hoops shimmer in gold, sterling, rose gold and charcoal-dipped versions, and range in price from ?39.95 to ?99.95.

    Multi Link Sparkle Karma Necklace, ?99.95 Multi Link Sparkle Karma Necklace, ?99.95

    "We want our customers to shine this season, so we were inspired to add sparkle to our most popular designs," commented Marcia Maizel-Clarke, Dogeared founder and designer. "Extra shine makes a statement, yet remains uncomplicated, easy to wear, and inspired by our free-spirited California sense of chic."

    At the heart and soul of Dogeared is their commitment to using only the highest quality materials and the most eco-friendly production practices possible - all while being handmade in the USA. As Marcia says, "By carefully handcrafting every piece in an eco-friendly way, each Dogeared jewel has a story to tell... and being handmade with love is at the core of all of them."

  • Five Fantastic Festival Looks

    The August Bank Holiday weekend is rapidly approaching, and with it a bumper crop of festivals (Reading and Leeds, Creamfields and Notting Hill Carnival to name but a few). If you're looking for something to wear which is slightly more fashionable than a pair of muddy wellies, why not check out our collection of festival jewellery? Here's five of our favourite picks.

    Dogeared Silver Wishbone Necklace

    If you want to make a wish for good weather (and relatively little mud), then this Dogeared Large Silver Wishbone Necklace (?44.95)?is the item for you. ?Simple and chic, it goes with practically everything, from Kaftans to Cagoules.

    House of Harlow Locket Ring

    Chunky and unique, I love the feathered detailing on this House of Harlow 14ct Gold Plated Feather Locket Ring?(?62.97)?The locket effect also allows you to hide lots of little secret goodies (such as paracetamol for when that next-day-post-cider hangover kicks in).

    Kirstin Ash Zebra Cluster Necklace

    Cluster necklaces are very popular at the moment, and this Kirstin Ash Zebra Cluster Necklace (?79.00) is one of my favourites. It features two pendants - one with?a small four leaf clover on a vintage paper background, and one which features a very splendid?golden silhouette of a zebra.

    Daisy Chakra Bracelet - Sahasrara - The Crown Chakra - Gold Plated

    If you'd like to wear something slightly more fashionable than a festival wristband around your wrist, I suggest this Daisy Chakra Bracelet - Sahasrara - The Crown Chakra - Gold Plated (?86.00)?The chakra symbolises intelligence, awareness and thoughfulness, which are all the attributes you need when you're trying to navigate your way around a field at 3am.

    Fiona Paxton Tulsa Earrings in Silver

    These Fiona Paxton Tulsa Earrings in Oxidised Silver (?44.98)?are long, slim and stylish. The herringbone style metal chain and stud tops lend them a spiky elegance.

    Are you off to a festival this weekend? Which of our pieces would you like to be wearing? Let us know in the comments, or by tweeting us at @accessories_uk.

  • Dogeared Create - Some Inspiration

    I've been gradually adding charms to my Dogeared Create necklace over the last few weeks and I absolutely love how it's looking right now. I've threaded the charms on to a longer 100 Good Wishes necklace and added a Healing Gem pendant from another Dogeared necklace. For me that's the beauty of Dogeared Create, you can completely customise your jewellery to create something that's personal and meaningful to you. You can even add the charms to existing items of Dogeared jewellery, as the jump rings are large enough to slip over most of their clasps.

    Here's how it's looking at the moment, what do you think?

    I'm already eyeing up other charms to add to it. Next will be the hummingbird and possibly a December birthstone for a touch more colour.

  • Dogeared Jewels & Gifts AW11 Season Preview

    As part of its year-long 20th birthday celebration, Dogeared presents their autumn/winter 2011 line with new fashion collections.

    Flea and antique markets in Italy - the arts and crafts of Bhutan - vintage stores in New York City - and the Farmers Markets, beaches, and landscapes of Southern California ? all inspired the original jewellery created for Dogeared’s new limited edition collection. The colours and textures of nature, the techniques and materials of artisans around the world, and the importance of adornment in all cultures inspired the creative vision behind this collection.

    Dogeared 'Balance' Pin with Om Charm

    Dogeared

    Founder and designer Marcia Maizel-Clarke returned from a recent trip to Florence, Italy with gorgeous, gilded, embossed, and painted antique trays she found at a flea market. The colours, textures, and designs of these trays led to collecting richly coloured gems that were available only in very limited quantities. These, in turn, became the new Limited Edition Jewels Collection. Large gems, including Carnelian, Labradorite, Grey Onyx, and Cape Amethyst, and small gems and gold-dipped beads are wrapped and hang on long leather ties. Each is handmade to order by Dogeared designers and is one-of-a-kind. Very limited quantities of each style are available this season only.

    Dogeared Limited Edition Collection

    Dogeared

    The Dogeared Modern Vintage Collection is all about updated classics. Designs have vintage, heirloom feel, but with thoroughly modern overtones. Warm gold combined with gemstones and new custom designed, hand-cast charms together create distinctive jewellery. New charms include a Clover Disc and Amulet, and are layered with gemstones.

A new Karma Sign necklace features the word ?Karma? in custom-designed lettering cut through a sterling silver or gold-dipped rectangular plaque. The Karma circle, the simple and powerful word Karma, and the concept that, ?what goes around, comes around,? continue to inspire beautiful jewellery new designs.

    Healing Gems: Beautiful coloured gemstones have been used in healing and spiritual rituals for centuries. Onyx, turquoise, carnelian, and numerous colours of quartz have long been offered in a variety of best-selling Healing Gem styles. This season, new Teardrop Healing Gems are available as necklaces and earrings. Artisans hammer each stone into a setting by hand, creating a look and a texture that could never be achieved by machine.

  • The Story Behind the Dogeared 'Stand up to Cancer' Necklace

    The Dogeared Stand up to Cancer necklace is very special. Profits from the sale of each necklace go to Stand Up To Cancer's groundbreaking efforts to do the work, find the cure, and put an end to cancer. Here's an interview taken from the SU2C blog with Merlin Clarke, co-founder of Dogeared telling us the story behind the necklace.

    How did Dogeared get started?

    It started 20 years ago on our dining room table. My wife Marcia was between jobs and began designing jewellery. We brought it to the Rose Bowl swap meet to see if we could sell some of her creations, and we did! My wife was inspired by the fact that something she created was so appreciated by our customers so she started designing more.

    Several twists and turns later, we went from selling a few necklaces to selling thousands in stores worldwide.

    What makes Dogeared different?

    At our core we are all about sending messages of love, kindness, and inspiration into the world. All of our products are handmade in the U.S. and we try to use recyclable material for our jewellery whenever possible.

    How did Dogeared get involved with SU2C?

    We do a lot of work with non-profits, and when SU2C approached us about working together we thought it was a great fit. It's a collaboration we are really proud of.

    Do you have a personal connection to cancer?

    Unfortunately, I have more than one. I lost my best friend to cancer when I was 20. A few years later I also lost my dad to the disease. In addition, I have several friends and co-workers that have been touched by cancer as well.

    What inspired the design for the SU2C arrow necklace?

    We wanted to design products that made a strong connection to SU2C's mission and that people would love to wear. The arrow necklace, one of our first SU2C designs, symbolizes standing up and making a difference in the fight against cancer. It is simple, modern, and powerful. It's a piece of jewelry that carries a story behind it, which I really like.

    What is unique about purchasing the necklace?

    There are so many ways to contribute to a good cause, but there is something unique about always being able to wear something that's meaningful, like the arrow necklace.

    Does knowing your brand is contributing cancer research, make your job more fulfilling?

    If I look back 20 years ago to when we were started at the Rose Bowl I never thought we'd be the company we are now. As we've evolved, I get most excited about the social impact we've been able to have. Our jewellery is a means of expression that allows us to make a difference and continue to give back.

    Can you tell us about any personal experiences you've had as a result of working with SU2C?

    It's been amazing to be a part of this community of doers. We were able to attend the SU2C show in 2010 and it was great to see so many people wearing the arrow that we designed, and to be part of something that big. Most importantly I think it is amazing to be a part of this community of people coming together to make a difference in the fight against cancer. The whole experience with SU2C has given us a lot of pride and turned out to be great partnership for us.
