I have been chatting away with a lovely lady on Twitter this while now, unbeknownst to me (until recently) this lady creates the most stunningly unique and cutest little accessories.
Spearheaded by Suzanne and Keith Livingstone, Baked In Belfast has already received the coveted Theo Paphitis #SBS Twitter accolade. Theo clearly knows when to stand behind a good thing.
This beloved pottery and preserve store is quirky in all the right amounts. Boasting Gin and Tonic Marmalade amongst it's edibles they also offer bespoke ceramic plates, bowls and ceramic plaques. If you have a request I'm sure Suzanne or Keith will do their best to accommodate you.
Now I knew Baked In Belfast were renowned for their marmalades and chutneys. What I didn't know is that they also handcrafts brooches, so insanely cute I feel I have to warn you!
Luckily enough I clicked open a picture attached to a tweet last week and I found myself staring at these little beauties...
When I exclaimed at the overwhelming cuteness of these brooches, Suzanne very kindly offered to gift me my very own. I was beyond excited when the package arrived (very quickly I might add, considering she was making them as she went last week)
Aren't they positively adorable!? I've yet to name them, suggestions are welcome!
I had to get them on my special coat ;)
I think this one in particular, The Lovebird (etsy link) is elegant yet cute at the same time.
This little Owl is all the fun!
I absolutely adore these wee brooches so much so I've already packed them back up for safe keeping. They're that special to me already. Carefully crafted and handpainted ceramic brooches that really are that little bit more special because of the person behind them. I hope to look back on these brooches in years to come and have fond memories of wearing them.
Nestled in together with each other for company.
Not only do I recommend these brooches from a fashion aspect I recommend getting your custom behind a great local Northern Ireland business.
Please do pop over and have a browse through Baked In Belfast's offerings:

You're certain to fall in cute with something, whether it's Russian Doll brooches or VW Camper bowls. And if you're in the vicinity of an event where they are hosting a stall this Summer? Say hello for me :D
