Twirly Trinkets Choker Review

Tuesday, 11 June 2013

So I saw one of the chokers I bought on tumblr, it was linked to the shop and usualy I stare longingly at lovely jewellery from America where the shipping costs as much as the item itself. But then I saw this shop was based in the Uk and I may have squealed a little, and with shipping only 95p I could hardly say no...

So I ordered my two chokers on Saturday one Spine Chain choker in black and a white Heart Locket choker and in total it cost me £9.93. Penny (the owner of the shop) messaged me to confirm what I wanted, then messaged me again when she sent the package out on Monday and it arrived today which is Tuesday. So there was great communication and amazingly fast shipping. It's all good there. Now onto the pictures ;L

Oh and I chose a new divider to go with this post ;3
So it arrived (two days after the order, 1st class post) in this padded envelope with fragile stickers on so nothing inside would get damaged. Again, not bad for 95p 

When I opened it my two chokers were packed in seperate mesh bags with extra goodies inside (I'll get to those later) and I just love little touches like this it made me really happy. There was also a little thank you note.
Oh and inside the mesh bags every individual item was in it's own plastic pouch with a sticker on. Very well packaged :)


 So these are the two chokers I ordered, this and this one. The spiked one was slightly too long so make sure to ask for a smaller one if you have a small neck like me. I just really love them so yeah.
This photo shows more of what the chokers look in real life. They're quite bright and very light.


Firstly there's this lovely white one, this was £4.99 and I am glad I chose this one. Sorry I edited these pics a lot the ones before show more of what the necklaces look in real life. 
This is comfortable and I can't decide whether I want to adjust it to be a little smaller or not. I'll probably keep it as it is. 
Anyway the velvet is super soft, it doesn't scratch and on this one the locket opens. Don't know what you'd keep in there but still; it's cute. I liked this in black but with the heart and chains I thought it looked super elegant in white and it does.
Very happy with this one.

Next there's this, it cost me £3.99 which I think wasn't bad at all. It's super cool and I kind of feel like a 90s goth wearing it. Need to match some clothes to go with this. 
The only down side I have to this is that when I got it it was too long. I mean I have a small neck and should've checked the lengths but if you do have a little neck like me make sure to ask if you can get a smaller size. The picture above is of it after I'd shortened it so it fit (it's not hard to do but best if you don't have to). 
The spikes are really light and you barely feel them on you at all. The choker is a little uncomfortable at first but I'm getting used to it and it's kind of a nice feeling now.

These are the freebies she sent me, the two on the left came with the white choker and the one on the right with the black one. The chain on the right is really weird but cool, the earrings are cute. The chain on the left is just a simple rubber black chain, but handy and I'll definitely find a use for them.



Overall:
  • Fast and cheap shipping
  • Great communication (lovely shop owner)
  • Good value for money
  • Make sure to ask for a small size if you have a small neck
Be sure to check out the shop.
Thank you for reading this review and have a great day
