Janine Binneman Jewellery – jewellery that has heart

I totally stole that title from Janine Binneman’s website, but there is no better way to start this post than with the line ‘jewellery that has heart’.

Janine Binneman Jewellery made me an offer a couple of weeks I could not refuse. And when the most beautiful piece of jewellery arrived, my heart skipped a beat. Why? Because my daughter (my heart!) was co-designer. The pendant was created using my little girl’s self portrait. I don’t think I own anything quite so special.


This pendant, together with my engagement and wedding rings, will be treasured for ever. Thank you Janine!!

My love for Janine Binneman Jewellery does not stop there though. I have a wish list that’s a mile long. I have a great love for silver jewellery and the following pieces have to be mine. They just have to.

The semi-colon is the very first Janine Binneman pendant that grabbed my attention and it is still top of my lust list.

Peace-sign stamped charm

Its a peace sign… do I need to say more?


I simply adore these initial rings. They are so pretty.


These dandelion necklaces are a huge favourite. Aren’t they simply gorgeous?

And I agree.
