Waxing Poetic is a new addition to the blog and one of their first collection that I fell in love with is the Storybook Pages. This brand offers large well crafted dangles designed to mark a moment in our lives as a keepsake. I’ve been so impressed with the quality of these products and their vintage aesthetic. The Storybook Pages immediately caught my eye because I am drawn to fairy tale themes. These particular charms are made of sterling silver with brass accents that really make them pop and they’re added on top of the silver so that there’s some texture and depth to the pages.
The Storybook charms resemble pages out of a book, hence the name and they remind me of the introduction to a fairy tale in the movies. The dangles are not uniform in shape, each one has a unique silhouette and edging as if they’re unfurling, and focus on different themes. The hoop is placed at the corner edge so that they hang at an angle and they make the happiest jingle when I wear them together.
My favorite out of this collection is the Once Upon a Time because it quotes the common beginning of any fairy tale book, and the brass detailing on the ye olde “O” is a fabulous touch. Naturally, Happily Ever After is a close runner up because it’s the conclusion of the story and the wonderful brass infinity symbols interwoven together is just so beautiful. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with any of them as each has its own specialness.
Waxing Poetic charms are on the larger side and can be used on all bracelets. I actually wear this collection together on their Beholder Bracelet with silver pearl (seen above) and it sounds like windchimes when I move my arm. This brand can be purchased on their website, La Chique Maison, and Goldmine Jewelry Shoppe. What do you think of these dangles? Which one is your favorite?
