dindi is a darling shop. like all shops from Europe, its appeal comes from the quaint & special pieces inside. lets just say it, dindi's charms are charming. the silver sentiments speak for themselves. when it comes to jewelry, i like to wear simple, delicate & unique. i've never seen a volkswagen bus nor an egg beater hanging around anyone's neck before. dindi suits my fancy perfectly, i am drawn to anything tiny & twee.



dindi is offering one m.writes reader a charm necklace of their choice! simply leave a comment to enter to win. tell me what (or whom) you think is charming. comments are open until saturday / june 27 / midnight / mountain time. a random winner will be announced next week.

Oh my. Love these!! I especially love the count the moments one- my father-in-law had a thing for clocks (a HUGE collection) and he passed away a little over a year ago. My mother-in-law is from Switzerland so in his collection they have a bunch of cuckoo clocks. As much as I'd LOVE it for myself I'd probably give it to her. It'd make her smile (and give me some brownie points. ;) She misses him SO much.
Thanks!

Thanks, Marta.
