Cat-a-Cake Creations Jewellery ♥

I really love being by the seaside and having lived by the sea in both Portsmouth and Brighton, I love anything that reminds me of that holiday, sunny feeling you get at coastal towns. I recently discovered Cat-a-Cake Creations - a jewellery and greeting card business run by Claire Montgomery. All of the pieces within Claire's range are so playful, fun and full of whimsy, they remind me of sitting on the beach or Brighton pier with a stick of rock!

Claire started creating her own illustrations and greeting cards after graduating from Uni, before branching out into jewellery design. Claire takes a lot of inspiration from Brighton and bases her collection on a retro seaside theme in order to evoke seaside memories such as ice creams, carousels and seagulls! She also takes inspiration from fairytales and has some gorgeous pieces such as teapots pouring stars and rabbits, cute deer and foxes and more. Her cat Buddy is also the muse behind one of her most popular necklaces!

Here are a few pieces from the Cat-a-Cake collection that are so cute I had to share with you all! My jewellery came beautifully wrapped in tissue paper and bows, with a sweet cat sticker, and was tied up in a sparkly gold and pink bag complete with a 'come and take a peek' badge!


My absolute favourite jewellery item is this beautiful laser cut gold shiny ice cream necklace! It is made from a gold mirror material and has mini hearts engraved as the sprinkles on the ice cream - so cute! I had so many compliments when I wore this necklace. It's so unusual and fun and it made me feel summery even though the weather was miserable. This necklace is also available in pink mirror and plywood. This necklace just feels so 'holiday'. It would also be amazing for bridesmaids to wear for a seaside wedding, especially if they were dressed in ice cream colours!
















Here are some super cute teapot dangly earrings - the perfect gift for tea lovers! These are pale pink and are laser cut acrylic. I can't wait to wear these to an afternoon tea party :-) I think they look adorable displayed on my vintage tea cup too!



This necklace features a wooden circular ring doughnut! The doughnut is hand painted with a soft mint coloured icing and has engraved sprinkle details. This was so much fun to wear and got a lot of comments too! It makes me want to take a visit to Krispy Kreme! Yum.








I absolutely love these 3 pieces and there are so many more items in the Cat-a-Cake collection I'd love to own! I had to share these beautiful photos with you that Claire has recently shot. It makes me want to jump on a train to Brighton right now and ride a carousel, adorned in Cat-a-Cake jewellery of course! The hairstyles and clothes in these photos are to die for! <3


I'm in love with this gold mirror pony necklace! It's 'My Little Pony' grown up! 


Such gorgeous ice cream colours! Love how oversized the ice cream necklace is and the hand painted wood is really pretty.


Carousel chic!


Jammie Dodger necklace! Would love to see a whole range of biscuit themed necklaces, the possibilities are endless - custard cream, party rings, bourbon biscuits, pink wafers!

Cat-a-Cake Creations is definitely on my favourite Brighton designer list! You can check out more amazing jewellery creations here, and you can buy direct from here on Etsy. I've got my eye on the Cat in a Hat Mirror necklace...

What is your favourite piece?
