Jewellery is often used to compliment your outfit however I often like to pick jewellery that makes the outfit. Today’s post is exactly that, a somewhat chic yet plain jumpsuit is transformed into an African Queen meets Cleopatra power ensemble – BAM!
I recently had the pleasure of meeting Oumaya, one of the owners behind Oumira Jewellery. Her jewellery stand is conveniently located on the top floor of the Canberra Centre, just near Bardot and Valleygirl. The first thing you will notice about her store are the eclectic range of bold statement pieces. The necklace that I’m wearing in the photos drew me like a moth to the flame! There is nothing dainty or subtle about the key pieces, they are designed to draw the eye. There are a range of designs from intricate beading to woven tribal designs and brightly colour acrylic sets.
What I didn’t realise about the jewellery on offer were the incredible prices. The only reason I did not rip this necklace right off the dummy was that I assumed it would be in the $200 price range, the actual price was a mere $45; An outstanding price for such a detailed piece. Oumaya explains that as she is situated near competitors such as Lovisa and Collette it is important to stay competitive. She also explains that items such as costume jewellery should be affordable, accessible and part of any woman’s wardrobe. When speaking with Oumaya you can see her passion, determination and warmth. She helpfully points out her new stock, store bargains and all the possible matching pieces to ensure I have a set of jewellery that will compliment my needs.
And as a special gift, Oumira is offering my readers a 30% discount when buying from her online store – www.oumira.com.au! All you need to do is to go over to Facebook and not only LIKE the Happy Schnapper page but also LIKE the Oumira page. Then when at the checkout enter the discount code “Happy Schnapper”.
And for my Canberra readers who like to try before they buy, you are not forgotten. After liking both the Facebook pages listed above you can find a voucher for 20% off in-store purchases on either of our pages. You can either print it out or just show a picture of the voucher on your smart phone. It’s that easy!
