Many moons ago, I used to work with Nelly Phelan – one of the most genuine people I’ve ever met. Recently, we crossed paths again and I discovered Nelly has launched Idlewild, a contemporary, handcrafted jewellery label for Idle Dreamers and the Wild at Heart.

Born out of Nelly’s desire to combine her love of drawing and contemporary design with traditional jewellery making technique, Idlewild draws inspiration from symbols and iconography of ancient culture, dreams, rituals, fairy tales and fables. Each delicate design is handmade and crafted from sterling silver, gold fill, bronze and natural gemstones.


To share the love, Nelly is generously giving one of you  a $300 Idlewild gift card. For your chance to win, all you have to do is:
  1. Become a Checks and Spots subscriber (if you’re not already!)
  2. Have a gander at the beautiful Idlewild collection and leave a comment below, sharing what you would like

Entries close at 10 pm Tuesday 16 August. Good luck!

Edit: Congratulations to the winner, Gail Virgona. Many thanks to everyone who entered!

Competition Fine Print:  Competition open to Australian readers only. This is a game of skill. The winner will be decided by Checks and Spots. Winners announced on Checks and Spots on Thursday 18 August 2016 and contacted via email. Prize is not transferable.

    I love the Orbiting Star Burst Drop Earring and Orbiting Star Burst Gem Ring from iDLEWiLD. I couldn’t just have the one love. To me, together they scream ROCKSTAR! Winning this amazing prize I could have both which would be a dream. As the black Star is said to bring calming energy to the wearer by easing stress and anxiety and a heightened sense of creativity. I could certainly imagine myself getting creative and de-stressing with these – Dancing around the house with my air guitar, my hair brush microphone in hand, singing to my hearts content. It would add a little glamour and fun to my crazy busy world! Thanks iDLEWiLD.
