I recently posted about visiting Melbourne’s World Event To End Animal Cruelty. One of the stalls I really wanted to visit was Hello Vegan and I was glad to finally have a chance to see their necklaces and earrings in person.
Hello Vegan create beautiful accessories using fairly traded and/or vintage materials, with a strong focus on vegan and environmental ethics. I had a tough time deciding what to get from the Etsy shop then a tough time browsing in person because I loved so many things, but with my daughter’s persuasion, the cats had to win! So on that note, in honour of our two (very spoilt) new family members, I settled on these sweet cat earrings (one for each cat!):
It took me a while to decide which cat necklace to buy. The earrings have the matching necklace, but I opted for the necklace with the cat and wooden heart. DeeW likes hearts and cats and I’m sure she would love to wear this necklace (if I feel like sharing!). I was able to select from the 16 inch or 18 inch silver plated chain, or the 22 inch ball chain. I went with the 16 inch chain, so it would be a better size for DeeW. And how lovely are the heart earrings? They’re also made with surgical stainless steel and are on hooks, like the cat earrings:
Ordering from Hello Vegan’s Etsy shop was easy and my order was shipped and received super fast. The earrings and necklace arrived in their own little bags, along with a magnet and this wee mouse playing card which made me smile. Along with the personalised thank you card, I thought these were really nice touches. I was excited enough to see the envelope waiting for me at home but the playing card in particular was the vegan icing on the vegan cake!
As well as accessories, you can also purchase gift vouchers from Hello Vegan’s Etsy shop. Items are shipped from Melbourne and can be posted internationally. There are lots of other designs available and great gift ideas too.
