daisy chain dreaming: literary emporium







It was actually my Mum who stumbled across this little gem of a shop- the Literary Emporium sells, as the name would suggest a wide array of gorgeous gifts for book worms and literature lovers.
I’ll let the owner, Rio take over here and tell you a little bit about the brand as I can never find words to do such places justice…
“Literary Emporium is a giftware brand that specialises in handmade jewellery, stationery and gifts inspired by great works of literature.
Literary Emporium was born after I completed my English degree and was a result of my love of classic literature and beautiful books. The range started with a single postcard featuring a famous quote from Wuthering Heights, in homage to my dissertation subject. My interest in crafts then led me to create handmade necklaces with a literary twist. I was lucky that other people seem to like literature as much as me and started to buy my jewellery and postcards.
I have now created lots of different items for the Literary Emporium brand including wedding confetti and bracelets. I am always working on new designs and looking to my bookcase for inspiration”

There is SO much on the site that I have bookmarked to buy, namely jewellery I must admit. My first purchase (and I don’t know how much longer I can hold off) is this Keats Silver Dewdrop Necklace on sale for just £9.60. Keats is one of my favourite ever poets so it goes without saying that I need this in my life.

Are you an avid reader? Take a look at the Literary Emporium– have a favourite book or author that isn’t on the site? You can make your request in the custom design section. Brilliant. Utterly brilliant.

(I must mention that Rio is super friendly and helpful too!)

  1. ohmygosh, this is SO my kinda stuff… love that first necklace. im checking out the website now :p

  2. I really like the cloud necklace and really nice to hear a little behind the story of the brand! 🙂

    All I can think of is people that have carpe diem quotes in their homes. I hate that.¨



  4. This is SO cute 🙂 I’m tempted by the Oscar Wilde ‘We’re all in the gutters…’ or the Jane Eyre birdcage necklace. My favourite book is probably Pride and Prejudice or Captain Corelli’s Mandolin but there isn’t a CCM item and the P&P necklace doesn’t jump out at me, haha!
    I’d also be swayed by a cute Gatsby design! Thanks for the heads up on the website 🙂 xxx

  5. Keats is one of my favourite poets too! I will definitley have to buy something of his. Lovely little post – going to take a look at the shop!
