Here comes the review of Clara’s most iconic jewellery piece (at least in my opinion): the Ladybird Likes Moon Wooden Collar Clips.
Right now, as I’m writing this blog post, there are three of the original clips still available at the original Etsy Shop, but since the shop closed down at the beginning of the year, they will most likely sell out at some point. I got my own pair from that shop in autumn 2016 and they arrived in a lovely package which made it an absolute pleasure to unwrap them. Sometimes, the clips also pop up on Depop or eBay for roughly the original price of the item (which is around £15).
The clips are a gorgeous piece of jewellery that I would definitely wear more often if I was more talented in putting them on. The wooden moons have a little needle on the back and they’re fastened to the collar like a brooch. They look gorgeous on a plain blouse, especially combined with the rest of Clara’s Caretaker outfit.
Since this is a handmade item, the clips should be handled with care. I’ve owned mine for almost two years now and they don’t have a scratch on them, but you should still be careful in putting them on and taking them off. You should also keep them away from water because the moons are made out of wood.
If you’re a Clara cosplayer or generally interested in owning this outfit, I would suggest to grab them while you can because it’s not likely they’ll go into production again.
