Before I begin the review of my recent purchase from Arts & Candies I thought I'd start off by telling you how I found out about her and her awesome jewelry! So Arts & Candies is run by a very lovely woman who creates handmade jewelry (i.e., necklaces, bracelets, rings, keychains and even phone cases!) from polymer clay. She creates chocolates, sweeties, and (the best!!!) LUSH Cosmetics products! I had seen her products circling the Lush-o-sphere on Tumblr and was in awe at the detail and how realistic the little charms looked! I was in a complete LUSH obsession so didn't jump to order it until a little later when the obsession subsided and I knew I would really want it! My friend Julia ordered from Arts & Candies to host a giveaway for her blog and when she showed me the pictures I just about died from awe (and utter jealousy!), caved and placed my order with Arts & Candies.
The picture above is of the keychain I ordered. She has an extensive list of all the LUSH products she can recreate for you. I decided to choose some of my favorites!
My order came in a small box (completely unharmed which was great seeing as how it was sent from the UK). Inside, the keychain was wrapped in pretty pink bubble wrap, and taped with heart tape that I thought was just absolutely cute! To my surprise when I pulled out my keychain something else lied underneath it. She had sent me a Happy Blooming bath melt ring! I hadn't even ordered it! I thought that was absolutely generous of her to do and I love the little pouch it came in (esp. the small star glitters!).

I was so impressed with the impeccable attention to detail! The labels on the bottles of shower gel were matched to the T. The bath products were created with all their little fixins. Twilight had its stars and moons; Gingerbread House had its sprinkles and small cinnamon stick. Just look at the Dirty Shower Gel! That's crazy! I only wish I had this kind of talent!
To order a custom product from Arts & Candies you have to e-mail the woman directly. E-mailing her was completely pleasant. She kept me updated on my order and the status of when she was creating it. What I loved even more was the picture she sent me after she finished making it! I loved that! It made me that much more excited to receive it! The price for this £ 24.99 (this price includes the shipping!) which is about $38.75 in US dollars. I'm not going to lie, the price was a little steep but after getting my package I have no regrets. There was so much attention to detail and her customer service is amazing. She is prompt with e-mails and is nothing but sweet and pleasant to chat with!
I highly recommend you guys check her out! Everything really is one of a kind. If you're a Lushie, like an amazing limited edition bath bomb, you need this in your collection! You won't regret a cent and I now I will cherish this for a very long time!
