Stephen Webster Jewellery Collection

I came across this new jewellery collection by Stephen Webster. The collection is called 'Murder She Wrote' and features classic murder weapons - a poisoned apple, smoking gun and a dagger. These 'murder weapons' have had a sprinkling of jewels and now look good enough to wear! Again, these items are a little out of my price range but are still pretty to look at!

For as long as I can remember, I've always been a fan of murder mystery stories and themes. 
I hardly ever watch TV and when I do, it's usually a crime based drama of some sort. 

My top three favourite murder mystery stories are:

1. 'And Then There Were None' by Agatha Christie 1939. It tells the story of 10 people trapped on a remote island and they discover each have previously committed a crime. The story follows the 'Ten Little Indians' poem and the murderer matches each death to a different verse of the poem eg: 

'Ten Little Indian boys went out to dine; One choked his little self and then there were nine.' 

The first person dies at the dinner table and the rest continue on with the poem. It is a great movie with an even greater ending. You have no idea 'whodunnit' right until the end. 

2. 'Death On The Nile' by Agatha Christie 1937. A series of murders take place upon a cruise ship travelling down the Nile river in Egypt. This was one of the first books I ever fully read and I literally couldn't put it down. I must have read it about 200 times now and i'm still surprised and intrigued throughout the whole book. The story has one of the cleverest plots i've ever read and I remember being totally stunned the first time I read it. 

3. 'The Hound Of The Baskervilles' by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle 1939. This is an absolute classic and definitely one of the first movies that scared me when I was little. The eerie setting and creepy plot make for a thrilling story that never gets old. 

If you haven't seen any of these movies/read these books, then I thoroughly recommend them! Preferably, watch them alone in a dark room so you can get the full creepiness of them..

 (I promise to make my next few posts a lot less spooky..)
