I love mixing all my pearls and gemstones altogether to see what I can come up with. Autumn will be upon us soon so I was looking to design a piece that fits the time of year so I ended up with this beautiful sparkling bracelet if I do say so myself.Each pearl & gemstone has been meticulously wired to each of the links of the chain upon handmade fine silver and sterling silver head-pins and wire. The round white freshwater pearls are 5.5-6mm to give it a fantastic stylish look. The forest green mystic quartz measure 7.5 -8mm and are interspersed along the bracelet which makes it glow and also gives a beautiful contrast to the pearls. The rubillte garnet measure 4.5 – 6.5mm and are a fantastic deep red wine colour and are also interspersed along the chain. This bracelet is very eye catching with its contrasting colours without being over powering and has a warm and glowing look about it.The bracelet is fastened with a gorgeous sterling silver lobster clasp with a lovely sterling silver leaf charm. I am working on the earrings and necklace to complete this fab autumnal set.

Since we had the website re-vamped we have been looking into photographing our jewellery on new backgrounds. I cannot tell you how hard it is to photograph jewellery, We must have thousands of pics that we have taken but cannot use due to them just being rubbish lol. We have tried numerous props but they do not work for every piece due to different colours but then last week we were doing a bit of shopping in one of those “we have it all shops” and we came across a big pad full of fantastic looking vintage textured paper. It has different colours with different patterns but because its thick with a texture to it its great for jewellery. So we have been busy snapping away to get some fresh pics whichork and look fab. It makes it so much easier to get good pics without spending half a day wondering what colours and props to use so here is our latest rework which is our beautiful Rosa bracelet on a delicious pinky background.
Friendship bracelets are all the rage at the moment so we decided to design our own starting with a Beautiful children’s bracelet. These fabulous bracelets come with a choice of three different sterling silver charms, flower, heart or a star. The charm is stamped with the initial of your best friend and nestles between eight sterling silver balls. This bracelet comes in seven bright colourful cords to give a good choice and they look fantastic all stacked up on your wrist.
It was my Niece’s birthday last sunday and I made her one of our gold and silver rings bracelets. She is off to university soon so I thought I would etch some charms with a few words that might uplift her when things are not going so well.
Just a quick update about our facebook page. Well we got to the magical 100 fans and now we are aiming for 200 fans we currently have 140 give or take so we are not to far away. We are offering one of our beautiful personalised name charm necklaces with angel wing and heart to a lucky winner when we get 200 fans.
We decided to update one of our pieces which were the moonlight oxidised earrings. We thought we would bring abit of sparkle and brightness to this miserable summer so we have made a pair of sparkling earrings. We have kept the same design for this earrings but have changed the stone and have not oxidised them either. We changed the stone from opalite to grapefruit pink quartz and my are they really sumptuous. These earrings would be ideal for weddings either for the bride or bridesmaid in fact they would look good on anyone going to a wedding.
