Well haven’t I fallen into bad habits again!!! It only felt like I was off on my Short break to the seaside and here we are two months later at winter’s door. So the website is coming along nicely, We got the first page designed WOO-HOO, lol, Anyhow as you guessed by the title this blog is about our new and unique collar stiffeners which we are more than happy with. Over the last year or so we have had those deluded people who call themselves Jewellery designers but infact what they do is just copy other peoples hardwork and then take all the rewards (Still thinking about taking legal action) Yes we all know them folk, Anyway that prompted us to think about living upto our name IndiviJewels so we set about designing something new which just happened to be these Beautiful,Elegant,Treasured Collar stiffeners yes I could go on! Nothing like pumping up your own work lol. Obviously you are pretty limited to what you can do with collar stiffeners due to the shape but we happened to come across the idea of tie shaped stiffeners and then found no end of tie puns which give us the idea for the stiffeners. We have been working away like Santa’s little elfs trying to get these made in time for Christmas. Anyway the end result is we are over the moon with these collar stiffeners, Sets us apart from everyone else which is how we like it and gives IndiviJewels another unique and exclusive design which is OURS!!! We have made Cufflinks and a very cool tie slide to make up a wonderful range but that’s for another blog.

Well here we are again! Tuesday morning and just managed to get the little one off to sleep so thought I would grab my chance to jump on the computer and write one of my rare blogs these days. I’ am struggling to get my eyes to open today its funny how you get days like that. Well time is a wasting so let me crack on with our new personalised piece before the little one wakes up. We have had great success with our Mummy keyring that we have made a family love keyring. As its father’s Day this weekend we made the mock-up with a Daddy message but this keyring will be for anyone and everyone, family,friends, and maybe even work colleagues if you like them lol. Everything on this piece is sterling silver, the actual keyring is a beautiful solid silver oval screw shape, thought I would just add this as it seems some people use stainless steel key- rings with a silver tag but make out that the whole thing is sterling silver which isn’t the case with us. We have cut out a piece of shaped silver from sheet which measures 50mm long,10mm wide and 1mm thick so its a nice sized piece of silver to work with and get the text that we wanted on it. As you can see from my expert photography the two key-rings look like a pair of scissors lol. We tinkered with the idea of adding a charm or two but thought against it in the end as we feel it looks just right on its own and in proportion to the keyring so for this one it was best decided to leave well alone.
Just a quick update on our newest product which is our Golf ball marker. We have added some new designs that can be etched on to these fabulous keepsakes. Time is not on our side at the moment with our new son so jobs are taking a little longer than planned but we will get there.We have not forgotten the girls as we have this lovely golf chick marker. We have really enjoyed designing these golf markers, They make such a treasured keepsake and a unique gift.
Lets get started this morning with a blog before time just disappears as usual.We have been busy working on a few gifts for men as we currently do not have any and have been asked on numerous occasions if we cater for men so now we have decided to design a few pieces. The first design we thought of making was golf markers as so many men(and women) play golf and this was just before the rider cup was due to start but due to the birth of our son we had to put it on the back burner. We had hoped to have this ready at the same time as the rider cup as there would be an added interest in golf so we missed out on that one. Like most personalised gifts there is so many different words or phrases to use, So we decided to make a couple of golf markers with text on them to give people an idea of what that can have on them. The disk is sterling silver and measures 26mm in diameter so we get a lot of text on them and then there is the back of them to use as an added option. This is a fantastic little gift for those of you that struggle to find something for the men in your lives, husband,brother,boyfriend,son. This is not just for men as so many women play golf but people do not tend to struggle for gifts for women as much as men but these golf markers are for everybody. The etched text is so sharp and crisp due to our new process of making our personalised pieces that it just adds to the quality of these great designs.
Just finished putting these wonderful Personalised Silver Cufflinks on our website. We have been going as fast as we can to get personalised pieces designed and made but unfortunutaly it just doesn’t work like that you always run into problems when you do compilcated work but half the fun is problem solving, but we have got this pair finished and ready for sale. These cufflinks have an 18mm diameter and are 1.5mm thick that give it a nice weight to it but also keeping that elegant look. I love the font we used for the cufflinks but we also do them in three other fonts to give people a choice. We have about 2-3 other pairs of cufflinks that we would like to do, with different shapes and with some words on as well so we cover a wide range of topics such as weddings, fathers day, to putting children’s names on them there is so much you can do with personalised jewellery. I wasn’t convinced with personalised jewellery but now I have got my hands dirty I love it.
