OK feel I need to get on with some serious blogging as I’m getting to far behind so here I’ am “Mr Sadurday nite” yes thats right SADurday nite and welcome to my madhouse, a screaming baby and a very loud toddler wanting to play my computer games and one mad hound stoating round the house looking for dropped food lol. Well I’m blogging for a reason tonight and its to write about another new piece which is our personalised silver rings bracelet. Our other rings bracelet with the gold and silver rings has been a great success but we had quite a few enquiries about an all silver one as not everyone likes gold. I had planed to put both bracelets on at the same time but due to lack of time, yes I know someone get the violins out! lol and lack of certain stock items I couldn’t get it on until now.Somethings you really do like to make and I love making this bracelet, its just so unique and something different to all the other bracelets out there that just look so similar to each other. I have added one new finding which I will add to the other bracelet which is the charm holder which looks fantastic on this bracelet and to me just completes it. I couldn’t believe how hard it was to find a charm holder, I did plan to use this in the original design but just couldn’t get my hands on one. If I wasn’t a bloke I would love to wear this but people might think I’m a big girls blouse as they say which there’s nothing wrong with but I have a reputation to pretend to have lol. Will have to look into designing a manly version! OK back onto the subject matter. The good thing I like about this bracelet is the person detail you can have on it, A name of a loved one or a special date in time that means so much. My favourite is inspirational words because my niece is at university and for her last birthday I made her a gold and silver rings bracelet with three charms which had the words believe,dream and inspire just to give her a little boost when she finds it tough going. OK that’s enough waffle from me at the moment.

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.
Sunday night again! just cannot believe how fast the days go I am sure they used to go really slow when i was younger. This weekend has gone really quick as i have been building a sandpit for my boy, its all finished now just need some sand. I think i got my measurements wrong its huge but i don’t think my lad will complain though. I decided to build him one as the ones i have seen in the shops are pretty small and look lie they will snap after a week so i built one that will last for years lol. We didn’t get much time this weekend to work on the business but we did manage to get our new personalised bracelet on the website which we are very pleased about. All this miserable weather doesn’t help because i like to take my photo’s in natural light and it wasn’t easy on Friday but managed to get a few but i will take some new ones when the weather gets better.Our personalised necklace is one our best sellers and we have had a few enquiries about personalised bracelets as not everybody likes to were necklaces so we got to work designing a bracelet which as you can see is very elegant and stylish. For the bracelet we didn’t think a thin chain would work we wanted one that would stand out and have a look of quality so we went with a chunky cable chain which suits the design. The tags are the same ones we use for the necklace to keep it in the same range. We used an adjustable toggle because we get a lot of customers who are not quite sure what size they are so we thought this would be the best option. On the toggle we put a lovely cluster of charms which consist of a sterling silver angel wing, a sterling silver padlocked heart and a gold vermeil key which keeps with the theme of the bracelet which is for love of the people past and present in your lives weather it be new babies, family members or friends who have touched your lives this is a great gift that you can keep and remember the good times when you look at there names. OK that’s enough of the Mills and Boons stuff that’s all from me tonight but hopefully will be blogging tomorrow, i wish you a bonne nuit.
