Well where do I start, Its been a bit mad and scary the last 3 weeks but trying to get life back to normal as possible again after the birth of our son Euan. We had to take him into hospital when he was just 5 days old as he had a virus which caused him great pain so we had to close the shop down for the last 2 weeks and now we have reopened with loads of emails to catch up on which brings me to our new personalised gold and silver rings bracelet which we have had a lot of interest in and some kind comments and reviews. This beautiful bracelet was kindly added to a blog by Miss Frekkles who is a fantastic knitter and can be found on etsy and folksy.

Just thought i would share our new personalised bracelet with you all which we are very pleased about. Its a beautiful rings bracelet but with a bit of a twist, first of all we have used a sterling silver chain to string the rings onto to make it more secure and to add a bit more quality as i think it just looks better all round. I have then used sterling silver rings in which two rings have been soldered together to make one twisted ring which looks great. I decided to make the bracelet unique to IndiviJewels so i decided to add some gold vermeil rings to give it a contrast and also to catch peoples attention. Gold and silver always look so nice together just like strawberry’s and cream but it has to be designed in the right way so as not to look over bearing one way or the other so that’s why i added the gold toggle because if i just left it at the gold rings they just looked lost. This bracelet is a solid piece as the rings are big and sturdy not like all the lightweight ones where they are very small or look like they will break after a week that’s why the photo’s do not do it justice it looks much better in the flesh. The great thing about this bracelet is you can personalise it which makes it different and unique to us and to you. This is a great keepsake to remember people past and present and to remember them every time you put it on or look at it you will remember the good times. On the toggle i have added a little cluster of three charms just to make it look proportionate to the rest of the bracelet and to keep in line with our personalised range so you know its one of our pieces. Overall i don’t think you will find a better bracelet of a similar design than this one its just a timeless classic with a unique twist that makes it special. Ok that’s it for now i have got to go clean the floors and windows so i will leave you with a couple of pics of the bracelet.
Aah Sunday night and have managed to get a few minutes to write some words of wisdom i hope. Since we got back from Holiday it has been chaos with orders and getting back into work mode which isn’t easy for me at the best of times as Sue keeps pulling me up about all the tea breaks i have, I keep telling her that my genius comes from my thinking time. At the moment i have about ten projects going on at the moment which probably isn’t the best way to work but it suits me, and the one I am going to blog about tonight is my new white pearl cluster bracelet. I actually got the idea for this bracelet from our holiday destination which was Brittany which is in France for those of you who would not no that. I had been looking at photo’s with beautiful soft sandy beaches with water crashing off the rocks which makes that white foam and is surrounded by patches of lovely clear blue/green water and then the darker blue water further out and having been there its even better first hand. I used two different sizes of AA white freshwater round pearls, The sizes of these pearls are 3-3.5 mm for the small ones and 5.5-6mm for the bigger ones which give it a fantastic style. I then added some 4mm AA aquamarine faceted rondelles which i interspersed along the bracelet which just made the bracelet glow and give it beautiful contrast to the pearls. I do like to add contrasting colours to my pieces but you have do it in the right way or it just looks a mess so for my second gemstone i used AAA blue Iolite Mystic quartz which were 6.5-7.5mm which to me just made the bracelet complete. I did add one last item to the bracelet which was a sterling silver Fleur de Lys charm which i thought was appropriate in more ways than one. This bracelet looks very suttle but has that eye catching look which i think is a must for pieces like this. I am working on the matching necklace and earrings for this bracelet so it will be a lovely set but that’s for another time and blog so i bid you bonne nuit
Just a quick update on our slinky bracelet we have also put our etched name charms on this bracelet and it looks fab, this really does make a great treasured keepsake. I had a nightmare yesterday trying to get the photo’s of the bracelet, Firstly I lost all the etched charms down the skirting board as we live in a very old house nothing is very straight so there are slight gaps now and again but I managed to recover all but one. Then I dropped the light stand and broke the bulb which to my amazement cost £25 as I later found out so it wasn’t a great start to the day but I managed to get some shots and felt better even though I only had one light stand. I would like to thank all our recent Valentine customers for shopping at IndiviJewels and hope you like what you bought from us and for the kind words in your feedback we do appreciate this as we like to know how you feel about our Jewellery. I will leave you with a couple of pics of the bracelet as I have got to go back to work now as I have nearly finished another etched bracelet that will be part of a wider range so really looking forward to getting that on our site and blogging about it.
I’ve got a backlog of blogs to write but the wife and I have just been to busy at the moment so I’m just going to write about the two gemstone bracelets I have made recently. I have wanted to make some jewellery for a while now with AAA gemstones that I had sourced. It’s always a bit of a risk picking gemstone colours from photographs but I think I got it right with both bracelets.
The first bracelet I made was called Winter Berries which comprises of Amethyst, deep red Garnet, and pink Sapphire and it took many hours to make as there was a lot of wire wrapping involved. The base for this handmade sterling silver gemstone bracelet is a sterling silver belcher chain, with each gemstone meticulously wired to each of the links of the chain upon handmade fine silver head-pins. The intoxicatingly dramatic royal purple Amethyst onion briolettes are hand wrapped onto the chain and measure 5-6 mm. The deep red Garnet briolettes also hand wrapped are interspersed along the chain and measure 5 – 5.5mm. The beautiful natural pink Sapphire rondelles are interspersed and are attached by handmade fine silver head-pins and measure 3 – 4.4 mm. The bracelet is fastened with a gorgeous sterling silver lobster clasp with a lovely sterling silver flower accompanying it.
The second bracelet I made I called Fairydust as it is so delightfully graceful and elegant and waiting for a princess to wear, this was put together using Rose quartz, white round pearls and Pink Mystic Topaz. The base for this handmade sterling silver gemstone & pearl bracelet is a sterling silver belcher chain, with each gemstone & pearl meticulously wired to each of the links of the chain upon handmade fine silver head-pins. The intoxicatingly tender Rose quartz onion briolettes are hand wrapped onto the chain and measure 5 – 6mm. The beautiful white round pearls are attached using handmade head-pins and measure 3 – 4mm. The pink Mystic Topaz are also attached using handmade head-pins and measure 3.5mm to give the braclet a contrasting colour. The bracelet is fastened with a gorgeous sterling silver lobster clasp with a lovely sterling silver rose charm accompanying it.
