Well it’s been a sad and tough last couple of weeks for us, We have had a couple of family bereavements one of which was our beloved fur-baby Broxi who was suddenly taken from us. We have had some great times over the last 12 years home and abroad and the workplace feels very empty without him. So we haven’t being making much over the last couple of weeks as you can image but we have got our new Mother’s Day personalised pearl necklace on the website, It’s a couple of weeks overdue to the above mentioned but sometimes work isn’t the most important aspects of life when it really comes down to it. It’s nice to see the nights getting lighter and a little bit more sunshine to boot, It makes you feel a little bit more happier. Anywho back to work we decided to go for more of a tradition necklace with this design and you cannot get more traditional than a pearl necklace! Of course we added a modern twist to the design with some personalisation. The pearls we used were 5.5-6mm and are a light cream colour, The quality is AA+ and they have a lovely lustre to them making them a wonderful starting componant for a new design. We added some sterling silver ball spacers between the pearls, It gives it that more elegant and classy look we feel, We do this with all our pearl range, It just adds something extra to it. Now the heart we cut measures 1.8cm wide by 2.5 high and is a nice sturdy 1.2mm thick, Because we cut our own shapes and sizes we can make the heart bigger if required but for what text we were using we decided on this size. There is so many personalised bits of jewellery out their that we wanted to design something a little different to your bog standard “Mum” centered on a heart. So we came up with idea of having “Mum” at a funky angle, It looks great, Something different but it did leave a big space on the heart so we thought about adding an image and the first one we thought of was a Rose as it goes hand in hand with Mother’s day really. Looking at adding other images at some point but we will just add that to the job list at the mo. On the reverse of the heart is where you can add your personal text, Depending on how much text someone wants we have the option of cutting the heart bigger but that’s a good thing! Flexibility that’s one of our main strengths. Overall this really does make a unique necklace, It has elegance,Class,Love all rolled into one necklace but if you would rather have something a little more subtle then we do offer this in a more simple design with it just on a sterling silver chain of which you have two choices, Trace chain or a Snake chain. Already I have a few new ideas for this design just from writing this blog, So onto the next challenge! Not sure what idea to start next but that’s all part of the adventure.
