Just a quick one to keep you updated on whats happening and the last posting times for this month!


LAST POSTING DATES FOR 2017:


Second class signed for in the UK Wednesday 20th December 2017


Post is taking longer to arrive at this busy time of year, I have already turned off international post. It is better to order sooner as I cannot guarantee your parcels will arrive in time for Chrismas. I will be closing from 1pm on Wednesday 20th 2017. You can still contact me to discuss current orders.


You will still be able to order from the website over the Christmas holidays but nothing will be posted until Wednesday 3rd January 2018. When we will re-open.


I posted a video on my Facebook page of the gorgeous gift bags you could choose from, a brilliant way to personalise your Christmas gifts this festive season.

You can choose from my standard purple butterfly patterned organza gift bag and I added two more stunning bags, a gorgeous white snowflake patterned organza bag and the luxurious red velvet santa sack gift bag.


I have added new pendants in the animal section featuring some of the most favourite birds of Britain, from the wonderful Puffin to a gorgeous green and red Woodpecker and the fabulous Blue and orange Kingfisher. And it wouldn't be winter without some penguins!


I am very grateful for all the support, comments and reviews that you send me, as a small business this feedback is so useful and vital to bring you even more gorgeous jewellery for the new year and beyond.


I thought I would share with you one of the reviews I received from a customer about the gorgeous goldfish paua shell earrings - one of my bestselling products for 2017, my customer said


"Really lovely earrings, they look even better in real life! Arrived quickly and beautifully packaged with a personal touch. Thank you"


So once again, thank you for supporting my small business.


Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Summer holidays are here and like a lot of people my thoughts turn to long hot sunny days by the beach, so if you are looking for ideas for what to wear this summer then pop over and have a look at some of the stunning paua shell beach themed jewellery.


You will find fabulous flamingos, seashells, palm trees, turtles, seahorses and an Octopus, to make them easier to find I have them listed under the 'Summer' category on the website. A selection has matching earrings with sterling silver earwires.


And why not check out my selection of fantastic oriental design brocade jewellery rolls. These are perfect for travelling, with various zip pockets to store your earrings, necklaces, pendant, chains, rings and bracelets. The jewellery rolls up and takes up very little space - a must especially if you have limited space in a case or hand luggage.


I have been busy behind the scenes as always working on various new ideas, one of which is receiving great reactions are my chunky charm themed bracelets the first of which is my Ocean blue charm bracelet.

This has a wonderful collection of sea themed silver plated charms mixed in amongst the semi precious, glass, resin and polymer clay beads.


Other themes include stars, sunshine and rainbows, unicorns, angels and gratitude, pet memorial and space! At the moment I am collecting and sorting through my bead horde for my goth kitty and halloween charm bracelets, I can't wait to show you.


Last but not least I have decided to carry on making bead kits, this will be the first time I will have them available online and will have them ready to go in the next week or so (just need another pair of hands to either hold the pliers to demonstrate the instructions while I take the photos!) I loved making up the kits back in the days when I worked in a bead shop and wanted to share the joy that making your own jewellery can bring.


If you can't wait to find out all my latest news and offers first then pop over to the website home page and sign up to my free newsletter, there is a chance to win £10 to spend on this website for one lucky subscriber.


Until next month,

Hello,


For the last couple of months I have been looking to see how I can add more sunshine and sparkle into my life, partly inspired by Marie Kondo's book 'Spark Joy' with the theory that if an item or object doesn't spark joy then you thank it and let it go. I've tackled a couple of areas one of which has been my work space and it has resulted in a sense of organised chaos now, I think it may be a continuous work in progress!


All this sorting and clearing out meant I rediscovered some beautiful sparkly Swarovski® crystals and gemstones that I had hidden away. With ideas now flowing and the colour pink everywhere I looked especially a recent program following the cherry blossom trail across Japan I was inspired to create my Cherry Blossom Cascade wire wrapped dangly crystal pendant and earring sets as shown in the top photo I have listed and added them to my eye catching colours of the Rainbow, Fire and Ice crystal cascade sets under my Swarovsi® section.


One of my forgotton treasures that I unearthed was a gorgeous string of Rainbow Moonstone beads, unfortunately I soon found that less than half the beads could be strung onto silver plated headpins due to the original drilled holes being far to small, luckily the solution was a wonderful new tool, the Beadalon bead reamer. It is a bit time consuming but the effort will be worth it as this gemstone is such a joy to wear especially when the blue luminescence hidden in the stone catches the light. Rainbow Moonstone is believed to be a visionary stone enabling you to be open to possibilities surrounding you with a positive mindset.


This month has also brought home how important kindness and compassion are in our lives especially after the recent tradgedy in Manchester. I wanted to do something and I know a lot of people believe in angels, especially those who watch over us and decided that two of my carved gemstone angels would like new homes, so on my facebook page I have the chance to win a Rose Quartz or Amethyst Angel carved figure, but don't worry if you've missed out you can have your very own angel you can find them under the crystals and kits section on the website.


Each gemstone has different healing properties, Rose Quartz is known as a stone of unconditional love, warmth and compassion, it is a crystal for the heart opening the heart chakra allowing you to be kinder to yourself and overcome the critical inner voice that makes you feel not good enough. A stone to help you attract romance into your life and for those in existing relationships to strengthen trust and harmony.


Amethyst is thought to be one of the most powerful stones of protection, healing and spiritual awareness available. Guarding you from psychic attack, helping you to overcome addictive behaviours and energy blockages. Allowing you to listen to your intuition and be guided towards a spiritual outlook, a great stone for meditation giving you a more focused approach to achieve your goals.


If you are interested in crystals a wonderful alternative is my crystal healing bundle featuring Amethyst, Citrine and Rose Quartz tumblestones, a lovely collection with the addition of Citrine a stone of joy, prosperity and positivity a truly inspirational gift for any home. All available in the Crystals and kit section on the website.


Until next time, take care,


~Janice~
