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~

Ready to post ultimate crystal healing bundle.
Ready to post ultimate crystal healing bundle.

Well I'm finally adjusting after the long dark winter and waking up and feeling awake, it's only taken me six months or so after all, just in time for the clocks to spring forward in a couple of weeks time!


What has helped me is rediscovering all my favourite crystal tumblestones that I had packed away or put up high out of reach of my little one, why have I rediscovered them now I hear you ask, well a couple of weeks ago we became the new owners of a little ginger and white kitten who loves nothing better than climbing as high as he can and trying to eat whatever he finds so I have gathered my smaller crystals and they are safe on display but out of the way of curious paws my larger crystal clusters get a sniff and then mostly ignored thank goodness so they can stay where they are!


I've been busy gathering all the necessary items to bring you specially selected healing tumblestone crystals kits and bundles, the first one I've launched is the ultimate healing crystal bundle, featuring three of the most powerful gemstones: Amethyst, Citrine and Rose Quartz. You will receive one of each inside a lovely purple velvet drawstring pouch, great for storing or carrying the crystals around with you. Include with each bundle is an information card on caring for your crystals and the specific meanings of each stone.


Each gemstone has special meanings Amethyst is a stone of spiritual awareness and intutition, with a wonderful healing energy. Citrine is a stone of joy and prosperity, helping to attract abundance and lift you up if you are feeling stressed, tired and overwhelmed. Rose Quartz is a stone of unconditional love, warmth and compassion, helping you to express your feelings and accept love.


This is a really harmonious trio, that will help you to attract and bring more joy, creativity and positivity into your life, and would make a wonderful alternative to chocolates and flowers this Mother's day (Sunday 26th March) an ideal gift at only £10 for the set.


Other bundles will be released soon, from Courage & Confidence, Abundance & Prosperity and one for meditation.
