A chance to get organised for milestone birthdays early
If you are anything like me, you find the traditional January message of ‘new year – new you’ a bit much. Each to their own but going on tasteless diets and punitive new work out regimes does not appeal to me! So my plan is to be gentle with myself. This is the time to nourish not punish, and to ease into the year.
However, as the owner of a small business and a mum, I do use January for some much-needed
inventory, stock taking and planning. In these early weeks of the new year, I go over what worked
well last year and what needs tweaking, check that my business dates such as fairs don’t clash with
important family events and in general get ‘my ducks in a row’ (as much as this is possible in these
unprecedented times). Running a small business is a roller coaster ride at the best of times, but the
last couple of years have really been an adventure both in the best and worst sense of the word. So
being as organised as I can be, gives me peace of mind and space to breathe (as well as an
opportunity to break in my shiny new planner).
In order to help you getting organised for the year ahead I am offering a wee discount on my popular
sterling silver milestone bangles and necklaces. Have a big birthday coming up this year? Make sure
you don’t experience any last-minute gift panic and instead look forward to the celebration. There is
little as delicious as that slightly smug feeling of knowing you are all set. Leave the lycra and kale
brigade in the dust knowing that your list has been all ticked off! Happy New Year!
One aspect of jewellery that I’ve always loved is its inclusivity. In contrast to fashion, jewellery (putting cost to the side for moment) has always been accessible to everyone, regardless of physical factors such as clothes size or skin colour. A great piece of jewellery can take us through the decades, be handed on to loved ones and live many a life. Add sustainability to the reasons I love what I do!
However, sizing does matter when it comes to bangles and bracelets. My bangles come with a standard diameter of 6.5cm which fit most wrists comfortably and the bracelets standard size is 19cm. As all my pieces are hand crafted, I can easily adjust the sizing if needed. Buying online always comes with the risk that a piece does need altered after purchase and I am happy to do this free of charge at any point so you can always shop with confidence.
If you want to check which size might be best for you before buying, you can do so two ways:
1 – Measure an existing bangle that fits you well
Simply measure the internal diameter (across from one side to the other straight through the middle of the bangle) making sure you measure from the inside of the bangle and not the outer edge.
2 – Measure your hand with a tape
Bend your thumb as far as possible into your hand. The kind of position you would put your hand into if you were putting a bangle on, with the thumb reaching toward the little finger.
Then wrap a measuring tape tightly around the widest part of your hand. It is important to not take a loose measurement here, as you are finding the smallest size you can make your first into.
If you find that your measurement is a lot smaller or bigger than 6.5cm simply get in touch and I can custom make a bangle that fits you perfectly.
Welcome to my new website!
Well the new site is finally here, and I think it’s looking pretty good!
I hope you enjoy browsing, there are lots of new pieces I’ve been creating and saving for the launch.
As always, if you have any questions or would like a custom item please do get in touch.
