Merry New Year everyone! :D

Happy New Year everyone!

I hope you had a lovely (albeit it different) festive period? Although we had planned to visit my Dad and Step Mum in Suffolk, we had to change our plans along with many others and spend it in Warrington. Luckily, we also have family living nearby so we had a socially distanced lunch with them on Christmas Day instead which was lovely.

Although 2020 was a nasty year in many aspects as I look back on all the things that happened, I decided to focus on any silver linings that appeared as a result. The main silver lining for me was that I developed my little business into a growing bigger business.

I could not have done the last one had I not been on furlough and had more time on my hands. You, my followers, have seen this journey first-hand and I wanted to say thank you again as I could not do this without you.

Another silver lining in 2020 was me being able to begin a jewellery making course sooner than I had hoped and as you may be aware, I am now launching a whole new range of jewellery in February.

As a result, and to make way for these new pieces I am having a clearance sale on all my current jewellery during January. First up is 30% off all bead rings this weekend! (Friday to Monday – excluding my new copper rings).

All you need to do is pop to my website, put the ring(s) you want in your basket and remember to add RING30 in the coupon box before checking out. If you can’t see what you’d like drop me a message about a commission.

Each weekend I’ll have a new offer so sign up to my mailing list to find out more and keep your eyes peeled to my social media to know when the offers go live.

I hope 2021 brings you lots of luck and happiness and you continue to follow my journey!

Caring for your skull jewellery

Caring for your skull jewellery in this recent hot weather comes with its problems. Sweat and suntan lotion can cause all manner of problems especially with copper which can tarnish when it comes into contact with lotions and potions and don’t even get me started on anti-bac. It’s obviously really important and great but doesn’t do copper any favours! But never fear I have lots of hints and tips on caring for your skull jewellery looking fab. My personal favourite and most miraculous one is using lemon and salt to clean copper!
