Spooky Season Skull Jewellery Update

Hello! It’s been a couple of months since I last wrote because, as you may have seen on my social media, I have had a little break over the summer. I took time to rest, relax and enjoy some me-time with (literal!) Self-care. I managed to have a quiet weekend away in Whitby and catch up with some friends and family.

Have you ever had days where you feel like what you’re doing isn’t working? Maybe it’s a job you’re doing that you no longer love? A relationship that isn’t fulfilling you like it used to? Perhaps it’s realising the seasons are changing and you need to as well?

Quickly I realised it’s important (and OK) to take a break every now and then to get some perspective. It helps to identify what’s still working and what isn’t and then make changes. During my break moments of self-doubt about my products gave me some perspective on what I was doing and where I was going with my business. 

I’ve decided I want to evolve my skull jewellery pieces so as a result I start a silversmithing course this week to learn how to use metals to make my skull jewellery. I look forward to sharing my new journey with you over the next few weeks both on my blog and social media.

In the meantime, Autumn and Halloween are fast approaching and my skull jewellery is perfect for this spooky time of year. Whether you love alternative jewellery all year round or you want skull jewellery to go with your Halloween outfit click on the shop button below to find that perfect item. 

Finally, I’m going to be releasing some special offers over the next few weeks so do watch out for those discounts.

That’s all for now as I’m off to dig out a warm jumper, have a cuppa and think about putting the heating on!

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!
