This week’s blog we’re taking the time to look at a few of the new arrivals in the shop. First up, it’s the riot of colour that is these earrings by new seller Coco Wild.

We also both believe that a girl can never have too many beads. As each bead is hand stitched, making the jewellery take time to evolve, we made a decision to use top quality Japanese beads, Swarovski crystals and pearls, together with semi precious stones wherever possible. Where fastenings are used, they are made from sterling silver or filled gold. Our jewellery is intended to be affordable, as well as something special to wear, that is hand made andRead More →
