Make A Wish…

As someone who loves a huge acrylic statement necklace (Prue Leith has nothing on me) I surprised myself this week when I fell in love with our new range of jewellery. Showy and shouty they are not – Timi of Sweden produce beautiful, delicate pieces and our new delivery is a super sweet selection of their wish bracelets.

TIMI are a new brand to us and we are delighted by the love our fab customers have already shown for the collection. The company creates a mix of youthful, happy and fun accessories packed with unexpected details and was founded by fun loving fashion enthusiasts. At the moment we stock their Make A Wish bracelets but are looking to extend the range to pins and necklaces. They are beautifully packaged on individual cards and make lovely gifts.

The tie part of the bracelet is made from 100% silk cord and attached is a beautifully made charm made from either silver or gold plated brass. There are so many different styles to choose from – geometric shapes, nature, animals, hearts and they look great alone or as a stack of 3 or 5 (I can only do things in odd numbers, always looks better!)

The idea is to make a wish as you tie them on and over the months of wear, the silk will disintegrate slowly and once the bracelet finally falls off your wrist, your wish will come true. Once off you can always tie another piece of cord to the charm or just add them to an existing piece of jewellery so you can continue to enjoy them (this will not affect your wish, I promise.)

As usual, my dilemma is just which ones to go for – way too much choice! Don’t wait too long to come and have a look, I expect they will be very popular over the coming weeks…

Welcome Våga Jewellery

Oh finally, after years of thinking about it, we have dared to introduce jewellery. And what a fantastic brand to try it out with. Våga (Swedish word for dare) is a Swedish brand established in 2007 by two cousins with an eye and passion for classic designs with a little twist. They create lovely designs full of fun as well as simple and yet bold. All jewellery is nickel and led free.

I am delighted to be able to introduce their brand to our little shop. It sure makes the shop look very lovely and after years of supplying the lovely jewellery trees from Pluto Produkter it is nice to fill them with stunning necklaces and bracelets.

It is a bit tricky with jewellery, mostly since it is very rare I wear any myself. Wore a lot as a teenager, especially big earrings and had a thing for pearls. These days nothing, well one ring, my engagement ring. Not even a watch any more since I always have my phone with me. Why no jewellery? Well I like to blame it on the girls, but that is not an excuse really! You can still look smart even though you have children! Guess I just got used to not wearing any, but I think it is time for a little change. Am kind of in love with these bracelets and love the simplicity of the tiny heart necklace as well as some of the more chunky statement necklaces. Yes it is definitely time for me to start wear more jewellery.

Thank you Våga for making me dare something new! Hope you enjoy them too.
