Welcome to my blog.

 

This is where some of those random thoughts that wonder around my head get to escape. These posts will mostly be all things jewellery, but occasionally something else may slip in.

"I love it, but I can't afford it" is something I often hear, especially in the run up to Christmas (yes, I know it's August). I know this feeling, I've been there as well, which is why I have tried to make things easier.

Many don't know, because I don't advertise the f...

Hopefully that caught your attention. This is about a giveaway, but first I want to explain why. 

Advertising costs money, lots of money and small businesses such as myself don't have enough cash to compete with the bigger companies that spend more than my annual turnov...
