I am VERY excited about our newest products, which arrived today and are already in the shop!

Handmade by Hayley, is, as the name suggests, lovely eclectic jewellery handmade by Hayley Malcolm in the UK. She has worked in the fashion industry both here and in the US before deciding to set up on her own.

Each piece is made by Hayley herself and only a few of each are made, guaranteeing you that satisfying level of exclusivity. Every one is a mini work of art in itself, a strong statement and just the thing to brighten up an outfit. And as if that weren’t enough, the prices are very recession friendly – between £10 and £16! I’d advise you to start stocking up for Christmas now – sister, mum, best friend – who isn’t going to love these?! I can tell you they are even more gorgeous in the flesh and beautifully made as well.

Reckon this Turquoise Fun Bracelet‘ll be a bestseller…


This Indian Festival Necklace is my personal favourite.


Red and Brown Eclectic String Necklace

Ocean Bracelet by BeaucocoI have just come across this GORGEOUS ethical jewellery website! It’s called Beaucoco and sells contemporary jewellery handmade from discarded materials and sterling silver. My particular favourite is the Ocean bracelet.

On the tiny tropical island of Rodrigues in the Indian Ocean, locals transform discarded coconut shell into beautiful pieces using silver and semi-precious stones. Later this year a new range will be introduced, made by the poorest women in the slums of Delhi.

Beautiful, affordable jewellery with a heart. What more could you ask?
