The little phrase stamped into my Handmade Silver Necklace, my Power Pebble is “You got this”. This is what it means to me, and how it’s helped me through a very difficult, yet different, amazing, rewarding, completely changed, part of my life. The finish on this necklace is scratched, and I think that adds more to the piece, like not everything is perfect and shiny, so it doesn’t matter how messed up things are on the surface most of the time, “YOU GOT THIS”

Top tips to keep your handmade jewellery looking fabulous:
One of the plusses of buying good quality handmade jewellery is that it lasts. If it is cared for it will last forever. But of course everything changes over time and precious metal is no exception! Silver and gold tarnish, they get dirty, they react with strong chemicals and even sometimes change colour dramatically. Neither silver nor gold are indestructible by any means! After all if precious metal wasn’t changeable how could we fashion it into jewellery in the first place? But knowing exactly how to keep it looking good can be tricky.

Handmade jewellery is not so easy to find and finding great jewellery and buying something that's been made by hand says you put in some effort. BROWNIE POINTS! BIG ONES!
Handmade jewellery has that special touch, it says 'I bought you something unusual (because I knew you would like it)' 'I bought you something personal (because you are special)', 'I thought about you and I sought out something different (because I know you so well)'...it says you bought with care, attention to detail and love!

Jewellery is often the first choice for a special gift. It’s personal, beautiful, thoughtful. When you buy the perfect piece of jewellery, you know it. You see the sparkle in her eyes first and then the smile arrives. She might put it on straight away or carefully take it from the box and look it over, but you know when you’ve bought the best jewellery gift for Valentine’s and it’s a great feeling.
As a jeweller and a massive jewellery fan, who loves being given jewellery almost as much as making it, I think I am a good person to advise you on buying the perfect Valentine’s gift. So here’s my 5 point plan!

I’ve made jewellery to celebrate birth, symbolise marriage and honour bereavement. Jewellery marks all of our live’s landmarks and I believe it has a power all of it’s own. I love that my jewellery will be around long after I am dead and buried and it will carry it’s own story forward when I am silenced. Jewellery tells a tale.

When it comes to creative hobbies, and I’m promoting my jewellery making classes, I don’t just talk the talk. I also walk the walk. Or draw the draw. Or paint the paint. You get my drift? So most Wednesdays I toddle along to Sunny Bank Mills to Spinning Mill Life Class with the very talented Mel Davies and Kim Coley.

Mothering can come from many sources, our actual real life ‘tummy mummies’, our girlfriends, many women make up our tribe. I was very lucky to have two wonderful women supporting me throughout my second pregnancy of my lovely Arthur, my community midwife Gemma, and my inspiring doula Lindsay.
Women are amazing! So whether you are a mother or not, whether you celebrate Mother’s Day or even mourn a wonderful woman lost, let’s just take a moment to appreciate the relationships we have, and honour our many mothers.
