18th Birthday? 21st? Celebration presents?

jewellery for special gift

We all know what it is like searching for that gift for a special occasion.  You want to give something they will actually wear… not just leave in a box and not enjoy.  Here at Flutterby we spend hours researching and carefully selecting and designing pieces which we believe are classics but also wearable and fashionable classics.  Jewellery which will be well received and genuinely loved…  items that are a pleasure to give as well as to receive.  We have 14 years of experience in this …. and we love providing our clients with great value.

Take our Morton Bangle for example.  We know how much this is loved by 18 year olds as much as 40 year olds.  It has a beautiful weight, detailed design and is stylish so as to be popped on the wrist instantly and worn everyday and special enough to be treasured and appreciated for years to come.  All at the price of £60.

 

 

 

 

If you’re looking for earrings, then think about pearls.  No no, not granny’s dusty yellowing ones but beautiful drop pearls with a stunning lustre on a sterling silver hook. Classic but contemporary.  They look beautiful on an 18 year old as much as they do on a 60 year old…. they do, honestly, we’ve seen it!  Only £32.

If you’re looking for a little bit of sparkle to add a bit of pizazz to that special birthday then check out our Circle of Life necklace and all the earrings which tone so well with it.  When giving a diamond necklace isn’t an option (and let’s face it most of us can’t do that!) then this is a really beautifully made pendant with cubic zirconia stones set into a sterling silver

This necklace has proved very popular both with those clients choosing it for themselves and with those who have been given it!  It is a fabulous price at £38.

New Summer Range

Beautiful new Starfish and Fircone rings

Loving our new Summer range…. Summer is truly here and we are so excited to introduce a new range of silver rings bracelets, bangles and earrings!  These are delicate, easy to wear pieces which also make great gifts.  The polished and textured charms sit beautifully.  We are loving the little rings particularly because they are open at the front.  This means once they are yours, you can gently squeeze the silver to close it to fit.  Choose between the Starfish ring or the Fircone ring.

New Collection… New photos….

Gorgeous Green Amethyst Cara Cascade Earrings

We had a fantastic day recently taking new photos of our new Flutterby jewellery collection.  We have wanted to increase the number of pieces we are able to offer online for a while.

As you’ll know, we make so much of the jewellery ourselves, that it is tricky for us to offer bespoke pieces online as they are often ‘one off’. Now with new images and new model shots we hope that you will enjoy browsing our site and looking at the new collection which we are offering this Summer.

So what did we do?

There is always so much hard work behind the scenes in any photoshoot and alongside the cups of tea, laughter and pre-wedding banter (incredibly talented make up artist Lauren is getting married soon!) the guys took an incredible number of photos.   The day started with coffee…. and make up … and a comprehensive plan for the day so that we could get through all that we had planned…. we never thought we would!  We even managed to squeeze in taking some pictures outside on a beautiful sunny day!

One camera was then set up to take the product shots we wanted.  These were mainly of new items which are now online like the Aqua Cascade necklace .  We took photos of some of our bestselling pieces at shows which are now available online.  Have a look at the Rose star and Rose wishbone necklaces.  In the next week or so our collection will be complete and you can shop the wide range of styles at a wide range of price points – just like we offer at fairs and shows – we know you love.

So much coming online VERY soon….. just waiting for the editing to finish!  Have a little look at the videos and preview shots!

Perfect Presents for Christmas…. for under £20

You don’t need me to point out the obvious that tomorrow is the 1st of December and as well as enjoying the beautiful frosty weather and watching the opening of the first door of the Advent calendar many of us will be feeling slightly out of control at the prospect of only having just over 3 weeks before Christmas.  I don’t know how this busy time of year unfolds in your house but in mine, the idea of having plenty of time to prepare for Christmas rapidly disappears as time seems to vanish and the list of presents to buy stubbornly refuses to do the same!

Needless to say, like many others I have found that internet shopping comes to the rescue. No more queues in shops for me thank you very much… no, just a simple ‘click’ and we’re away.  I enjoy checking out small businesses much like ours to buy from.  I’m sure this is because I know how much it means when orders come through from my clients and really enjoy giving the personal service that a small business really can provide.  I’m lucky enough to have found some fantastic products and business on the fair circuit this seasons.  Millie Pink – brilliant for girls hair ties… Jam Industries is an exciting new British beach brand with shops in Salombe and Padstow – super-cool kit which make fabulous presents… are just a couple.

So for those of you who still have lists of girls to buy presents for this Christmas for we thought we’d offer something new to the website.  At Flutterby, as you’ll know, we pride ourselves on offering beautiful jewellery at beautiful prices!  You can now find online our best-selling Jilly charm bracelets – only £15.  These stunning bangles have three charms – a freshwater pearl, silver-plated heart charm and a Swarovski crystal.  As always, they will arrive beautifully gift-wrapped in a box.

If you are not after the bangle look, then check our our silver and rose Izzy bracelets.  Pretty pretty! Made of 925 silver with rose gold plating, or just silver, these are £18 and have been selling so fast at the fairs we have been at this Autumn.  We are delighted to be able to put them online now as part of the collection.

So I wish you happy shopping this December… I hope some of it will be from the comfort of your home – perhaps the harsh white frost is best enjoyed from inside?!
