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!

Talking of aqua – check out our gorgeous Iona rings.  These stunning rings are made of 925 silver with excellent quality gold plate and a fabulous central aqua stone.  They make me think of a glass of something lovely, warm sunshine and looking out at the sea.

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?!

Autumn Fashion on its way

I am sure I am not the only one whose inbox is updated daily with emails of tempting photos of gorgeous new Autumn clothes from my favourite shops.  Although I am still firmly wedded to my flip flops and summer dresses – despite the odd windy rainy August day (!) I must confess to having clicked on the ‘view new collection’ buttons and started thinking about Autumn fashion… new jackets, new boots and definitely something new in the fabric that seems as though it will be making big splash this forthcoming season… velvet.  Textured fabrics – I love them!

It seems as though we shall still be treated to some gorgeous neutral and earthy tones and that we won’t have to say ‘goodbye’ to our beloved greys just yet – yippee! Accent colours of blues but also raspberry/deep pink seem to be popular.  It seems too as though that ‘go to’ piece – the ever faithful cardigan – will continue to be a staple in many of our Autumn 16 wardrobes.  Long gone are the days when it was crocheted, knitted preserve of the homespun!  I’ve seen them out there with zips and long hem gathers, waterfall and sleeveless, cropped and asymmetric lines.Lexi link S&G web v2Rose Studs

From a jewellery point of view of course the possibilities are endless…. just what we like!  This season statement earrings continue to hit the headlines and we always love offering you a beautiful collection of these.  However much we adore this style though, it is not every day that we all want to wear something long and dangly so Flutterby Autumn16 will still offer you a wide range of affordable stylish everyday studs.  For example look at the beautiful simplicity of the rose gold studs – perfect with those natural tones I was mentioning earlier.

IMG_1759The cuff is back this season and we have two beautiful leather cuff bangles to show you.  Not a thick chunky cuff which can limit your other jewellery options but these are made of stunning metallic leather which can be worn together or with other pieces.  I have been wearing the silver coloured one next to my many other silver bracelets and received many compliments.  It is a stunning piece and will be available on our website for only £35… they are hard wearing too!

IMG_1758Many of you loved our trio bracelet last season.  Three strands of soft leather linked together with a simple twist magnetic clasp.  Autumn 16 sees the broadening of this collection into three colourways.  A stunning neutral mix – where the leather feels almost like suede on one strand and a grey blue colour blend.  Each will be on our website soon for £30 each.  But if you can’t wait and would like one now then please just email us at info@flutterbyonline.co.uk or call me on 07890 348196.

So whilst it is still very much summer in my house a little shopping to soften the blow of the start of autumn always goes down well.  There will be more fashion to come.. both out there on in our favourite shops and boutiques but also from Flutterby so keep an eye out and enjoy putting together your autumn wardrobe!

Summer Sunshine

Well it is here – we never know how long for – but Summer has arrived and we all try to find time to kick back, forget about the serious side of life and enjoy a bit of a break, whether it be a holiday abroad, a day on the coast in the beautiful UK, or just for an evening over a drink outside with some friends – I don’t think much beats the English Summer.

Inspired by this we have named one of our new pieces the Flutterby Sunshine necklace…. sounds a bit twee perhaps, but these lovely pendants  – available in either silver or gold – with a stunning semi precious stone accent – look fabulous be it with a kaftan in Keffalonia, or a t-shirt  on the beach in Cornwall.  We sell them on lovely long chains but you can rethread them onto your own shorter chain should you wish – or call us on 07890 348196 and we can pop a short chain in that instantly recognisable Flutterby box with that pink ribbon for you at a very reasonable price.

So here’s wishing you all a very happy summer… may it be full of fun, laughter and all good things that make wonderful memories.
