50% off in September Sale

Incredible value!  Limited number of items available.  Save up to 50% on beautiful Flutterby Jewellery!  Well here in the Sunny South East, we have been told that today is the last day of the hot weather and apparently by next week we shall be back in our autumn coats….. how sad…. and yet, perhaps is it really so bad?  I am thinking that it will perhaps be nice to think about all things autumnal and of course the start for us at Flutterby of the fairs season.  So we shall be out and about again at a wide range of fabulous fairs which start in a week or so’s time with the beautiful event at Whittlebury in Northamptonshire.

We have spent the summer putting together a really exciting new collection.  Of course, we’re really thrilled with it and hugely looking forward to showing it to you all either in person or on our website.  However, before we do that we want to offer you some incredible savings on some of the pieces we have been enjoying selling.  There is up to 50% off a wide variety of pieces.  Stocks are very, very limited (sometimes only just one of an item is available) so we’d encourage you to have a browse and place your order quickly to avoid being disappointed.

To give you a flavour of the deals on offer: this beautiful sterling silver drop necklace with labradorite oval droplet was £88 but is now 50% off at only £44.  Complementary earrings are reduced too.silver drop

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.

A glimpse behind the scenes

Have you ever wondered how all those amazing stands at big Christmas gift show are made?  The stands last week at Spirit of Christmas looked fabulous!  The Grand Hall at Olympia was turned into a beautiful collection of boutiques where many thousands of shoppers came to do their shopping and enjoy a wonderful day.

As I am sure you’ll appreciate, these stands take many days and hours to create.  Speaking for ourselves at Flutterby, there was an enormous amount of planning involved to make our stand look a little different this year but still allow us to display our jewellery to our customers.  Lots of graph paper, MDF and paint charts!  Not forgetting the marshmallows, ever-handy staple gun and incredible DIY expert we had to help us.

Yesterday, once the last visitor had left, breakdown began and Olympia sprang into action of a different kind, with a sea of exhibitors dismantling their carefully-constructed stands, pilling everything into vans and trying to get home through the traffic.  Perhaps it is the less glamorous side to designing and selling jewellery!

A busy week, and a happy week with some fabulous neighbouring exhibitors with whom to we had a laugh and now it is onto the next show…… Mustn’t forget the marshmallows and the tree!
