Love is in the air

February. That means Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and I get to show you all the LOVE-ly gifts we have for just such an occasion – sweet ! I’ve gone a bit mad on the heart theme, but these goodies are just so pretty I couldn’t resist.

First up, Jewellery – a girls best friend x

Floral Hearts in Pink, Blue and Purple – Necklace & Earrings  – Just GORrrr-juss Darling ! (said in my best Strictly voice)

Next, Tell them how you feel – with a cute and cuddle-some card. Whether you’re a love bird, love dugs or love bears, there’s a card to say how much you care.

A lovely personal gift and a truly original hand-made design to decor a small space. The Mini Originals comes gift boxed, with wooden display easel. The Mini Original canvas size is usually 70mm x 70mm and the easel is 130mm high (approx).

Scottish Elm Coptic Bound Notebooks

Back in stock ! Hand-made by Julie Durkacz, wooden notebooks with Scottish Elm covers finished with Danish oil and beeswax polish. The inner pages are made from recycled paper, hand stitched with linen thread using traditional Coptic bookbinding techniques. The pages have a luxurious feel to the touch.

I have a little A6 bound Wooden Journal which Julie made when she was working with leather, I write all my home-made recipe ideas in it, but it looks like I may soon be investing in a Coptic bound book too.

Jules Jules

Juli Miller describes her work as “a collection of ever-changing handmade pieces and collections.” Each piece of jewellery is unique, you can see the vibrance and luster of these gorgeous Strata Luna necklaces, which are made from hand cut glass which is then fired in the kiln to metamorphose into these beautiful, colorful, eye-catching creations.

pieces and collectionsJuli worked as a graphic design and then project manager for a several years, but when her path took a different turn – when a friend introduced her to fused glass making. Juli found it fascinating and decided to take a leap of faith and created Jules Jules to sell her creations to shops and galleries. That was 10 years ago. Today, Juli still enjoys every day. The company has expanded to include other lovely things Juli finds, made by great crafts people, that she can then use in the jewellery she makes.

You can find out more about Juli and her Jewellery in our Artist Interview on our website.
