Mothers Day Brooches

Good evening to everyone, I hope you are all well. I had to share our new product as it has been so popular.

Mothers Day Brooches

 Show Me

As you know we sell on our website, eBay and Etsy and as i was listing the items on each platform I had a following of orders from each, which of course is fabulous. What was so great was to take a idea, run with it and hope you guys felt the love for them that we do.

So what is it about them that we love?
We love the range of colours and the choice of beads, after all it will be given as a gift to a very special lady so it HAS to be right for them and their unique style and flair.When it comes to Mothers Day I always think back to when I was a child, the gifts that were handmade were always so popular with my Mum and Nan so that is what we have tried to create, that 'handmade gift to treasure'

We have 25 variations of this brooch so check them out on our website for further information. The brooch has been featured a lot on our Facebook page so if you would like to have a look, go check us out on the tab to the right.

We hope you all have a wonderful Mothers Day and spoil that special Mum x

We have been locked away doling an awful lot of wholesale making so have not been around much but we thought we would share this video of some of our work as everyone needs a little sparkle in their lives.
