Here are some current favourites.

Toggle Clasps

Focal clasps always add a statement to delicate jewellery. This clasp has a specially made setting for a Swarovski crystal of your choosing. With its modern appearance and ability to personalise, it’s easy to see why it’s one of our bestsellers.

Pastel Pearls

Pretty pastels are never out of fashion and are amazingly versatile. These gorgeous power-finish pastel pearls from Swarovski are without a doubt my favourite new product. I mixed them with Liberty of London floral ribbon for a super cute and kitsch necklace design, but the possibilities are endless.

Business Starter Kit

Handmade jewellery can easily switch from a fun hobby into a profitable business. This Business Starter Kit is crammed with beautiful beads, books, DVD’s and more to get anyone started in their new venture. Even better, it all comes packaged in a beautiful Vinegar Hill handbag!

Pom-Pom and Carnival Cord

I love festival fashion, and I make the most jewellery during the summer to complement all my favourite outfits. This Pom-Pom and Carnival Cord combo is sure to help you stand out from the crowds.

Findings Kit

All the essential materials you need to get started creating jewellery are together in this fab 400 piece Findings Kit. Take the fuss out of getting into jewellery making, or simply top up your existing stash. I’m never without one of each shade.

Swarovski Elements BeCharmed Beads

These beads add a touch of glam to any European style bracelet, including Pandora and Troll Beads. In a wide variety of styles and shapes, they make the perfect gift for anyone who loves a little sparkle.
