Custom Charms

Monday once again...
I have been working on a custom charm this morning. In an effort to provide a few more ideas and a little more inspiration for anyone who may be thinking of ordering a custom made charm, I have decided to post photos of others that I have created. As I endeavor to make no two charms the same, I can reproduce a similar one but it won't be exactly the same.
When ordering a custom charm there are several things to consider.
What colours does the person like to wear, what size (smaller or larger and shape) , what do they like , e.g., travel themes, flowers (what type), birds, buildings, patterns, books, their own photo etc, and do they have a favourite saying, verse or quote or maybe they would rather have their initial, name or children's names? 
That's just a few things to keep in mind. If it is all too tricky, you could give me some clues and I could certainly come up with the design for you. I also have a charm price and size list that I can email to you if you would like one.

If you would like to order a custom charm or you would like me to send you the price list please feel free to email me.
I had better get back to some charm making- the shop is looking a little bare : )
Have a happy week,

 I have some very special charms today. These are made with some of my new glass domes. They are about 1 inch/ 25mm in size and contain a beautiful flourished letter from an old book and are backed with a piece of 100 year old French newspaper- "Le Petit Journal". 
These charms are $28 each or $62 with a 70cm sterling silver ball chain.
I also have a T, W, L and J in the making.

Shop News

Hi everyone. What a crazy few days I have had! I think there are going to be some very lucky mums tomorrow.
I wanted to let everyone know that I will be away this coming week but I will be back in the shop Sunday week. In the meantime, trading hours will be as normal and I have left the shop in the capable hands of my daughter-in-law, Chiara, for Thursday and Friday and my daughter, Erica, for the following Saturday (and tomorrow). They will be able to take charm orders if need be : )
Have a happy week....I know I will!

Silver Wax Seal Charms Back In

 Hello everyone! What a beautiful day to wake up to today here in Cabarlah. I don't think the weather could be any more perfect. 
Just a quick note today to let everyone who has ordered Plum and Posey wax seal necklaces know that they have arrived and will be available from Thursday when the shop doors are open next.
I do have some extras and for anyone who is not familiar with them, a very lovely lady from Canada creates these using her wax seal stamp collection.

 Each letter is made from fine silver (99.99% pure silver) and comes on a sterling silver chain.


They would make an ideal gift for Mother's Day.

Magical Cloches

 There's something so magical about cloches. I've recently had a lot of customers wondering how to use their cloches. Oh the possibilities are endless. Whether it's covering a vase of garden flowers, a cute cupcake on a stand, french soaps, a collection of linen remnants or a collection from nature , a cloche always adds a touch of magic. I currently have two sizes available- small for $18 or large for $45.

As Monday is a public holiday, the shop will be open 9am to 4:30pm.
A happy week to all, Angela.

Palas letter charms back in stock

 I am happy to say that I have just had a delivery of the very popular Palas letter charms and a few little extras. Palas charms are made from brass, bronze and sterling silver. I think they are one of the few jewellery lines in my shop that may just satisfy my ladies that prefer gold.
 I now have all letters again....thank goodness...
 and these lovely glass bead and world coin bracelets but stock is limited so if you would like one you will have to get in quick!
Don't forget, it's not long until Mother's Day - Sunday the Thirteenth of May.
