New on rachellucie.co.uk this week is the Goddess pearl necklace and earrings. I have taken a simple design based around some beautiful large ivory freshwater pearls and given you a choice of four different semi-precious gems that you can combine them with.
You can choose from rich raspberry red garnet, royal blue lapis lazuli, beautiful cornflower blue tanzanite or subtle lemon quartz.
I think they will make ideal bride or bridesmaid's jewellery, but are classic enough to wear for any occasion.
I hope you are enjoying the new-look website. Please do get in touch if you experience any difficulties or have any feedback.
It's time to clear the decks and make way for some new designs which are being added soon, so take a look around my sale section. Being added soon will be samples and discontinued designs, all at lower than normal prices.
Mother's Day is coming up really soon, so what a perfect time to buy something special for your mum to let her know just how special she is? I am often asked to make unique versions of my designs for special occasions (or just because) and there is still just time for me to make something to suit your mum.
This is an example of a bepoke version of my Arran jewellery.
This particular version has muscovite, aquamarine, prehnite and pink opal. I think it's a great combination for spring.
What would you like me to make for your mum?
Back for another season is my Winter Forest Collection! I've loved designing this collection, inspired by the woods near my home, and entwined with the mystery and superstition the dark woods always brought in winter time.
More designs are being uploaded this week, so please keep checking or subscribe to my new handmade jewellery products RSS feed to keep you posted when the newest designs appear.
Good luck with all your Christmas shopping - and remember, if you just can't decide, you can always buy your loved one a Gift Certificate!
Summer does seem to have arrived, this year, perfectly timing for my new summer designs which I am gradually adding to my shop at the moment!
There is a new collection, Botanica, inspired by botanical illustration and the early plantsmen and explorers who brought us new plants and how some of these plants changed the whole world.
Hope you've been having a lovely break with friends and family. We have finally been treated to some lovely and longed for Spring weather here in West Yorkshire, perfect for the Easter weekend.
Here's wishing you a Happy Easter!
There are new designs on my work bench, waiting to be added to the site, see you soon :)
Things are busy around here! As a single-handed designer-maker, things can stack up and with our house improvements (allowing me the loft space to expand Rachel Lucie Jewellery) still only half finished, I feel I need to take a break from orders this week to catch up on non-business things, and get to grips with getting this years new jewellery collections finished and photographed. I have also been having supplier issues for a couple of weeks which need to get ironed out so that I can continue to give the good service you expect.
Please continue to browse and buy as normal, I know many of you are often not too worried about the timescale, knowing that everything is made by me to order. I will start posting orders starting Monday 4th March, although depending on orders, it may take a week to catch up. When your order is accepted, I will get in touch quickly and let you know when to expect you individual order during the next week.
Any questions, do get in touch.
I promise to be back with nice things to share.
I might be biased, but I don't think there can be a better message of love than giving handmade silver jewellery, the perfect gift for your Valentine...You know you are buying something unique, decadent and colourful which has been designed and created by hand just for the person you love.
I've put together a selection my jewellery to give you some ideas. Called Be My Valentine I took the romantic heart shape for inspiration, or instead you could look at any of my handmade jewellery made with pearls
Not everyone loves pearls or hearts, of course. Your loved one might prefer something a little less obvious, or it might be for a beloved friend or relative, in which case, take a look at the Jewellery Collections, or Best Selling Jewellery for more ideas.
You could always opt for a Rachel Lucie Gift Certificate, instead, great for when you just can't decide!
Happy Valentine's Day!
Happy New Year! I hope you've had a great rest and relaxation over Christmas, like me. Well, let's get the New Year started...
