Autumnal Turn ...

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.

 

Handmade Narnia Inspired Silver Earrings     Handmade Narnia Inspired Silver Necklace

 

My Narnia necklace and earrings have proved popular, along with the Wintergreen earrings and bracelet. By my own favourite is the Twilight bracelet and earrings.

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!

New Summer Jewellery 2013!

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!

Wild Meadow handmade vintage bracelet

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.

Handmade pearl wedding necklace

There are also a few new designs for my Vintage Wedding Collection and Songs of the Sea, so you could browse 'What's New' to see everything all in one place

Enjoy!

Renovations in progress ...

We are currently in last and most disruptive stage of Rachel Lucie HQ renovations, started 2 years ago and involving reroofing the house, converting the loft, moving the boiler and radiators and finally, now, a three bedroom swap around with full decoration.

We are squeezing every last inch of space out of our little house and home workshop to expand Rachel Lucie Designs and bring (some!) family peace. Apart from the roof and water related parts, we have done all this work ourselves, with Mr RL doing the power tool related things and now my bit - decorating every surface in sight.

I hope you'll understand that jewellery has to take a back seat for a few weeks until everything is returned to a normal, and in fact a much better state than when we started (or it will be a very poor show, won't it?). All current orders and commissions are being finished off this week, and new orders can be placed right now, as usual as long as you don't mind a longer wait than normal.

SAVE THE DATE : Back open 8th May

Please do get in touch if you want a special commission, such as for a wedding, as I will be available to email and can contact you directly to discuss your needs.

Thanks for your patience, it's much appreciated!

Happy Easter from Rachel Lucie!

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 :)

Taking a Break!

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.

Hey, 2013!

Hello and Happy New Year! 

I hope like me that you've had a lovely Christmas break. Whilst not 'at work' various parcels of the beads I have been ordering have been arriving, and I'm working on some new designs which should be ready for Spring (do you think Spring will ever arrive? It's so hard to tell at this time of year).

I'm working through all the lovely orders that came in whilst I was on my holiday, and they will be with you be the end of this week.

For anyone who bought from me during December, take a look on the back of the postcard which was in your parcel - it has a secret voucher code for 15% off ANY purchases totally £30 or over, for the whole of January! I'm pleased to see that some of you have already spotted it and taken advantage!

Here's looking forward to Spring!

Merry Christmas and Thank You!



As I finish off the last Christmas orders to post tomorrow, I just wanted to thank all my amazing customers for making this the most fantastic and busiest year for Rachel Lucie Jewellery yet!

With over 200 orders in the last month, alone, that's a lot of people who will be getting a little something from me in their Christmas stocking (only if they have been good girls, of course).

If you have bought something in the last few weeks, your parcel will have included a flyer with an exclusive code for 15% off orders over £30 for the whole of January, as a little thank you from me.

Please remember, I won't be shipping out any jewellery until the week beginning 7th January, but feel free to order before then if you don't mind a little break.

Here's to a fantastic 2013!

Oooops ...

Missed the last posting date for overseas? Many parcels do still get through in time for Christmas, although there is no guarantee, of course.

Another option is to order a gift certificate – I offer them here on my website, and I can email one to your recipient directly, leaving them to spend it at their leisure, and ensuring it WILL reach them in time. Phew, what a relief!


Here's to a stress-free Christmas!
