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.
A new collection of my jewellery is available to buy in Heart Gallery, Hebden Bridge as part of the 'I Do' Wedding Exhibition.
With this being the 4th year of the exhibition, this is becoming a must-see event for brides looking to style their wedding in a unique way.
Here's a little snap of my work:
Why not pop along to the opening this Sunday 12-4pm?
Here's a little look at last week's best-sellers on rachellucie.co.uk:
Things are hotting up for summer, and I'll be back soon when summer designs are ready!
In the meantime, you can keep up to date with what I am up to on my blog.
Or you can sign up for my mailing list.
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!
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.
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!
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!
My last ordering date this Christmas will be Wednesday 19th December, with all orders posted by Thursday 20th December.
I will be taking a break over Christmas, with the next posting date will be Monday 7th January 2013.
Please continue to order as normal during this time, but be aware that no items are being made or dispatched between 21st December - 7th January.
