I'm really excited to launch my new gemstone collection and have spent months hunting for the right mix of pieces to add to my jewellery. For years I've added gemstones to my necklaces and earrings, favouring jasper, amethyst and amazonite....
Five years ago (today - happy anniversary) we got married. We didn't blow the budget had the day we wanted and we did it all using small business who we ended up making friends with.
When it comes to weddings I truly believe that sticking with devoted, small business is the way to get great results - and to avoid being the cog in the machine. It's one of the things I love about my business and I treat each order as if it were for my own wedding day.
But it can sometimes feel scary to go independent and try the unknown supplier. So I thought I'd write a little list about our day and share some tips.
