It’s that time of the year again. The time when we create our lists of presents to give to friends and family for Christmas. You would think that now we have the whole world at our fingertips to buy from that choosing what to get would be easier. Unfortunately, I often find that whilst fun and helping me to feel festive, I can become overwhelmed with the choice.
Let us help you by offering a choice of professionally handcrafted items from our members. In each part of this seasonal guide I will be popping over to visit each of our members and will provide for you one of their beautiful creations. You will also be able to visit them yourself and see what other wonderful things they have to offer. Don’t forget that each of these pieces is created by hand so almost all of the businesses accept bespoke orders and many can be personalised.
Buying from a small business owner will not only provide you with a thoughtfully created gift to give but also help the owner. You will be allowing them to continue to do the things they love and provide for their families. It is the gift that keeps on giving.
Buy handmade this Christmas and make the difference to everyone.
Made using delicately faceted garnet gemstones this pretty bracelet is 7½ inches in length and has been crafted with 925 solid sterling silver.

Owls. This is a gorgeous, hand embroidered wall hanging / tree decoration. Featuring my two Owls on a branch, one with a Christmas hat on and the other with a red sparkly bow in her hair. They are sitting on a branch and the holly and berries sparkly too! This Mr and Mrs Owl / love birds art work would make a great addition to your own home decor or a really special and unique stocking filler or extra gift popped in the post for a loved one. Would also make a great Christmassy / Anniversary gift. It is perfectly presented in a 3 inch wood grain effect hooped frame and backed with sparkly red felt for a really festive feel. You will love them.
