Jewellery: handcrafted magic you would love

Weddings and festive occasions are round the corner, and  jewellery beckons once again! When I was growing up, attending any wedding meant, a trip to the ‘bank locker’  to retrieve gold jewellery, and after wearing and displaying it to the world,  another trip back was needed to the locker to put it all away!  Thankfully, today,  you have the power and choice to confidently select from a plethora of jewellery available, perhaps in silver, mixed metal, pearls or semi-precious styles, based on the look you are trying to achieve.

Thanks to the talented artisans and designer-makers, we have access to some beautiful, hand-crafted pieces. I absolutely am in love with silver jewellery…it’s elegant, stylish and makes me feel ‘earthy‘…do you feel that way with it too? Gold, certainly doesn’t have this effect on me; am clearly very partial to silver and sometimes, when a bit of colour is thrown alongside it,  I think it turns totally magical.

Have a look at my favourites from these amazingly talented jewellery crafters aka designers, who work their magic on silver, metals, stones and more and turn them into luxury.

Simply Silver by Neha

Neha is passionate about creating magical pieces using silver. Throws in a splash of colour now and again and merges ‘the traditional with the contemporary’ simply beautifully.  Have a peep at some of her work:

If you want to see what nostalgia looks like in jewellery, then just stop right here.  Cleverly amalgamating the old and the new, is what MaharaniBaug does best.  Look at some of their creations – we love the tribal afghani style pieces:

There is nothing better than carefully chosen hand-crafted jewellery to complete a look. Agree? Buy handmade when you can, be notjustashopper!
