Thank you for your review. I embrace colour at all times, but especially in the summer. As the seasons change, the colours change and I always try to balance everything with a range of neutrals.

Thank you for your kind review. We have lots of new and lovely ideas for gifts, so you should be able to reduce your xmas present list. Working on a website too, so shopping can be done from afar. Hope to see you soon.

Thank you so much for your kind comments. Our website is currently just jewellery and bags, but i'm hoping by October, a comprehensive website, which reflects the shop in it's entirety, will be up and running. Hoping to see you in store again soon.
