NEW COLLECTION PREVIEW October 28 2016
Next month will see the launch of a new jewellery collection from A Box For My Treasure. After taking a break over the summer months for some important business (hello, baby George!), I've returned to work feeling inspired and bursting with ideas, which I've been busily channeling into the new range.
Previews of some of the pieces have been shared on Instagram over the last few weeks and here's one final preview, which I'm so excited about. The new pieces are minimal, modern, elegant and glamorous, while retaining the signature delicate aesthetic of A Box For My Treasure.
I hope you love the new collection as much as I do!

STAY GOLD October 07 2016
Custom orders are always a delight to work on and this one was especially so - personalised large gold bar necklaces for one of my oldest friends to gift her bridesmaids on her wedding day.
The necklaces feature a hand-stamped personal message with a nod to The Outsiders and the poet Robert Frost.
From celebrating friendship or a wedding, the birth of a baby, to tokens of love - every custom piece puts a smile on my face and I feel rather honoured to think that a piece of jewellery that I made plays a part in a happy moment.

APRIL INSPIRATION April 01 2016
Hello, April! I'm starting the new month with a look at what's currently inspiring me: I love using Pinterest as a way of collecting ideas, new finds and pretty images (and of course an ever growing wish list of things I want for my home).
Currently inspiring me are: water colours (Satsuki Shibuya is a recent find, who's work I adore), pastel shades and simple positive messages. High on my wish list is a woven wall tapestry...
ARIES BIRTHDAY MONTH March 22 2016
We have just entered into the birthday month for all those who fall under the Aries star sign (March 21 - April 19).

SPRING STYLE POST March 15 2016

Here's my pick of spring accessories to pair with your new season wardrobe:
Bridesmaid 'Thank You' cards March 02 2016

JEWELLERY DISHES - OUR PICKS January 15 2016
One of my favourite parts about entering a new year is the motivation to start afresh and get organised. This week I finished a big studio clear out and tidy up and I'm now looking at ways to stay organised at home.
Keeping your jewellery tidy and organised can be tricky - particularly the pieces you wear every day and take off at night before bed. With this in mind I've done a round up of my favourite jewellery trays that will solve this little storage problem, in the prettiest way.

CARING FOR YOUR JEWELLERY November 12 2015
Want to know how to keep your jewellery looking its best? With a little care your dainty pieces will stay as shiny and new looking as the day you received it.
Some key tips:
- avoid contact with perfumes, creams (apply these before you put on your jewellery) or chlorine
- remove jewellery before swimming or showering
- store your jewellery away from heat, air and direct sunlight (not on a windowsill, for example) in a ziplock bag or acid-free tissue paper.
Use the guide below to find out how best to care for your A Box For My Treasure jewellery.
Sterling silver can become tarnished and blackened when not worn and left exposed to air - this is called oxidisation. The tarnish can easily be removed with a polishing cloth and the piece restored to its shiny best. But, you can avoid this extra bit of work by storing your sterling silver jewellery in an airtight ziplock bag or in acid-free tissue paper.
Vermeil gold is a plating of gold over sterling silver and can also tarnish and become dull looking. Very gentle polishing with a cotton cloth can help to remove any marks, but take care to be extra gentle as polishing the piece too roughly can remove some of the gold plating. Storing your vermeil gold jewellery away from air, heat and sunlight in an airtight ziplock bag or in acid-free tissue paper will maintain its shiny gold finish.
Gold fill is real gold bonded with a base metal. Perfumes, creams, chlorine and water can cause discolouration or dullness - this can be avoided with correct storage and applying your perfumes and creams before you put on your jewellery. Gold fill jewellery can be gently polished with a cotton cloth.
Gemstones can fade or become discoloured when exposed to heat and sunlight - take care when not wearing your gemstone pieces to store them correctly to avoid discolouration.
