It’s been a busy month at Scarlett HQ!

This summer at Scarlett has been an extremely busy one with lots of new and exciting things on the horizon! We know summer isn’t over just yet, but Christmas is just around the corner and there’s lot to do so we have been putting the finishing touches to some wonderful festive ideas.

Stevie has been focusing on our photo shoot that we did earlier in the month with our lovely photographer Rory and model Jessica. This was incredibly exciting for us because we haven’t done a model photo shoot in a while and we couldn’t wait to get some amazing photos to show off our jewellery to the world! They will soon be ready to get up on the website and we hope you agree that they are rather lovely.

Stevie-and-Laura
Laura has been as busy as ever working away in the workshop to make lots of gorgeous pieces for customer orders. We also have a couple of shows coming up so she has had to make plenty of jewellery for us to sell at those. Burghley Horse Trials is at the beginning of September and we can’t wait to see some of our equestrian loving customers there! Then we are exhibiting at the Weald of Kent Craft & Design show and Laura will be there showing off her jewellery making skills to the visitors. If you are going to either of these, come and say hello!

Jenna has been getting wonderfully creative (as ever!) and has been designing new packaging for some of our best selling products. Sometimes you need a bit of a change and we think these new ideas will definitely add something really special to a meaningful gift. She is currently still working on them but they include the Que Sera collection and the Mojo’s! Keep an eye out because they will be ready very soon…

Jenna-and-Chloe
Chloe has been sending out lots of orders to our lovely customers as always and she has also been putting together our new clearance offers. We now have lots of new products in our clearance section at seriously discounted prices so grab something while you can! Chloe also did the styling for our photo shoot and chose some lovely clothes for our model to wear.

We have also welcomed a new addition to our team this month which is very exciting! The lovely Annika will now be dealing with our stock management and making sure we have enough of everything we need.

Annika

So as you can see August has been quite a month for us and no doubt September will be the same! We’re so excited by all our new developments and can’t wait to show them off to you…

Kerry’s top picks for her big day in August…

headerAndy and I met in August 1998 as we were both working part time as bartenders in the same pub. We got on famously and spent the next seven years as great mates, often room mates and seeing girlfriends and boyfriends come and go over the years. Little did we know but we each secretly fancied the pants off one other but were too afraid of rejection and potentially ruining such a great friendship for either of us to say anything!

Fast-forward to December 2005 and late one night, after many glasses of wine, I made a move on Andy and to my surprise (and huge relief) my feelings were reciprocated and there began our romance! We admitted to each other how we felt and now, nearly 10 years later we’re finally getting married! And to make this day even more special for both of us, our 6 year old daughter gets to enjoy it with us as our bridesmaid.

I had no idea quite how much was involved in planning a wedding  – so much to think about and organise. But thankfully, I only needed Scarlett to help me with my wedding gifts. We knew that the style of Scarlett jewellery and the fact that we could get things personalised was perfect for the style of our wedding…

dividersomething_blueScarlett’s ‘Something Blue’ is perfect as a treat for myself and ticks that ‘something blue’ box nicely. It will be engraved with our wedding date and sewn into my wedding dress for the day and then made into a necklace afterwards with a silver chain. Now I just need to think of something old, new and borrowed in the next few weeks.

Although I’m not wearing it on the day I’ve also bought the Spoons Family Necklace to signify the three of us, our perfect little family.

girlsFor my bridesmaid I chose a Silver Mojo Heart Necklace with a Brighton Rocks mojo for my maid of honour. We met 15 years ago in Brighton and our reception is at Brighton Rocks Bar so what a perfect gift!

For my flower girl i’ve chosen a Tiny Charm Friendship Bracelet with a cupcake charm for our daughter to thank her for being our bridesmaid. I expect she will probably spend most of the wedding reception guarding (or eating) the tower of cupcakes we’re having as a wedding cake! Hopefully when she wears it the cupcake will remind her of our wedding day when I finally go the same surname as her.

boys

For the groom i’ve had some silver wedding cufflinks engraved with our wedding date. He has no excuse not to remember anniversaries now!

Best men are hard to buy for and we wanted to get something personal for each of them. So we have chosen Silver Tie Clips with their initials engraved on. Simple, elegant and a special reminder of our day.parents
The perfect gift for mum was a Personalised Pebble Necklace with her initial on it. It’s not only a gorgeous piece of jewellery but we’ve included the pebble theme in our wedding as Brighton is famous for its pebble beach, so this will serve as a special reminder of our day too.

My dad has always worked hard and been so generous that we wanted to get him a Personalised Money Clip so he knows we are grateful for all his support – financial and otherwise!

personalised_cards

I also was able to add the finishing touch to my gifts with a Personalised Wedding Card, which meant I could cross something else out on my never ending list!

We want to say a big thank you to you, Scarlett Jewellery, for helping us tick our wedding gifts box in one fell swoop! And the great choice means each item has a personal meaning for our guest.

We’ve Got Her Something Blue…

Whatever thoughtful pieces the bride gets for her something old, her something new and her something borrowed, we have her Something Blue covered. Here at Scarlett we have the perfect keepsake to bring her luck on her wedding day and to then treasure forever.


Our  Something Blue tag can be personalised with a special message chosen by you. It’s then mounted on a quality, handmade to order card for you to write your own personal note to the bride- to-be. It’s designed to be sewn into her wedding dress and afterwards the silver tag can be made into a necklace for a cherished memento of the best day of her life.

something_blue_images

Whether it be the date of the wedding, the bride’s new surname or a personal message you know she will appreciate, the engraving is up to you. Here in the workshop we made one for our lovely Jenna when she got married, engraved with ‘Bella Sposa’ which means ‘Beautiful Bride’ in Italian, as she got married in Italy, and the date of her wedding. She now wears it all the time as a beautiful, bespoke necklace, a precious piece of jewellery she treasures. Got a wedding to go to? Why not take a look at all our wedding gift ideas here

Inspired By The Language Of Flowers…


Our designer Sarah stumbled across an old floriography dictionary whilst visiting her Grandmother as a child.  Fascinated by old papers and family letters, she often rummaged through her Granny’s desk where she happened upon this tiny little book.

It was a delightful find for a child – small enough to hold, a magical slightly dog-eared treasure which much later became the starting point for Scarlett’s much loved flower charm collection.

Every silver flower charm has its own meaning, inspired by the Victorian Language of Flowers.  The art of floriography was like a secret code between the reserved Victorians under the reign of Queen Victoria, enabling them to express innermost passions through plants and flowers.  A posy became a coded message of love deciphered using one of the many floriography dictionaries of the day.

charms charms_1 The collection includes a Forget-Me-Not charm, Daisy charm, Buttercup charm, Bluebell charm, Poppy charm and Lily Of The Valley charm and they each come with their own special meaning card, see more here

Graduation Day – Make It A Day To Remember…

headerIt’s that time of year again when students have a big sigh of relief as all of their hard work pays off and they get to graduate. At times it feels like that day will never come, especially when you’re looking at a pile of text books that are the same height as you and you still have 50,000 words to go. But eventually it does and that day marks such a poignant time in your life.

The graduation day itself is a bit like the icing on the cake. You have done all of the hard work and received your degree classification, you just need to top it all off and make it ‘official’. For most graduates the day will involve celebrating with their family and friends who they have spent their journey with. It can be quite an emotional day as you are saying goodbye to that amazing time in your life and starting the next chapter. But whatever the day involves, you have to make the most of it as it really is a day you will remember for the rest of your life.

graduation_gifts_2015

A graduation is one of life’s milestones and a piece of jewellery is the perfect gift to give to someone for them to treasure for years to come. Whenever they look at that special piece, they will think about that day, the hard work and how proud the people in their life are of them. It could be a classic mortar board charm that can be added to a charm bracelet full of memories. Or a personalised milestone necklace, perfect to put your own message to wish that special person luck in their future endeavours. We also have so many Mojo charm beads with perfect messages on for such an occasion, like ‘Believe & Dream’ or ‘You’re a Star’.

Whatever graduation gift you choose and whatever you do on that day, make sure you make it memorable one.
