It's July!

Posted on 3rd July 2017 by Hayley & Lucas

Hello July! 

Can't quite believe it's already July!  We've got a very exciting month ahead as we are expecting our second child towards the end of the month. We're hoping he or she will make their appearance this month, and if they do they will be lucky to have the radiant ruby as their birthstone! 

Before baby does make their appearance we've got a long list of projects to get finished/started this month, including working on some really beautiful new pouches, loads of new makeup bags, embroidered t-shirts and hopefully some pretty snazzy holographic prints! 

July birthstone - ruby

If a friend or loved one is celebrating a birthday this month then why not check out our ravishing ruby pouch! Makes the perfect little gift, especially when stuffed with their favourite treats or sweets! Can be used as a makeup bag, pencil case or handy coin purse. Take a closer look here.

July ruby birthstone enamel pin

Our ruby design is also available as a beautiful little enamel pin. Made from high quality hard enamel and copper toned metal with sparkly red glitter. Our sparkly and colourful birthstone pins are sweet little jewels that will jazz up any outfit or accessory! Take a peek here

Wishing you all a very jolly July!
