I was shopping in the Grand Arcade in Cambridge recently and I spotted a little stall full of enticing looking things.
Little Tinkers sells all sorts of handmade and hand painted floral jewellery and the most adorable little sculpted animal necklaces and charms.
I picked out some rose earrings, a silver rose necklace, and an elephant charm for my bag. I may or may not have also bought some other items as gifts for people!
As well as having really lovely items, Little Tinkers also offers that little bit something extra in the way of service. The items were all packed into little decorated bags, and then put into one paper bag with a little chocolate inside. It made me feel really special and valued as a customer.

An email dropped into my inbox recently from a lovely lady called Kimberley Wilson. She has been making jewellery as a hobby for years and recently started selling it on Etsy. I had a quick look and instantly loved loads of her pieces, so she sent me some to try.
I picked this gorgeous purple beaded bracelet with silver butterfly charm, and these adorable little key shaped earrings*. They arrived in a cute little purple bag and within a day or two of Kimberley posting them. The jewellery is good quality and looks great on, I am really pleased with it! I honestly think it is excellent value for money too. The earrings would have been £1.50 which is crazy cheap considering you could get similar items from high street stores for three times that.
Kimberly has lots of lovely items on her Etsy store. Here are some of my favourites:
Pink Charm Bracelet
Sterling Silver Butterfly Necklace
Hot Pink Bag Charm
Bumble Bee Earrings
I really suggest you go and check out Kimberley’s store. You can also read more about her on her new blog.
*These items were sent to me to try, but all the opinions given are my own honest thoughts.
