Stay and make my heart fly.

I’ve been quietly busy behind the scenes for some time now, working on a not-so-secret project which I've hinted about a few times. It’s finally ready to take public though, so I present to you… LOTS OF PRETTY JEWELLERY.

I’ve had an Etsy shop for a while now, but I haven’t had the time I would have liked this year to spend on it, so have given it a total revamp. I’ve moved its location, redone all the photography and added loads of new designs.

When I go shopping, I’m a fussy girl. My most common phrase is ‘That would be really nice if…’ and it’s the main reason I started making jewellery as a hobby, so I could create bespoke pieces that were exactly what I wanted. It’s such a useful skill to have! I can fix broken pieces and amend others to my spec. And now, I can share it all with you. Everything on there is handmade by me, and it’s all really reasonably priced. I’m really excited to start the shop up again – hopefully there will be some pieces in there that will appeal to you ladies, too. Oh yeah, and, um, isn’t Christmas coming up? *ahem cough cough cough*

If you buy anything on my shop before December 15th, you will receive 10% off.
Just quote ESSBEEVEEISAMAZE at checkout!


To celebrate the launch of the shop I’m doing a giveaway too! You could win all of the jewellery featured in this post!! To enter, all you have to do is…

Yep – I’m going to make you work for it! I am useless with names and I’m sure you creative bunch can think of something! Here's the rules:

- leave a comment to this post with your name, blog URL & twitter username if you have them, and your suggestion!
- follow this blog via Google Friendconnect or Bloglovin’

I'll also send out a second prize of specially chosen bits to someone picked at random so don't fret if you think your entry is rubbish (I'm sure it isn't!). Just make sure you comment as above and for an extra entry, RT this message on Twitter: @essbeevee is having a jewellery giveaway! Name her Etsy shop to win:

All entries must be in by November 30th and I’ll post the winner that week!

And one more time for good luck - here's the link!


  1. Wow, what a great competition! I really love those little teapot earrings! Ummmm, I would give your shop a similar name to your blog. If you were a vintage seller I'd go with something like EssBeeVintage, but you make your own stuff so mayb ShopBeeVee?

    Actually no, I'd go for something completely different like 'Tiny Teapots' because it's totally random and would make people go 'what on earth is that?!' and then look and buy loads of stuff!

  2. those little keys make my heart melt! :) really lovely jewellery miss, youre such a talented lady. I am completely rubbish at naming things, hence not entering but I cant wait to see what the winning name is! :) xx

  3. The key necklace is soooo lovely. Eek, wonder if I can afford one from December's budget? Shall do the sums when I get paid.

    I am atrocious of thinking up names for things. I'd definitely go for something a bit quirky and descriptive of the overall theme of your stock. From these pics it looks quite fairytale/nature so perhaps something along those lines? Once Upon A Time would be fab - endless possibilities, plus a hint of vintage!

  4. ps - I fail at reading competition rules!

  5. What lovely little pieces! They are so sweet, I would love to win them.
    I was thinking a name like LotsOfPrettyThings or SweetLittlePieces.

  6. I'm rubbish at names so I'll go away and have a Really Big Think, but I just wanted to express my excitement for the reopening of your shop, I love it!


  7. The jewelry looks great. I'm pretty good at coming up with names, but haven't formed one yet. The word that is coming to mind is "trinkets". I've retweeted to get you more suggestions!
