Buy Handmade | Jewellery

I am a big supporter of buying handmade. Not only do you get something unique that has been lovingly made with care and attention, but you are also supporting the person that has designed and made it, rather than giving your money to big multinational chains!

Sometimes Topshop has exactly what you want (and need!), but when you walk out to see someone else wearing the exact same thing you've just bought, it kind of takes the shine off it, so buy handmade instead and brighten up someone’s day by buying their work. (And then wait a few days and have your own day brightened when you receive it in the post! Or if you are feeling particularly generous, buy something handmade and give it to someone else as a gift! Happy faces all round!)

Here are some lovely handmade pieces of jewellery to inspire you to make a purchase, and all for under £20! Go on, treat yourself!
