5 out of 5 stars

My beautiful bracelet arrived safely and superbly packaged. Thank you so much. I am very pleased with it and the added spacers make it look so professional. I love it! This was a custom request and the communication and fast service were much appreciated. I can highly recommend this seller. I will certainly be looking out for other pieces. Thanks once again

About

Colourful and handmade because I love it, for sale because I can't keep it all!

I am a British craftswoman combining traditional techniques with modern materials to create unique accessories for fun loving individuals looking for a cheerful splash of colour in ‘A Little Trinket’.

And not just jewellery either but the one theme you will notice is colour. I'm drawn to colour like a magpie to shiny things. Working with glass and anodised aluminium allows me to add vibrant shades to jewellery (and other items). All my pieces are intended to bring a pop of joyful colour to the wearer and a smile to the face of everyone she meets. I combine traditional (even ancient) skills like metalsmithing and lampwork (I know, the Egyptians didn't have bottled propane but otherwise, little has changed) with more modern innovations such as anodised aluminium and polymer clay. I'm not adverse to shiny either so you will see a bit of silver in the mix too.

Everything you see in the A Little Trinket store was hand crafted by me, often from sheet metal, wire or glass rods.

    Some people are drawn to shiny things, for me its colour. That's why I love working with glass, anodised aluminium, polymer clay, even fordite! If you browse around A Little Trinket, you'll see what I mean (there's some shiny silver in there too...)

I'd love to create something unique especially for you. Just get in touch and we can discuss the options.

What is Niobium?

Niobium is an element (formerly known as Colombium) which can be anodised, and therefore coloured, just like Aluminium. It is light and strong which is important for jewellery but possibly more important is that it is hypoallergenic. This makes it suitable for those with sensitivity to other metals.

What is anodised Aluminium?

Aluminium (or Aluminum if you prefer) can be anodised by submerging it in acid and subjecting to an electrical current. This results in a microscopic, almost honeycomb surface. Colour added to that surface is sealing into the chambers with heat and the result is permanently coloured metal - The colours you see on my anodised Aluminium cannot wash or rub off.
Aluminium is extremely light which makes is perfect for comfortable jewellery. It cannot be soldered, like Silver for example, so you will find items like my Pansy Stud earrings can be separated into the studs (Sterling Silver or Niobium) and the anodised Aluminium flower. This means you can wear the studs alone if you wish - two pairs for the price of one!
