I was buying gifts for others and this came along for me! Love the look of the rose gold and the simplicity of this necklace, and I love that it was available in a longer length for layering! Another winner from littleglamour! Thank you!

I ordered from littleglamour a while back, and came back for more. This mini bean is so sweet and dainty, I bought two as gifts! Customer service was excellent, just like last time, and FAST: Items were ordered Sept. 9, delivered Sept. 17. LOVE!

I have always been a creative person, but never dreamed that I would turn that passion for creating into a business. After I had a baby, I needed a change. I was tired of the commute through the city and the stress of my job. Between the encouragement of a dear friend who had also started her own successful business, a home jewellery party I attended, and a little bit of luck and a lot of support from my family....I decided to take the leap.
LittleGlamour began in 2009 as a simple desire to stay home with my son and take control of my life and became full-time early in 2012 . My philosophy has been pretty straight forward since the beginning: make simple, beautiful jewellery that can be worn everyday. This shop is a true one-woman show. I go shopping for pretty materials; experiment with designs; transform my components into the finished piece; and take care of the shipping, bookkeeping, office tasks, product photography, social media updates, and more. As often as I can, I take new classes so I can bring you unique pieces...my latest is lost wax casting of sterling silver (so cool!). I love what I do, and I'm so grateful for the support I've gotten. Sometimes it gets a little crazy around my studio, but I wouldn’t give up being my own boss for anything.
Each LittleGlamour piece is uniquely beautiful, and minor variations may occur which is part of the charm of buying handmade! I combine quality components to make simple, beautiful, affordable jewelry. Several of my items are limited editions....but if you see something in my "sold" section that you love - send me a message and perhaps I can create something for you! Everything is made by me in my sun-filled studio - perhaps you are looking for a delicate gold necklace, a pair of classic sterling silver earrings, or a gemstone beaded bracelet for a special occasion. Most of my jewelry is made to order....I think there is something incredibly special about having a piece made just for you and in the perfect length :)
In 2013, we left the busy city and moved 2 hours north of Toronto to a small community on the shores of Georgian Bay. My commute is now from the bedroom to my studio (with a view!) down the hall. I spend all day making beautiful jewellery that I sell around the world. I'm home to see my son off to school and I'm home when school is over. Weekend beach barbecues with friends, chilly winter hikes, watching the wildlife in our backyard, and time spent with family are just a few of the things I like to do in this bountiful wonderland. I am grateful for everything life has brought me, and I continue to be thankful for each and every day.

I live/work in Penetanguishene...a stone's throw from the shores of Georgian Bay. When I'm not making jewelry, I'm at the beach, cooking up a storm, giggling with my bookclub...or playing with my 6-year-old son, husband and dog in our forest!

Ok - this is not a real person....but this is my happy place that I wanted to share! I go up to my cottage northeast of Toronto when I need some time to rejuvenate....and I always bring my sketchbook with me because I get some of my best ideas there!

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
US orders ship once a week via USPS First Class (orders generally leave my studio in Canada on Tuesday - with arrival at their final destination in the US on Saturday or Monday - I use a courier service to take them across the border which adds 2 days transit time but is still quicker than via Canada Post and they are now trackable!) - Canada/International orders ship Monday to Friday via standard Canada Post mail (expedited/tracking available as a shipping upgrade at checkout). I always ship to your Etsy address so if you'd like me to send it to your summer home in Florence or penthouse on Fifth Avenue, please let me know.
GIFT PACKAGING: Your jewelry will come wrapped ready to give as a gift (or keep all to yourself) and shipped in a protective envelope. If you'd like me to add a handwritten note please let me know in the "Note to Seller". I can also ship directly to the recipient! *If you are buying more than one item and need them individually wrapped - please let me know at checkout - otherwise they will be packaged together.*
MISSING PACKAGES: Shipping times can vary greatly. Please contact me if you haven't received your package in Canada/the U.S. within 4 weeks of shipment date, and within 6 weeks of shipment date for international packages. Though it does not usually take that long, packages have, on rare occasions, had an exceptionally long delivery time - especially around holiday season.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Buyers are responsible for any and all customs charges, duties, taxes & additional postal fees. In order to reduce paper waste, I do not include receipts in your package - you can print them from your own Etsy account if you wish.
Refunds and Exchanges
REFUNDS: If for any reason, you are not satisfied with your jewellery, you may return it for a refund, minus the cost of shipping. You must contact me within 14 days of receiving your purchase in order to receive a refund - after that I am happy to issue a store credit. Items must be in original packaging and unworn - please contact me first for return address details.
All personalized jewellery/sale/ready to ship is final sale. If you have purchased a necklace and it is too short - I recommend an extender chain that you can use with all your necklaces (available in my shop)! If you would rather return it to exchange for a larger size there will be a $5 processing fee + materials and shipping charges. Please check your chain length prior to ordering, standard lengths may be shorter or longer than your personal preference.

✩ Gold Filled/Gold Vermeil (Yellow & Rose Gold) ✩
To prolong the life of your jewellery, do not wear your gold filled or gold vermeil jewellery in the shower, or when swimming, exercising or sleeping. Also do not use jewellery cleaning substances on your gold filled or gold vermeil jewellery, as the gold layer may eventually wear away. Minimize your jewellery's contact to chemicals (lotion, hairspray, bleach, perfume, etc.) to best maintain its shine. To store your gold filled/gold vermeil jewellery, wrap clean, dry jewellery in a dry, soft cloth and keep items separate to prevent tangling and scratching. To clean, mix mild soap, a drop of ammonia, and warm water. Gently swish the jewellery to clean, and then gently blot dry with a soft cloth (non-abrasive), and let it dry thoroughly. You can also use the yellow polishing cloth every once in a while - just don't rub too hard! Gold filled components contain 100 times more real gold than gold plated components and are very durable and tarnish resistant. Gold vermeil and rose gold is sterling silver coated with real gold. These are a beautiful, affordable alternative to solid gold, and can be worn by people with sensitive skin.
✩ Sterling Silver ✩
The best way to prevent tarnishing (oxidation) when not wearing your sterling silver jewellery is to store your clean, dry pieces in a dry, airtight container and keep items separate to prevent tangling and scratching. Avoid leaving your jewellery in the bathroom, as the moisture will speed up the oxidation process. Minimize your jewellery's contact to chemicals (lotion, hairspray, bleach, perfume, etc.) to best maintain its shine. To clean your sterling silver jewellery, use mild soap and water, a sterling silver polishing cloth, or a sterling silver jewellery cleaning solution. If using a cleaning solution, be careful to follow the directions and don't leave the jewellery in for too long. Make sure to let your pieces dry thoroughly before storing them.
✩ Raw Brass ✩
Raw brass brightens up quickly if you rub with lemon & water then rinse. You can also use brass cleaners sold in drugstores (I keep a lemon water spray bottle handy). All raw brass, like silver, will darken if not cleaned (this depends on the air & body chemistry) but customers often enjoy the antiqued look.
✩ Gold or silver plated letters/charms ✩
Do NOT scrub plated components or use jewellery cleaner. To prolong plated components wash gently with a mild dishwash liquid & water. Lasts much longer if cared for.
✩ Pearls/gemstones/evil eyes ✩
You can soak pearls in warm water with a drop of dish soap. Rinse well and lay on a soft towel to dry. Freshwater pearls and certain gemstones are very porous and you should not dip them in cleaner as it will destroy the lustre of the pearl or stone. Emeralds, onyx, opals, and turquoise are best cleaned with plain water and a very soft brush. Be sure to dry and polish with a soft clean polishing cloth. Make sure to put them on LAST when you are getting dressed (perfumes, hair spray, etc. can be damaging) and store dry in a closed container. You can also take your piece to a professional jeweller to be cleaned.
