My Much Loved Hobby - To A Hopefully Much Loved Business.

Hi, my name is Yvonne. I am married & live in Nottingham, Robin Hood country. I have dabbled in a few different crafts over the years, watercolour painting, knitting, cross-stitch, but my favourite has to be jewellery making. I guess my love of jewellery started as a little girl. My Grandmother lived with us & she was the one who loved jewellery. She would wear lots of sparkle, which I loved. I can remember playing being a grown up lady, sneaking in her room to borrow a necklace, clip on earrings or broach & then into my Mum's wardrobe, for shoes & handbag. Its so funny when I look back, but l guess that's how my love of Jewellery, beads & all things sparkly began. I have many fond memories of that time, & I can here their laughter at my antics as if it was yesterday. Now as I sit in my workroom designing & making my jewellery with all kinds of beads & sparkle it gives me great joy to remember both of them with each piece of jewellery I make & I thank them both for the inspiration.

Many years later, after redundancy, & early retirement I discovered a TV channel selling beads and tools to make Jewellery, so I thought I would give it a try.
I decided to attend some jewellery making workshops to learn the basics, & made a few pieces for myself & later on, I made pieces as gifts for family & friends. Then a friend asked me if I could make her some jewellery, so I did & she became my first customer. So I decided to turn my hobby into a business. Then a year later I opened my Etsy shop. My middle name is Valentina so I decided to use it as part of my shop name. I'm hoping to bring a wide range of jewellery & accessories to my shop using varied techniques & materials. Also wedding jewellery & tiaras.

All of my jewellery is handmade by myself with love, care & attention to detail & all of the gemstones I use are all ethically sourced from a reputable UK supplier who reinvest money back into the mining villages, helping the miners & their families to have better quality of life. They are also a member of ECO Watch.

My shop is fairly new so do visit again as new items will be added soon. I hope you've enjoyed your visit to Chic Valentina & reading my story.

Best Wishes

Yvonne.

How do I look after my gemstone jewellery?

Gemstones are sensitive to light, avoid leaving your items in sunlight, store in drawer or jewellery box, this will also keep them clean.

Most metals left out to the elements will tarnish over time. I advise keeping both plated & precious metals in a sealed, airtight bag with anti-tarnish tab in a drawer or jewellery box. If wearing perfume or body lotions allow them to dry before adding your jewellery. To keep your jewellery clean wipe occasionally with a soft cloth this will keep your items clean & sparkling. Using silver cleaner on plated items is not recommended.
