On my recent trip to the Handmade Fair I was lucky enough to meet up with Vicky who runs a business making handmade jewellery. Vicky and Debbie started making jewellery 3 years ago on a rainy afternoon when they realised they had a passion in common - it was the passion for jewellery. As well as over 20 years experience between them of designing, branding and retail.
Vicky is a graduate from Chelsea College of Art, specialising in woven textiles and with a love of colour and detail. Before the birth of her daughter, Debbie was travelling the world sourcing beautiful pieces for brands including Links of London and Fossil. So three years ago Victorious Bee was created.
All the jewellery is handmade, using the finest naturally-coloured and ethically-sourced semi-precious stones. Many pieces in their range feature sterling silver hand brushed beads and 18ct vermeil. You can buy a gorgeous bracelet with a birthstone or you can buy cufflinks with a variety of precious gems. There are beautiful meanings necklaces that you can buy for a special friend or special member of your family to let them know how much they mean to you. But my favourite has to be the Bonbon Stacking Bracelet, it costs £55 The stylish semi-precious stacking bracelets can be worn singularly or they look stunning stacked together. Wear them to dress up denim, or add glamour to an evening outfit. Handmade with 10mm semi-precious beads and a trio of hand brushed Sterling silver or 18ct gold vermeil, they are elasticated to fit most wrist sizes. And they can alter the number of beads on special request. This is such a personal gift and is ideal for a christmas present.
Once you have made your order online, the products are made in the UK, and delivery will be within 3-5 working days. The goods are shipped by first class signed for delivery and delivery is £4.50
I ordered a bracelet for Bethys Birthday in September and as it was a birthday gift, we chose her birthstone and when she saw it she was over the moon with it. It arrived in a box, and protected in lots of packaging, it sits lovely on the wrist.
