Visiting Etsy

Are you trying to access my Etsy shop? Well, good luck with that. The site is there (currently!) and  you can see my products, but clicking on the images just gives you an error message. It's frustrating, as I'm trying to add my new Halloween range (yes, I know its summer. I'm pro-active!) and it won't let me do that.

Still here!

It seems that some of my product items over on Etsy have not been showing up. Something to do with the location settings, apparently. I didn't change anything so I suppose it must have been a glitch of some kind, but if you're in the UK, and you haven't been able to find me, this is why. Hopefully all is fixed again now, so feel free to browse as much as you want!

Oh, and thank you for looking!

White silk!

I have been busy making – and listing, and the new background design is starting to trickle through the shop. I really like it, and I think that not only does it look fresh, but it shows off the jewellery very well. I would like to get a new outfit for my display mannequins, too. Maybe a little dress for Polly (she shows off the necklaces) and a little T-shirt for Hannah (Earring display) as the poor thing is shirtless at the moment. Yes, I do name my display girls. Doesn't everyone?

As a bit of an upcoming taster, take a look at these lovely silk necklace pendants displayed on our new background. I'd love to know what you think!

In other news, we've had a very cold spell lately, with snow, and I include a picture of our wintery garden,

I also took possession of my new glasses today, and being able to see what I'm making will be very handy...

I have returned with more clipons!

Here we are again. What do you mean? Who am I? Well! Disappear for a few weeks and... Oh, right. Sorry, things have been kinda busy with family things, things to do with the new house, Christmas things, life things, behind the scenes shop things...

But. I have been making. Lots of things, in fact! We've been trying to find a nice day to take some new product photographs – the light in England fluctuates wildly, and by the time you get everything out and set up, the sun hides behind a cloud, moves across the sky so you have to move the equipment, or it rains, at which point you give up and go and make a cup of tea. (This is our go-to answer for every ill that befalls us. Somebody will always put the kettle on!)

In addition, I've been wanting to try another new look for the shop. Something clean and simple-looking, and you will see that being wheeled out over the next few weeks.

Last year I trialled a new series of clip-on earrings, and they went really well! Therefore I have made a whole batch of new styles, and here is the first set of pictures of my new range. More coming soon!

Hello 2018!

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great Christmas and that the new year has been kind to you. A new start, right? 

Rose Bay Jewellery is back up and trading again. Thankfully! I have so many ideas for new designs and product lines and I can promise you, dear reader, an interesting year packed full of lovely jewellery!  I can't wait to get on with it!

Stay tuned....

3 days to Christmas!

Are you excited yet? Exhausted? Loving the party season?

I would like to wish all of my lovely readers, loyal customers, and everyone who follows my shop or social media, a very Happy Christmas! Or Seasons' Greetings, whichever fits you better.

Rose Bay Jewellery is closed until after Christmas, Boxing Day, probably. I'm taking the opportunity to try and catch up on all the behind-the-scenes stuff that needs doing, and of course, I still have a family Christmas to prepare for.

Have a great time, everyone. See you after Christmas?
