In the studio...

Summer is a great time for new product development and we are working on tons here at the moment. Its a lovely part of the business to work on. We are also super busy in the online shop, all our lovely customers are busy buying pretty colourful jewels for these lovely Summer days.

Here's a couple of shots from the studio of late. You can see all these studio snapshots over on the Custom Made instagram
As you can see, there is going to be a rather super bear added to our Geo range. He's taken a little bit of work to get right, more than usual :/ but I'm happy with him now.
Look out over in the shop in around a weeks time. Our little bear should be ready then.

Sale shopping...

I hope you are had a lovely weekend! We are busy busy here at CM this lovely Monday with wholesale orders and preparing all your orders to ship from the weekend. Lots of these shipping out today :) Its been a weekend for delicate jewellery.
Now, I'm not obsessed with sale shopping but I do love the odd bargain. This week for me in shopping is all about sweatshirts!

I love very simple clothes but sometimes like a print or two. I spotted these sweats by the Danish brand Wood Wood over at Totokaelo a lovely Seattle store a while ago then forgot all about them.
Anyway, last week I managed to score the one with the 'outside print over on Asos. It was £125 but is £43 in the sale! Mega bargain. They also have the blot print one heavily reduced too so I may have to make another visit this week.
Its great to get a bargain now and then.

I hope you all enjoyed your weekends! Summer is here!
A very exciting thing happened a while ago and we can tell you guys now its all happening. Custom Made was chosen my the Royal Academy of Arts as one of their RAted designers. RAted is the Royal Academy's showcase for emerging British design and artistic talent. To say I am happy for us to have been chosen is an understatement.
Here's the items selected to go into store. Some of our favorites for sure. Go over to the Royal Academy shop and have a look, Custom Made is in good company. Other designers include our very good pals Jill Green and I am Acrylic. There are 15 designers in total.
Have a great Monday!

Zara and Vans and Custom Made and pink...

I had to run into town yesterday to pick up my phone as its been mended (hooray, back to reliable instagram service!) On the way I nipped into Zara. I never used to go into Zara but of late there have been some great items. There was a little bit of a pink theme going on. I'm not usually a pink person but I was think how well these items would go with my new banana Vans AND our very own Turquoise Deneb Earrings!
