New things....

Its a rather exciting time here at CM HQ. We have LOTS of new products coming soon. Here's a little sneaky look at one of them...
We have lots of new jewellery in work at the moment and a lovely new colour combo that I am very excited about...
Watch this space for new items coming soon. We also have NEW PURSES!!! This is so exciting. Especially as they are gold and grey. Two favorite colours here at Custom Made.
Watch this space.

Mokuyobi Threads...

Phew, its been a busy week here at CM HQ with Christmas production in full swing. Yes, I know its only the beginning of September but its a must and honestly Christmas production started in August!
Well enough talk about Christmas. I wanted to share a brand I have come to love recently Mokuyobi Threads.
I recently signed up to their mailing list and a newsletter popped into my inbox this week with a new addition to their range.
These superb duffle bags.

Now I'm a sucker for a good duffle bag. We had one in the Custom Made range some time ago and I took a long time creating the perfect shape. The key is a good circumference, not too sausagey. Thats a duffle no no in my book. And these are great. Great prints, great colours and a good shape. A winning duffle combo! I love the meat print.

We have added quite a few new brooches to the shop of late and to celebrate this I thought a nice little discount code might be good.
So, you can get 25% off any brooch in the shop with code BROOCHES (I know...very inventive)
I celebrated by making this little banner. I love making little banners.
Hop on over to the shop and all your brooch filled dreams will come true.

Pretty dresses...

Sometimes on the blog I let you guys into the inner realms of the Custom Made design process. I hope you like it?
When designing new products I always pull together outfits I would love to see the accessories sitting with. When designing brooches, I always imagine them as a nice little 'cherry on the cake' to an outfit.
 Here are a couple of little collages I pulled together for our new Geo Bear brooch (with our super popular cat thrown in for good measure)
A lovely brooch on a pretty dress, how can you go wrong? All dresses are from The Whitepepper. Hope you like the outfits. I realised when I was moving the outfits around they looked like little dolls with the brooches up top!

New necklace...

We have a new and delightful necklace added to our sterling silver range. Our Shapes Necklace and Equilateral Necklace are so popular we thought we would add another shape themed necklace to the range.

The Hex Necklace features delicate circle and hexagon shapes. Hope you like it!
