Morning lovelies, almost the end of the week and SATs! Although Lucy seems to have sailed through the week with little stress, which is such a relief. Also Jack seems to have coped well with his exams this week. I know we are looking forward to half term already, yet Connor will then be revising so not a complete rest in our house! Hey ho at least we can take some time off to enjoy the Jubilee celebrations in our village. I know we are not the only ones going through exam stress and I am sure little treats are already being planned. Perhaps a day out, a new top or a new book or a bracelet. Maybe you are looking for a tasteful piece of memorabilia to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee? Well Kit Heath certainly have lots of beautiful treats for our daughters.
Blossom Silver Locket
Inspired by his grandfathers gemstones and his metalwork teacher, Kit Heath set out at eighteen with an idea to create beautiful jewellery. His entreprenurial spirit was fostered by his teacher who also taught him the skills he needed to make his jewellery designs. However at eighteen money wasn't abundant to buy silver so he 'borrowed' the families silver candlesticks! A few years later, in his early twenties, Kit brought a shop in Devon, where he left his teenage sister all week to run his new retail business. Meanwhile he spent the weeks finding jewellers to stock his designs, touring the south of England in his VW campervan. The business grew rapidly and soon Kit and Katie's ideal of having an international jewellery business was realised. Kit Heath is now a quintessential British brand sold in independant and major retailers here in the UK and the US aswell.
Bluebird Stud Earrings
Having seen some awful children's jewellery over the years I remember seeing Kit Heath jewellery in a local jewellers and as a parent I was delighted to finally find something beautiful for my daughters. Just knowing that their designs are made using sterling silver and not cheap metals is a winner in my opinion. Nevermind that their designs are stylishly cool enough that children actually like them. Whilst my daughters are yet to have their ear pierced they are already choosing earrings on the Kit Heath website, pretty little studs with a flash of colour.
Bumble Bee Stud Earrings
Personally I really like the silver beads and charms. I still have my silver charm bracelet that was a christening present back in the 70's and all of my girls love looking at it, making up stories with all the charms. So for me the Kit Heath silver beads and charms are a new version of my bracelet, but mean that girls can collect beads and charms over the years. These bracelets are designed to be treasured and parents, grandparents and godparents can buy new beads or charms for birthdays or Christmas. Also they are reasonably priced so as girls get older they can save their pocket money for new beads or charms.
Scrumptious Strawberry Bracelet
With the Jubilee fast approaching it would not come as a surprise that this quintessentially British jewellery designer has a fabulous collection to celebrate the occasion. Adorned with iconic union jacks in a palette of patriotic red, white and blue I assure you that you will not be disappointed. Whilst these designs are made especially for 2012 I am sure we will be wearing them for years to come.
Kit Heath Regal Bracelet
Now after all of this eye candy, this post is about to get even better. The incredibly wonderful team at Kit Heath have provided a Sterling Silver Regal Bracelet, from their Kids collection, for me to giveaway to one very lucky reader. I actually don't want to run this giveaway and keep the bracelet for myself, although not sure it would fit as it's a childs bracelet! However I will be good, so here's what you need to do to win the Regal Bracelet from Kit Heath.
