Custom order: short Chevron D'or necklace
custom made necklace plymouth devon

I recently created this custom order necklace for a regular Shh customer. She wanted the Chevron D’or necklace in the style of the shorter Priestess necklace. And so we shortened the chevron pattern and voila, here’s the beautiful finished product!

I think it will look gorgeous in the spring and summer weather, with a strappy top, the beads glimmering in the sunshine. Yay!

See below for photos of the custom short length necklace, and the original Chevron D’or.

Colourful statement hair clips - Soiree by Shh by Sadie!

Who else is LOVING a statement hair clip right now? I am!!

I was in search for a cute, colourful clip for my hair, and just could NOT find any that I liked. And so in the end, late one Tuesday night I found the clips bases I had used for making my bridesmaid hair flowers (you can spy them here if you like). I measured them up, sketched a few designs, and experimented.

And these are the results! I had such enthusiastic feedback when I shared them on Instagram and Facebook that I designed more and have added them to the shop. The clips come in sets of two and are available exclusively at Shhbysadie.com.

So for fun, colourful statement hair clips - take a look at these hand beaded beauties.

Which is your fave? The ombre rainbow hair clip, pastel hair clip or the bright orange and pink zig zag?

New Rainbow Heart beaded bracelets - how they were made!
Hearts_4Web.jpg

This week I released the new set of four Rainbow Heart bracelets. And if you follow me on Instagram you may well have helped me with this design! It had been quite tricky getting the colours right for this new pattern, and involved several hours of weaving, then unpicking, and weaving again in new colours.

I had wanted to create a new bracelet that was fun and playful, with of course plenty of colour!

I originally wanted the hearts to be made up of clashing, strong colours, and drew the pattern out, tested beads on paper - but when I wove it on the loom, I hated it! The colours just didn’t work in the flesh :(

So I shared a photo on Instagram stories and asked for your advice. I wasn’t even sure whether I even still liked the hearts pattern anymore. So I tried a few more colour ways, each time fussing with beads on my table, laying them next to each other, then weaving the pattern and still not being happy with it.

I almost gave up on the idea several times - wondering if they were too childish, or whether anyone would even like them.

THEN I thought - maybe let’s try a rainbow / ombre colour way! And I was finally happy. I’d tried to veer away from pinks, but after several attempts with other colours, the pinks came back and persuaded me they looked best :D

So here’s the final bracelets - playful, fun and pink.

Hope you like them!

Sadie
