In January I met with fabulously colourful knitwear designer Becky Dodman to discuss a commissioned wedding necklace. Becky LOVES colour (quite possibly even more than I do!), and had a list of elements she wanted included, like the cute lil robot for her now husband, a rose quartz arrow head, and lots of bright bold colours.

Well working on such a personal project is terrifying and exciting at the same time!! I was so honoured and touched that Becky had chosen me to create her necklace, and really wanted to create a piece that was as wonderful as she’d imagined.

We had decided on six different ‘straps’ or woven segments, and Becky wanted:

a robot
the words “kiss me'“
a love heart
diamonds / zigzags
the eye symbol
the word “Si”

And so I got busy designing patterns and ideas! I’ve shared some of the progress and design work below, alongside photographs from Becky’s big day.

Custom order: handmade personalised name bracelet
Personalised name bracelet handmade_web.jpg

Heyyy peeps!

Here’s a custom order I made last month at very short notice! I actually stayed up until 12.30am making it on the Saturday night after being up from 7am and at the Salcombe pop up shop all day too - but it was worth it!! :D

XO Acapulco in khaki and white

My customer wanted a special gift for a very special friend, and loved the idea of something customised especially for her. She wanted a personalised bracelet and loved the colours in the khaki XO Acapulco cuff because she said they would go with almost anything, from t-shirts to a dress. And to match the bracelet she asked for a pair of personalised earrings, with the initial A.

So I got busy!

First I had to order the super cute 24 carat gold plated initial charms. I am definitely going to order some teeny S for myself soon too!

Then I had to do the maths! Because the XO Acapulco cuff is so geometric I needed to work out the patterns exactly to the bead. And then design the font, fit the name in, decide the colours (this was quite fiddly too!)…you get the picture!

Then the beading began! I used rounded seed beads for the name ANOUD so that is slightly raised and stands out from the bracelet. The gold beads are electroplated 24 carat gold - ooh la la.

Fitted with the same khaki coloured teeny seed beads, the ‘A’ earrings will look wonderful over summer with a golden glow.

I hope Anoud was thrilled with her gift and the lovely sentiment behind it for her.

Do you think I should offer more custom name bracelets like this?

Custom order: Ombre Rainbow Hearts necklace + coordinating dark silver bracelet
Custom rainbow heart necklace handmade in devon

You know by now how much I enjoy working on custom orders for you! Here’s a recent custom necklace and bracelet I made for one of the longest-running Shh customers, Moira. She really must have as many Shh pieces as I do!!

She loved the new Ombre Hearts bracelet and requested it to be made into a Priestess-style necklace. She also ordered a coordinating bracelet in a slightly different pattern - and here are the results!

I love them - do you?

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.

Fun handmade wedding favours - customised bag charms!
handmade wedding favour pink heart Charm.jpg

When planning my wedding last year I wanted a fun, cute little wedding favour for our female guests. I had been looking for something unusual and something that the guests could take with them as a reminder of the day. The favour also needed to be lightweight and easy to transport as we were getting married in France. Not much to ask!! ;-)

After looking for several weeks online and not finding anything I liked, or that was within a reasonable budget, I decided to make something myself!

And that’s when I came up with the idea of the Shh Charmed Heart bag charms - I designed them for my wedding guests! I had a lot of fun creating all kinds of colour combinations - bright contrasting colours, pastels - metallics. It was exciting!

I also designed a little gift tag that accompanied each charm and placed them in a brightly coloured organza bag. You can see the process and the finished product below.

And you can see more bespoke bridal Shh by Sadie jewellery here, including the Charmed Heart charms.

If you’d like to order the Charmed Heart charms as wedding favours (or for another special occasion) they’re available in gold or silver hardware and beaded in your selection of colours. Pick a rainbow of colours, or choose simple white and gold - it’s your choice! Prices start at £10.
