Mother’s Day is just around the corner and I think I have found the perfect gift; bespoke print jewellery from Bella and Bow. They offer a full range of handmade, personalised print jewellery using foot prints, fingerprints and even paw prints! You can choose from a selection of pieces including necklaces, charms and cufflinks, all made from sterling silver. I was sent a gorgeous keying with the handprints of my two boys on which was breathtakingly beautiful.
Bella and Bow was set up by Kelly and Fiona, two working mums who wanted to create a company that offered “a range of unique, handcrafted and individually sourced gifts that would bring a smile to every customer” and they have succeeded in doing just that. Any of their products would make a touching gift for a mum or grandmother this Mother’s Day, leaving them with an item that they can cherish forever.
We received the design pack within a few days of ordering and I was surprised at how easy the instructions were to follow.
My five year old was very excited and wanted to go first, so we wiped the inked paper over his hand and asked him to put his hand on the paper and then lift it up. Easy, no mess, no fuss and a beautiful clear hand print.
Then it was my two year old’s turn. Not as easy as he wanted to do it on his own, but luckily you get a piece of A4 paper per child so you can take as many prints as you can fit on the page, then just mark the one you like the best and post it back to them.
I got a message from Bella and Bow telling me they had received the prints and then another message saying the item had been sent. The customer service I experienced was second to none; friendly, informative and quick to respond to any questions I had. About a week later, a package arrived. I opened it and I was surprised to find such a beautifully presented gift.
Once opened, the key ring was everything I had hoped it would be and more. Stunning, with clear hand prints and the names of my children on one side and our chosen message “Made with love 29.01.15” on the other. You can choose any message from a simple happy Mother’s Day to something more personal and private.
I think most mothers will agree that a handmade gift from a child is worth more than anything shop bought, especially when you can see how proud your child is of their item and the joy they get from watching you open it. This gift captures both the ability to involve the child in making the gift but also the opportunity to spoil someone you love with exquisite jewellery that they will be proud to show off.
