Who doesn’t want to support local, small businesses? One that’s really caught my eye lately is Liverpool-based jewellery brand With Love Beckie. Named after its owner, Beckie makes all the items by hand herself.
The brand specialises in dainty stacking jewellery, which is perfect for giving as gifts – in fact, many items can have the packaging personalised with a name. You’ll also find several ready-to-gift occasion items, including “Will you be my Bridesmaid” and “Will you be my Maid of Honour” wish bracelets.
If you’re looking for presents, With Love Beckie’s wish bracelets are a super cute (and surprisingly inexpensive!) choice. As the packaging explains, you “Tie it. Wish it. Wear it. May your dreams come true.” – that is, you tie the bracelet onto your wrist, make a wish, and keep it tied until your wish comes true.
The wish bracelets are made from thin black cord and a tiny sterling silver charm. They include fan favourites such as a tiny star (the packaging says “She leaves a little sparkle wherever she goes”) and a tiny heart (the packaging says “You’ve got this”). They make great presents for teachers, friends, and loved ones – and there are plenty of options to choose from.
The With Love Beckie range also includes sterling silver necklaces and bracelets, with small charm pendants including things like an elephant (“to bring good luck your way”), a bee (“Bee happy”) and a star (“Make a wish”). They’re a great way to let people know you’re thinking of them.
With Love Beckie isn’t just for adults. Beckie also makes child-size jewellery – so if you have a little girl, there are plenty of options for twinning with Mummy. These are made from silver beads and a charm secured with elastic, so there aren’t any dangling strings anywhere.
You can find With Love Beckie at the Curve Fashion Festival 2019, or on Etsy. Bring a little joy to someone’s life – or just pick up a treat for yourself!
