Today I’d like to give a shout-out to the lovely Sofiya who runs her own online handmade jewellery business. You probably already know from my earlier ramblings that I’m a big fan of jewellery, ranging from cheap & tacky galore (I have drawers full), to lovely sterling silver. Handmade crafting is in a class of its own; it’s very popular and it’s easy to see why. It’s the personal touch and love that goes into each piece that makes it truly original.
I’m thrilled today to be able to share Sofiya’s crafts with you and host my very first giveaway!
Update 26/07/2019 – Winner has been drawn! Random number generator says ‘1’ so the winner is Jo – congratulations!
In collaborating with Sofiya, I chose this gorgeous labradorite pendant necklace. This is what I’m giving away, so if you fancy winning, read on to see how you can enter.
It came in a little organza bag & it was delivered very quickly. It’s a large labradorite stone, with a wire criss-cross over the front, and lovely detailing at the top. It’s solid and distinctive, and comes with a silver tone chain with lobster clasp.
Sofiya makes a range of products that are available on her website Santi’s Design, like earrings, pendant necklaces and bracelets, with a variety of styles and colours.
My wrists are quite small, so naturally I worry about the size of bracelets and bangles. Buying online can be a bit hit & miss as things are often too big. When I mentioned this, Sofiya was really helpful and told me she also has a small wrist so the bracelet with glass beads I was looking at should fit.
If you have any queries, I highly recommend just dropping her an email as she’s very down to earth and clearly wants to make sure clients are happy, so she’ll be able to help. You can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sofiya is originally from Bulgaria, and holds a masters degree in Marketing, Advertising and Public Relations. She used to work a regular 9 to 5 job but she was also passionate about jewellery making as a hobby. In 2010, she took the leap and it was then that her business was born. She moved to the UK and lives with her husband and child, and hopes to make her jewellery business a success by doing and sharing what she loves.
