Very Vintage is a Jewellery making business in its infancy but designer, EIly, has wasted no time launching it. In less than a year she has put together her own website and Facebook page and made some lovely jewellery!

I have also been involved in some charity work, and I am currently making bracelets in support of a local toddler who needs to raise £72,000 for a life changing operation in America. This has involved making a range of beaded bracelets with 25% of the sale going to the cause. You can find out more about this cause on the Help Oliver Walk fundraising page.
There is also an option for a second game – the bead a bracelet game. Guests are given a stretch of elastic. They then have 3 minutes to bead a bracelet with beads from my mix tin. The winner is chosen by the host and they receive 10% off their order that night.
After that the guests have the option to look at the Jewellery and either buy on the spot or place an order. I have a mixture of pieces that are order only and some that can be taken on the night. Orders taken on the night, are generally made up and returned to the host within a week to 10 days.
I am very excited about my party at home service and hope that it will bring awareness of my jewellery to a wider customer base.
