When you think of something being Handmade, you may think expensive, you may think luxury...

Those two things may be the case for some things, but when we are talking about Handmade Sterling Silver Jewellery from Live & Live by Maxine, it is certainly not expensive.

All my pieces are affordable and made with great care and attention, I want my jewellery to be loved and treasured for years to come.

This is the time of year when thoughts of Christmas start to come about, the nights are slowly drawing in and there is a slight chill in the air, although I believe we may be getting a few warm days as Summer comes to an end (I use Summer in a very loose term).

With so much to think about at Christmas, getting presents sorted for friends and family early, allows us to get organised and do what we should be doing over the festive period, and that is relaxing and enjoying it, stress-free.

Imagine the person's face when they open the jewellery box, and you can say 'I had this handmade for you', that feels incredibly personal and special.

Handmade is also very individual, with no two pieces being exactly the same.  We are all individual and jewellery is a great way of expressing that and showing our personality.

Take a look at my collection https://liveandlovebymaxine.co.uk for gift ideas for loved ones...or for yourself.  

This is a great season, I look forward to getting my boots out and into my big snugly jumpers.  Watching movies cuddled up on the sofa, maybe with a Baileys :-) and as the it starts to get dark, my fairy lights and candles, both indoors and outdoors start to come on (they are on timers).  There is that warm, cosy feeling, which I love.

Have fun and take care
