It’s that time of year again when you start thinking of what to buy people for Crimbo.
Now, with the rise of Etsy and online sellers, you can not only gift a loved one something unique, but also support small businesses in the process.
Let us introduce you to Jacqus Design, sole trader extraordinaire serving up deliciously beautiful jewellery that will make you stand out from the crowd.
Handcrafted with ‘care, love and positivity’, the stunning creations include earrings, bangles, and necklaces to treat that special someone (or yourself).
Personally, we have our eye on the amethyst and rose quartz that have been twinned together with copper wire to craft a statement piece.
There are also treasures with tiger eye, cherry quartz, new jade, and black tourmaline that are guaranteed to brighten up any outfit.
The delicate wizardry behind the handiwork belongs to Jacqueline, originally from Aberdeen but who now lives in the Wirral, Merseyside.
At 52 years young, and a proud mum and grandma, she is living proof that it’s never too late to follow your dreams.
Speaking about her new path, she explained that despite always having a flair for creativity, it was only recently that she embarked on it as a business venture.
Jacqueline said: “I lost my job when the company I worked for folded in 2020 due to the Covid outbreak, so I needed to busy myself with something new.
“I have always loved crystals and gemstones, so I learned how to craft jewellery. I opened my Etsy shop in March and fingers crossed I will continue to grow.”
She added: “It has rapidly become more than a passion and I can be found in my workshop for days on end, cooking up inspired and delicate items to wear and enjoy.”
So, next time you Google ‘gift ideas’, remember Jacq’s jewels are just a click away.
