Lou's Reviews :: Scarlett Hearts Handmade Jewels

Aloha Spinklerinos,

As those of you who have read this blog for a while (a big 'Hello' if you're new!) will know, I am a keen crafter and lover of all things handmade. I really do value something someone has put time and effort in so much more than something that has been mass made on a factory production line. That's not to say I don't own boxes and boxes of tangled up primark jewels, but I do hold a special place in my heart for a girl who can make gorgeous accessories. 

Scarlett Hearts is one such shop. I was recently sent some beautiful pieces* and although I think I showed you them in a video, I felt they needed to be oogled a bit more! I won't go on and on like a drain (do drains go on and on??) because you can see the pictures for yourselves and the link is above, but I must say, I do like them! I'm not really too 'out there' with jewellery, but for me, this is quirky and cute and just what I'm looking for in life. Aside from a million pounds, a hunky gardener, a pink unicorn....


All my bits and bobs were beautifully packaged. I LOVE opening up little trinkets and gifts, it makes me feel glittery inside.


Slightly blurry- grrrr. 

Golden Snitch Necklace


As a rather geeky Potter fan (I've actually been on the Hogwarts Express steam train dontchya know!), the golden snitch necklace was my favourite. I like how it opens up and you can hide secrets inside. Aren't secrets devilishly exciting? 

If I could make one minor improvement (and this is not a criticism, just a personal opinion), I would have liked the chain to be the same colour metal as the snitch, but other than that, I was one happy bunny!!!

If you have a mo, do go and have a browse of the Scarlett Heart shop, it's a treasure trove of goodies.

Are you a handmade gal? Do you secretly love Harry Potter as much as me? Do you like secrets? Do you think I'm asking too many questions? Do you? DO YOU?!? ;)

Toodlepip!

    1. Paper crafts are a good place to start. You can get massivr bumper packs of plain cards&envelopes for next to nothing and 3D glue dots etc are cheap too. You can use allsorts for card designs eg magazine, wrapping paper etc. The best part is kids even young ones can join in with sticking/finger painting/scribbling and what Grandparent worth their salt doesn't love a hand made card?

  3. I saw this little bird cage on DaWanda (the german version of etsy) on the weekend too and just bought it right away :D
    I felt totally dizzy and hysterical when the tiny envelope was in the mail. I guess it is the greatest thing of all to unwrapped "presents" *hihi* feeling glittery inside because of it is a quite good exspression for it.

    The Schnatz is cute as well and secretly I'm a Potter Fan also. But only of the first four books which were really COOL! (the later ones bored me and were too much blah blah and too less awesome new ideas like Fred&George's magical sweets store... hello?! How cool was that? I wished so badly to be there...)
