Christmas is just around the corner, and if you’ve finally got over the shock of how quick this time of year has come around (seriously, wasn’t it May last month?) then you might be starting to think about gifting, party season and naturally, lots of delicious Christmas food!
Here in the YCB office we tend to start our Christmas shopping early, there’s nothing worse than the last-minute panic of trying to find your BFF a gift that looks thoughtful but was actually one of the last items standing in John Lewis. Yes, we’ve all been there.
Much to our delight, one of our favourite jewellery brands has just released a brand-new collection in time for Christmas, and we think your bestie, sister, and even your mum will LOVE these pieces but first, let us introduce you.
Founded in 2015 by jewellery designer Annabel Cox and food editor Georgina Fuggle, Little by Little Jewellery are a brand with a difference. With ethics and sustainability at the heart of the business, you can shop with a clean conscience and support a brand with fantastic values. A proud partner of charity Action Against Hunger, for every item sold, Little by Little donate funding to pay for three day’s supply of therapeutic food to nurse an acutely malnourished child back to health. Not only can you enjoy a beautiful new piece of jewellery from an independent brand, you’ll also be donating to an extremely worthy charity too. It’s guilt free shopping!
All jewellery is ethically made in Peru using 100% traceable silver, and supporting the local economy. Their packaging is 100% recyclable and made here in the UK, yes, it’s fair to say Little by Little are a brand with a big heart and their ethos in the right places. Whether you’re indulging in a little self-gifting or purchasing for a loved one, you’ll be putting your money in the right place.
Now that you’re acquainted, say hello to the new Mustard Collection! Inspired by the tiny yet powerful mustard seed with its strong flavour, colour and potential for growth. The range features beautiful spherical shapes and a stunning combination of gold and silver. The collection is perfect for interchanging and stacking, we particularly love the rings, stack as many or as few as you’d like.
The thing we love the most about this collection? The wearability, these pieces are perfect for both day and night. We’ll be adding a few extra rings and layering our necklaces for a striking festive party look!
The YCB fashion team have selected their favourite pieces from the new collection…
We’ve fallen for these fantastic statement earrings! The perfect accessory for your party outfit, these hoops offer a sophisticated touch that can be dressed up for night-time or worn casually in the day with a pair of tailored trousers, white shirt and ballet flats for running around the city.
Available in silver and gold, these stacking rings are minimalist perfection. If you want to keep your jewellery stylish but low-key, these delicate rings have you covered. Best worn with a fresh manicure, we’re thinking gorgeous festive red nails!
A chic necklace that can be adjusted and worn at three different lengths. We adore this design, and can see this looking just gorgeous with a little black dress over the festive season. It’s the perfect pre-Christmas treat or gift for your bestie who is sure to love this stunning piece of jewellery.
A versatile piece that can wrapped around your neck, layered with other jewellery or simply worn as a long necklace, we’re hoping to receive one of these in our stockings on Christmas morning (a subtle hint to our partners!). A timeless design that will serve you well with almost all outfits, this really is a must-have.
Well, if we’re going to treat ourselves to a necklace, surely, we have to buy the matching bracelet too! Another delicate piece of jewellery that’s versatile yet beautiful. Treat a lucky lady in your life, or buy yourself a little pressie because…well…you deserve it!
We’ve fallen head over heels for the new Mustard Collection, we just love the contemporary designs, interesting mix of metals and versatility of the whole range. These pieces are sure to bring a smile to the face of a lucky recipient over Christmas. Not only will you be treating someone you love to an incredible gift, you’ll be supporting a fantastic charity and sustainable fashion. Does it get any better?
