Trinket Trove {Giveaway}


A while ago I was lucky enough to stumble upon the beautiful sisters of 'Trinket Trove' at a launch I was invited to. Tamara and Cassandra make exquisite jewellry and their range has become rather extensive. Everything from braiding, beads, crystals, trinkets and inspirational words are included in their designs.

The words they use in their jewelry are meant to give whoever wears them a little 'lift' in their day to day lives. This is what attracted me to their products as I'm always looking for ways to inspire and bring a smile to someone's face. Something as simple as looking down at a bracelet and seeing the words "believe" or "love" can touch someone just enough to get them through a tough day.

This is ONE of the reasons I love Trinket Trove.





When I first saw the sisters at the launch, Tamara had to stand up and give a speech.

Here, I've taken a few extracts from her inspiring speech:

"My fetish since a young age has been jewellry and accessories."

"Casss came over to see what I had done and fell in love. She said 'Make me 100 wraps, I am going to sell them."  "What I did not realise is that the order of 100 wraps was the first of many to come."

"If there is one thing that has stood out the most from working with my sister, Cass, she truly has taught me that anything is possible. I believe that with our passion and as a team our dreams will become a reality. We will never stop dreaming."

She was noticeably nervous but got up in front of everyone and delivered a beautiful speech. I knew then, by watching this small act of courage that there was more to these ladies than simply makers of beautiful jewellry. 
I decided to pay them a visit at their Studio and get to know them and their products a little better. They share a studio with their dad who designs modern, rustic furniture for The Industrial Revolution @ Light Bulb Studio and is equally as talented with his craft as his daughters.
The studio was a gorgeous, spacious, rustic, vintage, industrial and homely space all thrown into one.




Tamara is the talent behind all the designs, while her sister, Cass, is the business woman. It's so beautiful to see sisters working so closely together on such a special project! Their business has gone from strength to strength and has continued to grow, with the girls working harder and harder to keep up with all the orders that come through.
