Hand on Heart Pandora-Style Charms

In 2012, when the blog was in its infancy, Hand on Heart jewellery was one of the first brands to ask if I would work with them. Based in Cumbria, sisters Amanda and Heather have developed a process to transfer images onto silver, allowing them to make the most gorgeous selection of personalised jewellery. 
Back then, I was sent some silver cube charms with my kids' photos and handprints on them - which continue to fascinate my kids 2 years on. You can see the post on this link. It explains how you go about making the prints at home with the kit that you're sent out when you make an order.
So it was lovely to hear from Amanda again recently when she contacted me about their new jewellery lines. While tempted by the pendants (as recently worn by Fearne Cotton), I opted once again for Pandora style charms and left the design up to Amanda. The great thing was that she was able to use the prints I had sent in the last time so the turnaround was even faster. And here's what arrived with me the other day:
Now this is a company that goes the extra mile with packaging and presentation...just look at the details, starting with this gorgeous card showing the handprints that were used in making the jewellery. Brought a tear to my eye!

If you look closely, you can see that the ribbon has been personalised too with my name!

and I have to say that I was most looking forward to these as I remembered them from the last time (easily pleased)..clearly 3 of them were all for me, not the kids!!

...and here they are on my bracelet. How gorgeous do they look? 
I should say, I'm not a full Pandora bracelet kind of girl. I find the bracelet gets too heavy when it's got any more than this on it and I like to show some of the snake-chain. Anyone else find the same?

Every time I look at them, my heart melts..they are simply the loveliest little memento of the special people or pets in your life. Check out the Hand on Heart Jewellery website on this link - the perfect Valentine's or Mother's Day gift for the woman who has everything and it's nice to know you're supporting a small indigenous company run by two enterprising and talented sisters.
