TOP 5 DESIGNS A GIRL WANTS

We all love jewellery, but sometimes we can get confused or overwhelmed with all the choices and options we have. A selection of tones, inscriptions, symbols, and designs can sometimes distract us from the true meaning of the jewellery piece we are creating. For now let’s put aside the jewellery options and have a look at the top 5 designs that every girl wants (and secretly needs)!

1.  My Family Tree Necklace

The My Family Tree Necklace is the perfect design for those with a growing family. We have created this design for mostly mothers and grandmothers as it has a lot of room to fit children and grandchildren. Can’t decide between the silver and gold? Then why not create a two tone.

2. Name Necklace

This is a classic. There is no excuse for not having this design of jewellery. A name necklace is the most personalised piece of jewellery everyone should have and is suitable for any age. The name necklace is for every occasion and will serve you for many years to come. A priceless investment.

3. Dream Locket

If you haven’t taken notice of the dream lockets, you need to. Get them on a long chain to compliment any outfit while keeping those nearest and dearest to you. Create and personalise charms any way you like. They are great for every day or to add some bling on those nights out.

4. Memory Necklace

The Memory Necklace is the most treasured keepsake anyone who has a lost love can have. Carry not only a personalised inscription of your loved one, but place inside the canister a token of remembrance inside. Being waterproof and safe means that your most treasured moment can be close to your heart at all times.

5. Endless Bangle

You can be sure to feel inspired every time you look down at this stunning bangle. Personalise your bangle with your life motto for a confidence boost when you need it, or feel a sense of pride while you carry your loved ones name on this stylish piece.

PERFECT FOR EVERY MOMENT

Rest easy with these gift ideas

We all know that the perfect (or even just the right) gift can create a lasting impression while making the moment a truly enjoyable experience. Choosing a gift is decidedly more difficult when it comes to planning something fitting for the occasion. Here’s a little secret where we have a few selected designs that make the gift leave a lasting impression.

Birthday

A personalised gift for any age and a great way to give a gift that lasts. Hand cut with the name or word of your choice.

Wedding

Weddings are one of the most special days in a person’s life so while everything is about the bride and the groom, celebrating and thanking the people involved is a part of what makes the day special. Pieces have been created for mothers of the bride and groom, children, bridesmaids, and close friends. Having the date and wedding details inscribed on a piece truly is a special token of the day.

Anniversaries

What better way to celebrate your love than marking a special date you share with your other half? Add an extra touch of personalisation by inscribing parts of your vows at the back.

Remembrance

There is something about wearing personalised jewellery as a remembrance of a lost loved one. Time and time again stories have been shared with us of how much comfort has been felt by holding a remembrance piece close to the heart and how it has helped many feel that their lost loved one is still close to them.

Kindness

Inscribing a message of gratitude or inspiration is a priceless gift. Showing someone just how much they mean to you, reminds them of the valuable bond you share.

6 STEPS TO CREATE PERSONALISED JEWELLERY YOU’LL LOVE

Becoming a Belle Fever jewellery designer

Designing your own personalised jewellery can sometimes feel a little overwhelming, wouldn’t you agree? The first time is the hardest, but after the first you will find that its actually quite fun and easy to do. Follow these steps for success.

Step 1: Decide which design

What kind of jewellery are you after? Is it for a particular moment or occasion? Is it for you or for a gift? Are you wanting to recreate a design you have seen on someone, in a store or magazine? These kinds of questions are perfect to prepare for the designing process

Step 2: Decide the tone

What tones and metals do you normally wear? See what skin tone you have and which metal tones suit your skin tone. Check out our skin tone matching guide  here.

Step 3: Decide on your inscriptions

Think words Are you after something that inspires you or something that marks a special event? Inscribing your favourite quote or mantra to keep you inspired or details that mark a special event, such as the birth of a child where you can inscribe the date, baby’s name, length, birth time, etc. Think names Do you want it to keep your loved ones close to you heart? Inscribe their names. Want to create a family heirloom that can be passed on to generations? Personalise it with all the names of your family members in order from oldest to youngest. Do you want to have a signature piece with your children’s names inscribed on it?

Step 4: Decide on the layout, symbols

Do you want a sentimental piece that shows your love or close bond? Then hearts would be the most popular choice. Is the inscription more a quote or members of your family tree? Then perhaps the dots will be a better option. Consider the feel and emotional connection of your piece and which symbol you would like as well as the layout and order of words or names.

Step 5: Choose your chain length

Where do you normally have your pendant sit on your neck or bracelet space on your wrist? That’s the one to choose. If you are unsure of your length or want your necklace or bracelet to sit at a different position, see our sizing guide here. We can help you if you have any concerns- feel free to come on our online chat or add the details in your order notes.

Step 6: Waiting

This is the hardest step of all! Waiting for your personalised designed jewellery to wear. Then it’s time to fall in love with your piece and the sentimental meaning it carries.

HOW TO BUILD A DREAM LOCKET

AND MAKE IT YOUR OWN

Almost every woman loves personalised jewellery- especially when you can build your own. Prepare to put aside those basic jewellery designs aside for something that is more you (and far more stunning). Have names of loved ones here, words of inspiration there, or a mix of both to make it truly yours.

A FEW THINGS TO THINK ABOUT

Tone: Wear the tones on their own or mix them up for a truly personalised meaning. Can’t decide? Have them all!

Size: No matter how big your family is, there is a piece for everyone. Let us work with you to include everyone you love on your special design.

Chain: It’s all about how you wear it. keep it close or hang it low. Stylish for every outfit a girl has.

Decorate: The personal touch! Separate the names with a heart or a star, show the generations in your family on different parts of the design. Wear it how you love.

FAMILY LOCKET

Sarah inscribed the children charm, feet and heart charm in a mix of tones to place inside her rose gold dream locket. Isn’t it a heartfelt way to keep her children close? We love rose gold but you might prefer the silver or gold dream lockets.

PAW ON MY HEART LOCKET

Pets are part of the family too. Being able to carry them with you wherever you go is such a special feeling. Silver not you? Make it gold! Make it rose! Make it… I’m sure you get the idea.

SPREAD YOUR WINGS LOCKET

Less about the fear, more about the beauty and confidence. The butterfly and fairy charms are perfect for that magical push to spread your wings and shine!

LOVE LOCKET

Love can make all the difference. This locket showcases the clover charm for a bit of luck, and two hearts kept together to symbolising the connection and unity. Quite beautiful.

Designed for a wedding

Share your special day

Are you getting married?

Not sure how to thank those involved?

That’s OK. As a bride-to-be you’re inundated with choice, so it can be difficult to begin making decisions about your big day, and difficult to find what you want.

Let us make this one decision that bit easier, by allowing you to design your own personalised and meaningful gifts.

THE WEDDING GIFT CHECKLIST

Before you start, think about the following:

  1. Who do you want to thank? Your bridesmaides? Your mother? Don’t feel like you need to find a gift that is a one size fits all. Opt for a style that you know suits the person you are gifting.
  2. What message do you want? If you want to make a meaningful piece, go for a nice quote with details of your special day. Go without names or dates. Or somewhere in between — names, dates and a quote with your own unique twist.
  3. Which design would be ? If the message is long, consider the Love Forever. If it’s to remember the special details of the day, consider a charm.

What to gift a teacher

Because they need to be appreciated too

Any parent or grandparent knows that their child’s teacher is special. Teachers work hard and often not just during school hours. They create lesson plans, grade papers and take courses to learn materials to teach their students. So it is great to say “Thank You” to your child’s hard working teacher. Most give their child’s teacher an end-of-the-year gift and lots of schools also have a Teacher Appreciation Week or Day as well. These terrific designs make a thoughtful Teacher Gift.


How to shop for a birthday

And not stress out

Birthdays come but once a year. They are indeed, very special and worth making the most of. This applies to your own birthday and that of your family and close friends.

As we grow older finding the perfect gift for the right age can be time consuming and at times quite difficult. Here at Belle Fever we know how to do birthday gifts for any age and make sure that they are meaningful and loved.


Picking a gift for a new mum

The start of a family heirloom

It’s really hard to find a nice gift for a new mother sometimes. Do you get something practical?

Sentimental? Is it someone you want to go all out for, or someone you just want to give a small gesture to?

Well, here are a few ideas that go beyond the flowers and nappies that a new mother will really enjoy.


Shopping for your man doesn’t need to be hard

Father’s day gift ideas

Even though men are the less sentimental of the two sexes, it doesn’t mean that father’s day should be celebrated gift-free. For many fathers, they are the people behind the scenes, the pillar of strength for the family, and the one you go to when there is something to fix in the house. They’re there for your first crush, your first heartbreak, and your first kid. Fact is, for most fathers, the best thing in their life is probably you. No matter which type of person your dad is, we have gift ideas that would mark this Father’s day as his best one yet.

The Father- The hero and and first love of a daughter. Inscribe your message of love your father can carry with him.

The Father

The hero and and first love of a daughter. Inscribe your message of love your father can carry with him.

The Father in law

When we are blessed to have another father that is there to love and support us. Give a token of love to your father in law.

The Brothers

Always there to look out for us and protect us.

The special man

These are the men in our lives that mean alot to us and is a father figure in our life. They are our rock in times of need.


When goodbye is painful

Celebrating the memories

As we grow older people around us, and even ourselves, might suffer a loss or tragedy.

What do you say? How can you help? Is there any way you can actually provide some genuine comfort and support to your friend in need?

You cannot take away the pain or “fix things” for them but you can show your support and comfort them with a piece that cherishes the memories and life of the loved one. We have a collection of designs that are carefully selected and beautifully made symbolising love and remembrance. They are timeless and uplifting, they can be given at any time throughout the year. It may not take away the pain, but we have seen that it brings a sense of peace.

Works of ART gifted from kids

Don’t you just love having your kid’s come up to you so proud while they explain what they just drew for you? As I sat down assembling these lovely works of art gifted from kids, it was such a privilege to be able to capture those precious moments that we all know seem to fly past all too fast. If you have been a BFF for a while, you would have received my email when we first started capturing kid’s drawings in jewellery, I mentioned that I was creating my daughter’s drawing of a family portrait and that I would share a photo once I had displayed them in a frame.

So I finally had the chance to open the frame I got from Ikea and hung her drawing of each family member inside the frame on the snake chain.

How do you think it turned out?

I had planned to put the original drawing in the frame as well however, I unfortunately lost it 🙁 Thankfully I have it captured in jewellery and framed. My sons are a little older than her and they never really had interest in drawing pictures, but after seeing this, they decide to draw things and wanted it captured.

I’ll share some photos of them once they are made 🙂 In the meantime, if you are stuck for a gift or if you want to capture your child’s precious moments, simply hop online via www.bellefever.com.au or reply this email and I would be happy to do that for you while making sure all the details in the drawing are captured by our fantastic designers.

MY MOMENT . MY STORY . MY BELLE FEVER

It doesn’t last long

It’s such a lovely sight seeing the beautiful art work made by children, and it’s an even wonderful feeling helping the parents capture those precious moments and memories of their children while they are little.

When one of our Business Builder’s approached us on behalf of their customer, to create their child’s drawing into jewellery it was a challenge but something our team was excited to take on. The customer sent through a photo of their child’s drawing and our designers got to work. Once the designers prepared the design, we began to hand cut each drawing into jewellery, which was truly personalised for the customer and it turned out amazing.

My daughter Isabella, who just turned 5, saw one of the the drawings and decided to draw our family picture and gave it to me asking me if I could make her’s into a necklace. I saw in her eyes how proud and happy she felt when I told her “of course”. So while I am in the process of doing that, I plan to place it inside a frame together with her drawing (I will send a picture and post it on Facebook when it’s done). I started wondering if my drawings as a child were similar to her’s when I was 5… I guess I’ll never know.

There is such a short window of time when our children first draw their family picture, I wish I had kept my boy’s drawings and turned them into jewellery so I could frame them. It would make a great gift for when they are older or even a nice frame to put up in their first home or to show their kids when the time comes.

Let’s not miss the chance to capture cherished moments in life that we would like to remember and carry with us.
