I recently posted a request for local businesses to contact me if they would like me to do a feature on them. I didn’t expect many messages to be honest, but the first I got was from Her Lief.
I immediately went over to her page, & began looking at her images as well as all the comments from her followers. And I have to say, I am super impressed. Nicole was so friendly & I love what she is doing with using pre-loved goodies to make absolutely gorgeous jewellery. So hold onto your seats – this is a fab business!
Your name: Nicole
Business name: Her-Lief
Tell me a bit more about your business: I make Re-loved jewellery. Jewellery that gives junk a new life.
What makes your jewellery so unique: I bridge the fine line between costume (non-precious fashion jewellery,) and fine handmade jewellery, usually reserved for diamonds and gold. It’s no-mans-land, which makes it both nerve-wrecking and oh-so exciting!
Do you do custom orders: Most definitely, they’re the most challenging, and also my favourite!
Where can people order from: Direct message on Instagram or Facebook. Alternatively my website which has a small standard range.
Have you always been a crafty person: Yes, I used to make jewellery from washers.
What has been your favourite creation so far: A sacred heart pendant made from melted bottle caps. It has been one of those memorable pieces that has inspired more designs, and gives me new breath from which to create!
Quote you live by: “Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion” – Rumi
Anything else you want to add: In short, my pieces are about the curiosity of the possibility of things. When is the cycle of things truly closed?
Don’t you adore these? They are so unique & beautiful, & would make such a statement. They are the perfect gift for Christmas, or even a Secret Santa that you are looking for something special.
