A glittery Christmas gift guide

Hi! I’m Jamie and I’m a member of the London Local Team. I’m also the designer/maker behind Grayjay Studio and will be selling my jewellery at the Etsy Made Local Christmas Market on Sunday 4th December.

I love gold because it has both a warm tone and a festive sparkle, making it the perfect winter accoutrement. And whilst gold has always been a classic Christmas go-to, I much prefer it in a slightly atypical form such as in alternative materials, finishes or mixed with a pastel palette.

Whether you’re looking for a shimmery gift or want to add some sparkle to your own party ensemble, here’s my pretty and embellished Christmas gift guide:

1) ROSA PIETSCH – ENGRAVED ARC BANGLE

Wear all the metallics with a stack of these gorgeous art deco inspired perspex bangles.

2) EDITH JOAN DESIGNS – LEATHER CARD HOLDER

I love colour blocking and these card holders do it right in gold and blue.

3) SLINKY LINKS JEWELLERY – GOLD FRINGE EARRINGS

Shimmery leather and a minimal design join forces in these retro-glam earrings.

4) SUPER DUPER THINGS – METALLIC TINY LEATHER JOURNAL

This tiny metallic hand bound journal comes in the perfect stocking filler size.

5) GRAYJAY STUDIO – GOLD LEAF PINK STATEMENT NECKLACE

For a festive statement, I personally love mixing gold leaf with a soft pink.

6) NAOMI TRACZ JEWELLERY – CHUNKY GOLD RING

The unusual sandblasted finish on this chunky ring creates a distinct look.

7) SUEDE AND CO – GOLD YELLOW LEATHER BABY MOCCASINS

These gold fringed baby booties are just too cute.

8) HELLO MARILU STUDIO – GOLD FOIL LEAF SCREEN PRINT

For a subtle way to integrate a little bling at home, frame up a botanical gold foil screen print.

9) YVONNE ELLEN – CHAMPAGNE IN A TEACUP

Gold doesn’t have to be all serious. This quirky pink champagne gilt teacup mash-up is very fun.

All of these designer/makers are selling their golden wares at the Etsy Made Local Christmas Market at Hornsey Town Hall 3-5 December 11-5pm.

I hope to see you there and shopping local this Christmas!
