Relaxed, rejuvenated and ready to go!

July 05, 2012

Hello, I am back! It’s been a while I’m sorry… actually I'm not sorry at all because I have been here…

After all the wet and cold weather that this British Summer has bought us a week of sun, sand and sea has done me the world of good.

The biggest decision we made on a daily basis was between the pool…

…or the beach!

Difficult choice ey!


Anyway this blog post wasn’t purely to make you all jealous, honestly, it was a way of telling you  all my online shops are now back open for business! So whether you prefer Not On The High Street, or Etsy, or you can place your orders and commissions now.

Whilst I was away and daydreaming on the beach I did manage to pick up a pencil and jot a few new designs down, just don’t tell Mike as I promised a work free week. I did turn off and relax for most of the week, I promise.

So watch this space for new designs and remember if you like you can follow me on Twitter I am @LouyMagroos , and Facebook too were you can get 15% off you order at to treat yourself or someone lovely.

Thats all for now, Louy x

My mantra for the year - Be kind to yourself

Last year inspired by Jenny Hyde's word of the year, I decided to create a 'Celebrate Jar', you can see my original post here and learn more about Jenny and what she stands for in 2016 here.

Well today I decided to go through my jar, and whilst there was lots of lovely little notes of great feedback, and nice little features or records set, I couldn't help but feel a bit... 'is that it'.

I have just had the best year, better than any forecasted figures my husband helped me do, and even better than the unrealistic goals I set for myself, and yet I still feel a bit, meh!

Last week I spent a great 5 days at The School of Jewellery in Birmingham famous Jewellery Quarter learning to stone set.

I did my degree at this school and haven’t been back in almost 6 years, I think the last time I was there was to collect my results, so I felt a bit nervous on my way there....{read more}

Mother Of The Bride

January 20, 2015 2 Comments

As most of you know I got married in August last year, and of course it was a handmade extravaganza!

Looking back one of the best parts of our wedding was the fun Mike and I both had designing and making the little touches that made the day uniquely ours!

And of course that meant handmade jewellery for all of our favourite people.

So who would like to see what I made for the most important of those people?
