Jewellery trends for Summer 2020

Keep your wardrobe up to date, by following our style guide to this season’s trending accessories. Investing in jewellery is a quick fashion fix that will bring your look into 2020 and beyond. Here are the hot looks you should know about for Summer 2020 and how to translate them from runway to realway!

Jewellery trends are slower moving than clothing crazes. Styles evolve over time and many of the looks emerging from the catwalk this season are building on trends we’ve seen becoming popular over the last few years.

Initial Jewellery

Runway

The alphabet or letter necklace trend has been growing over the last couple of years. With big players like Dior, Celine and Louis Vuitton creating initial pendant necklaces we knew this fashion was going to be around for a while. It’s the trend that lets you be loud and proud of who you are and celebrate your name! Initial or name jewellery also makes a great gift – it’s the extra thought that has gone into getting something personal made.

Realway

To get the vibe without the designer price tag head to smaller businesses that can create a quality bespoke item for you at a fraction of the cost. Many of our pieces can be personalised with your name or initials. As we’re creating your item for you, you can even select the font and exact wording to get the vibe you want. We also stock initial earrings, bracelets and necklaces that can be created with any letter.

 

Standalone Earrings

Runway

The Single earring dominated the spring 2020 catwalks with designers opting for supersized pieces making a bold statement. This is a fun way to add personality and a nod to high fashion to an everyday outfit.

Realway

To wear this look make sure your single earring is bold enough to hold its own.  A statement earring is best worn with a plain, simple neckline so nothing competes for attention. Not quite ready for such a strong look? Have some fun with mismatched earrings instead. Try mixing up pairs from your existing collection – perfect if you’ve lost one of your fave earrings as you get to pair it with something else! Or go for a mismatched set of perfectly partnered earrings that compliment each other. Shop our range here

Chain-link

Runway

Chain-link jewellery has been in the spotlight for a while, but this summer it’s even bigger, literally! Chunky chains have been seen everywhere from rings to drop earrings, but the focus this season is on necklaces and bracelets.

Realway

Either wear your supersized necklaces alone, over a classic shirt or to dress up a plain tee and jeans, or layered with a contrasting delicate necklace from your existing collection.

If you’re not sure about XXL necklaces opt for a sophisticated bracelet instead. We’ve taken this trend and run with it for our new range – we’ve upsized our chains and used larger links, but we’ve still kept things elegant and timeless. Shop the range here

Shells and Pearls

Runway

Shell jewellery was one of last summer’s biggest trends, and it’s definitely here to stay for 2020 (yay!). The catwalks have featured oversized conch shells as earrings and super chunky (notice a theme here?) boho shell necklaces. Seashells have been joined by their rich cousins, pearls, this year. We’ve seen everything from classic pearl earrings and chokers to delicate pearl details on bracelets.

Realway

For a daintier (and more affordable!) option go for delicate silver shells, faux pearls and mother of pearl. We’ve been embracing the wanderlust vibe and mixing silver with mother of pearl to add an instant glow to this year’s inevitable staycation!  Simple pearls can be worn with anything to give your outfit a sophisticated edge – start with a pair of classic pearl earring and then see where the trend takes you! Shop our range here

Hoop Earrings

Runway

Hoops obviously aren’t a new trend, but these style staples are getting, yep you guessed it, bigger each season! The catwalk saw thick, gold hoops along with the oversized earrings being created with one of this season’s other key trends, shells.

Realway

We think every jewellery collection should feature a range of hoops – the trend certainly isn’t going anywhere and you can wear them everything from a sundress to a cocktail dress. The huge hoops that have been favoured by designers aren’t quite practical in real life, so we’d go for a midsized hoop with a statement design (shop our hoops here).

Stacking Rings

Runway

Designers have been stacking their jewellery high the last few seasons starting with bangles and layering necklaces, now they are using the more-is-more approach to rings.

Realway

This is one of this season’s easiest trend to wear, just keep the rings fairly dainty and go for it! We start with the middle three fingers and add a splash of colour with some Swarovski Crystals (try our birthstone rings for a personal touch). We also like to  add droplet rings for an extra bit of sparkle.

Essential Summer Style

Ahh the start of Summer, with its promise of long balmy evenings and freckled noses! We are real summer lovers here at Inscripture.

Of course, this year is a very different experience. Most of us will be staying home and soaking up the sun from local parks and gardens. That doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun or plan. It just means adjusting our sails a little. Here are a few things our team are loving for the new season.

Make your outdoor space
a sanctuary. We are
lusting over these super cool deck chairs by Anarchy of the Deck Chair. Fix yourself a drink, grab your book/ headphones and relax in style!

 

We don’t know about you but the sunshine reminds us of ice cold glasses of Rosè, sipped as the sun goes down. Our latest discovery is Rosè gin from Mirabeau. Trust us it’s
just delicious! For those
not drinking we love Seedlip paired with
a fevertree tonic and a sprig of rosemary.

 

Not to be an Instagram cliche but all this time
at home calls for some floral fabulousness to lift our spirits. We have been dotting bud vases around the house with seasonal blooms, they never fail
to make us smile. We
are also coveting these heart shape vases from Love Star Loves.

 

Of course, our passion for jewellery is always our number one and we have been enjoying switching it up and wearing some of our more delicate pieces as the temperature rises, layering our necklaces and adorning our ears.

We love our anklets worn with a bright pedicure, just the thing to lift your spirits every time you glance down.

Stay well and stay in touch, we always love to hear from you ♡

Taking a paw print from your cat or dog (or any other four-legged friend!) is easy if you follow our steps…

  • We recommend you use an Inkfree Printing Kit for the best (and cleanest!) results. Click here to find out more. If you choose to use ink, please make sure it is non-toxic and safe for your pet
  • Get everything you need ready and close to hand
  • Choose a time of day when your pet is happy and relaxed
  • Have some treats close by and start by stroking them and massaging their paws
  • Lay your paper on a hard surface like a book or wooden floor
  • Gently clean your pet’s paw with a damp cloth. Remove any dirt and pat it dry
  • Very carefully trim any long hairs that cover the pads of their paws
  • Gently pick up your pet’s paw and press it onto the ink pad or wipe it with the cloth supplied with your Inkfree Kit
  • Make sure the paw is completely covered
  • With your dog standing up, hold their paw over the paper and gently press it down.
  • Roll the paw from side to side to get the whole paw print
  • Lift the paw straight up off the paper, being careful not to smudge the ink
  • Wipe your pet’s paw clean with a damp cloth
  • Give your pet a treat!

How To Use An Inkless Print Kit

Get perfect handprints, footprints, fingerprints and pawprints with an Inkfree Printing Kit.

Prints make a beautiful and unique keepsake:

  • A tiny footprint or handprint from your baby or child can help you remember how little they once were
  • A beautiful paw print from a beloved four-legged friend is something you can treasure forever
  • You can use a loved one’s fingerprint to create a memento that is as unique as they are.

The problem is that getting a smudge and mess-free print can be challenging. Fear not, with a bit of planning and an Inkless Printing Kit you can get a great result. Inkless printing kits are a chinch to use and save you the clean up afterwards. Here we talk you through taking a baby’s footprint and handprint, but the process is the same for fingerprints and paw prints. For extra tips on how to keep your pet happy while taking their paw print, click here.

Taking A Baby’s Footprints and Handprints

Footprints

Timing is everything

Think about the best time of day for taking the print. It could be easiest while your baby is in a deep sleep so you don’t have to worry about them wriggling.

If you think you’ll have more success when your baby is awake, make sure they are comfortable and relaxed in a position where you can easily access their feet. Perhaps while they are having a feed or distracted by a toy.

Do the prep

  • Try to enlist a friend or partner to keep your baby happy and relatively still while you take the print
  • Have everything you need set up ready to take the print before you start
  • Use the paper wisely and work out where you are going to place the foot. You may not get a perfect print first time, so plan how you’ll use the space if you need to give it a second try
  • Have a couple of practice runs without the ‘ink’ to work out how you are going to get the foot to the paper smoothly and check that everyone is in the best position.

Too easy

  • You will need something hard, like a book under the paper to keep it flat
  • Place the paper on the floor or table and have your helper hold your baby and try to keep them happy and distracted
  • Try to have your baby upright rather than lying down so gravity is on your side
  • When you are in position, wipe your baby’s foot with the wipe supplied
  • Hold your baby’s foot gently by their ankle over the paper and lower it down
  • Start by pressing the heel down and then gently push down the toes with your spare hand, applying even pressure so you get a complete footprint
  • Carefully move their foot away as soon as you’ve taken the print by lifting them straight up to avoid any smudging
  • Don’t let the foot touch the paper again to avoid extra marks and smudges
  • Repeat with the other foot if required.

 

Handprints

Handprints can be a bit trickier as newborns have a reflex called the palmer grasp which means they naturally clench their fists. Try taking their handprint while they are sleeping so you don’t have to try and release their grasp. Very gently spread your baby’s fingers out and then, apply the wipe over the inside of their hand. Place the palm down on the special paper first, then get ready to quickly and gently push the fingers down before your baby starts to wriggle their hand away.

The History of Father’s Day

The tradition of Father’s Day has been celebrated around the world for over 100 years. The day honours the role fathers and father figures play in our families and society.


How did Father’s Day start?

Father’s Day, as we know it, began in America during the early 20th century.

The first known Father’s Day Service was organised by Grace Golden Clayton on 5th July 1908 in West Virginia. The service was to honour all fathers, especially those who were killed by a devastating local mine explosion. Whilst this appears to be the first Father’s Day celebration, it did not become an annual event and very few people outside of the area knew about it.

The following year in Washington, Sonora Smart Dodd had the idea to create a special day to honour fathers during a Mother’s Day church service.

Dodd’s mother died during childbirth when she was just sixteen-years-old. Her widowed father was left to raise Dodd and her five younger brothers alone.

A year later Dodd convinced several local church communities set aside a Sunday in June to celebrate fathers. They chose the third Sunday in June and delivered their sermons on 19th June 1910. On this day Dodd also delivered fresh-cut roses to fathers and boys from the YMCA. She gifted them red flowers for living fathers and white roses if their fathers were no longer with us. This celebration started Dodd’s mission of promoting Father’s Day. Over the next 50 years, she travelled America campaigning for Father’s Day to be recognised nationally.

Eventually, in 1966 President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation that officially declared of the third Sunday of June as Father’s Day.

How is Father’s Day celebrated today?

Now Father’s Day is celebrated across the world to recognise the contribution that fathers and father figures make. Some people try to visit their fathers, while others give cards or other gifts. Children often make cards for their dads and some families have a special celebratory lunch.

When is Father’s Day celebrated in The UK?

Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of June in the UK and many other countries across the world. Father’s Day 2020 will be celebrated on Sunday 21st June.

 

Four Fun Father’s Day Facts

  1. According to greetings card makers Hallmark, Father’s Day is the fifth-largest card-sending celebration of the year.
  2. In Germany, Father’s Day is a public holiday for everybody. Known as Vatertag or Männertag (Men’s day) it involves drinking lots of beer, riding a beer bike, and behaving irresponsibility!
  3. The most popular Father’s Day present is a tie.
  4. The Russian, Feodor Vassilyev (1707-1782), holds the world record for having the most children. He is said to have fathered a whopping 87 children. 16 pairs of twins, 7 sets of triplets and 4 sets of quadruplets with his first wife and a further 6 pairs of twins and 2 sets of triplets with his second.

 

If you are looking for a gift for Father’s Day, Inscripture creates a range of bespoke items including jewellery and keyrings. Many of the products can be personalised with foot or handprints, a child’s drawing or handwriting click here to see the full range.

Your Guide To Memorial Jewellery

Memorial, also known as mourning, keepsake or remembrance jewellery offers a time-honoured way of commemorating those who have passed, bringing comfort and enabling you to keep them close to your heart.

The History of Memorial Jewellery

Mourning jewellery has been worn for nearly 2,000 years. Memorial jewellery as we think of it today began during the Renaissance when the tradition of wearing commemorative rings engraved with a name to honour the memory of loved one became popular.

The practice became increasingly fashionable during the Victorian era, particularly after Queen Victoria lost her husband Albert in 1861. For the next four decades, she wore black and commissioned many memorial pieces. As a result mourning jewellery became very popular, particularly lockets containing a picture or lock of hair, black jewellery made from Jet and pendants or rings featuring cameos or silhouettes of a loved one.

Today there are many options for remembrance jewellery from traditional lockets to urn jewellery. Many people also find wearing an engraved heart, angel wing or feather can provide comfort and act as a reminder too.

Lockets

Lockets are often treasured keepsakes that are passed down to the next generation. They offer multiple ways to remember a loved one with the option to store a picture or lock of hair inside, as well as engraving a special message, name or date on the outside.

Ashes Jewellery

Also known as cremation or urn jewellery, these pieces offer a way to keep the ashes of your loved one or pet safely with you. They give family members and friends a way to share a small part of the ashes. People also use the jewellery to store the burial soil or hair from a loved one. As well as pendant necklaces, you can also find ashes cufflinks. These are often worn for weddings, graduations or other special occasions when you want to feel a loved one is close to you.

Angel Wing or Feather charms

Angel Wings are considered to be a symbol of protection and the jewellery is thought to bring a sense of comfort and remembrance for those who have lost someone special.

Handwriting Engraving

You can have your memorial jewellery engraved with the handwriting of a loved one who has passed enabling you to keep their words with you always. The handwriting from a treasured note, letter or card is engraved onto a bracelet, necklace or charm. The engraving matches the actual handwriting supplied perfectly to create a unique and sentimental item. Find more information about handwriting engraving here.

Pawprint Engraving

If you have lost a beloved pet, it is possible to get their paw print engraved on to a charm or piece of ashes jewellery to create a special memorial item.

Whether you are looking for a sentimental keepsake for yourself to treasure or a thoughtful gift for someone close to you, memorial jewellery can be a significant comfort. To find a piece of memorial jewellery that you can cherish click here

What is Ashes Jewellery?

Ashes Jewellery, also known as cremation or urn jewellery, commemorates the memory of lost loved one and offers a way to keep their ashes safely with you. The jewellery creates a very personal memorial that can be passed down through the generations.

⁠The jewellery acts a tiny urn so you can keep a small piece of your loved one with you whenever you wear it. There is a small screw that, once removed, reveals a compartment that can be filled with ashes or other small sentimental items. The jewellery gives people the comfort of being able to carry their loved ones safely with them. It also offers a way for family members or friends to share a small part of the ashes. The jewellery can either be worn or stored in a jewellery box to bring you comfort when you need it.

People often choose to wear cremation jewellery when attending special occasions like weddings, graduations and family celebrations so they can feel their loved one is part of the event.

You can also gift cremation jewellery to help someone grieve or to a relative that cannot attend the funeral so they still feel involved in the event and have a way to pay their respects.

The different types of ashes jewellery

Cremation jewellery comes in a range of different designs so you can find something that suits your style. Cremation pendant necklaces for men and women are perhaps the most popular, but you can also get ashes rings and urn cufflinks too. Urn cufflinks are often worn by the groom at his wedding to honour the memory of a loved one who cannot be there.

How do you fill cremation jewellery?

To fill the ashes jewellery you need the following items

  • A small screwdriver
  • A tiny Funnel and pin (usually supplied with the piece)
  • Glue and a cocktail stick if you want to safely secure the jewellery once filled
  • A soft cloth.

Method

  1. Carefully remove the screw and insert the tiny funnel into the opening.
  2. Use a teaspoon to pour a very small amount of the ashes into the funnel. It’s best to start off with about 1/8 of a teaspoon as you don’t want to overfill the urn or get ash in the thread of the opening. You can always add a little more.
  3.  Use the silver pin to gently push the ashes into the opening of the jewellery. Only fill the item abut 80% full and make sure there is nothing left in the thread at the entrance to the compartment – this will stop you being able to tighten the screw back in smoothly.
  4. Replace the screw into the item and check that it sits flush to the jewellery and turns smoothly. If it doesn’t, carefully remove a tiny amount of the ashes and try again.
  5. Once you are happy that the screw fits perfectly you can choose to secure it in place with glue. To do this, carefully remove the screw and use a cocktail stick to place a thin layer of glue around the thread then screw it back in securely. Use the cloth to gently wipe any excess glue from the jewellery. Let the glue set completely before wearing the item.

What can you put inside your ashes jewellery?

Cremation ashes are the most common thing to be stored inside the jewellery, but people choose to store other sentimental items too. You can save a small amount of burial soil or sacred ground to put inside. Make sure that it is very fine and doesn’t contain any stones or lumps that might be too big to fit inside the entrance to the compartment.

If you don’t have access to the burial site you could collect some soil or sand from a place that was special to the deceased.

A small lock of hair can also be stored inside the jewellery or, if you have lost a beloved pet, a little fur or some whiskers.

Other ideas include crushed dried flowers, perhaps from the funeral or you could dry your loved one’s favourite flower. You could even include a spice or herb that you associate with the deceased – the sense of smell is closely linked to memory and can evoke particular feelings. These ideas allow people who don’t have access to the ashes to create a special memorial too.

Personalisation

Cremation jewellery can be personalised to make it particularly meaningful. There are many types for engraving available as well as charms that can be added to a necklace.

Engraving

Many people choose the have a name, date or quote engraved onto their jewellery item.

Handwriting Engraving

The tiny urns can be engraved with a message in actual handwriting from a treasure note, card or letter your loved one sent you enabling you to keep their words with you always. The engraving matches the actual handwriting supplied perfectly to create a unique and sentimental item. Find out more about handwriting engraving here.

Hand, Finger or Footprint Engraving

If you have a special print from the deceased it can be delicately engraved into the item for you to keep forever.

Pawprint Engraving

If you have lost a pet, it is possible to get their paw print engraved on to the jewellery along with a name and date to create a special memorial item.

Charms

You can add a charm to your necklace to give it extra meaning, including the deceased’s birth flower, birthstone or something symbolic like an angel wing.

Ashes Jewellery is a beautiful and versatile way for you to commemorate those who have passed, bringing you comfort and enabling you to keep them close to your heart. ⁠View our range here.

 

Fun Lockdown Activities for kids

Here are some fun activities to keep your children educated, entertained and exercised during quarantine! Our guide includes the lowdown on online resources and lots of fab free printables for you to download.

Set a Treasure Hunt

Think about how many clues you’ll need, which areas of the house you can utilise and an easy route to follow. Create a letter to your child from a pirate who has lost their treasure and needs their help as an exciting opener for the event.

If you’re feeling creative you can get rhyming and write your own clues or, to save you some time, we’ve designed a ready-made hunt for you to download.

Build a den Den

Making a den is great fun and will keep your little one amused for hours, just get them to agree to help with the clean up before you start!

Collect together some blankets, sheets, cushions or pillows and then search the house for a suitable den location. Under tables works well or the old favourite of a sheet over the top of two dining chairs is a good option. If it’s a nice day and you have a garden, you could always set up outside.

Once the structure is created fill the inside with cushions and blankets to make it as cosy as possible. The kids can take their favourite books and teddies inside and play by torchlight to make it extra exciting. Don’t forget to use the torch to make a shadow show inside the den.

Things you need to get started:

  • Blankets
  • Sheets
  • Cushions or pillows
  • Favourite books
  • A secret password to gain entry
  • A torch.

Have An Indoor Scavenger Hunt

Grab yourself 20 minutes for a cup of tea (or G&T!) with our indoor scavenger hunt. Send the kids off hunting for the items on our list while you take a well-earned break. A scavenger hunt is also a great activity for your children to do during a group call. Email our PDF to all the parents beforehand – the children can all search for the items, while you get ten minutes to catch up with the grown-ups! When then the kids come back they can show their friends what they have found.

 7 Tips For A Better Week

Like most of us, we have experienced the stress, worry and anxiety during lockdown, but we have also found joy in the way we are all so united and in this together. With most days blurring into one, with no real shape to them we thought we would share a daily tip to make your day brighter. 

Monday

Why not write a postcard or letter to your best friends and family? Sit with a cuppa and put pen to paper. Receiving snail mail through the post is lovely at any time but especially now. More personal than a text and sure to brighten their day.

Tuesday

You have no plans this evening so why not make Tuesday evenings your pamper time. Run a hot bath, swirl in that bath oil you save for best and take a deep breath. Now is the time to shave your legs, wash your hair, hair and face mask it up and emerge a new woman!

Wednesday

Today’s the day to make a playlist. Compile your fave uplifting tunes name it “Pandemic at the disco” and play at full volume whenever the need takes you. Dancing around the kitchen table mandatory!

Thursday

When was the last time you watched a classic movie? Think old school Hollywood. Pour yourself a drink, slick
on that red lipstick, and Immerse yourself of the glamour of days gone by.

These are the movies on our list

  • Casablanca (1942)
  • Gone With The Wind (1939)
  • Singing In The Rain (1952)
  • Breakfast At Tiffany’s (1961)
  • Rebel Without A Cause (1955)

Friday

Whether working from home, homeschooling or just trying to hold it all together, try to keep that Friday feeling. It will anchor your week and give it much needed shape. Make sure you have chilled your wine/ tonic water/ special non-alcoholic bevvy and come 5 pm pour yourself a celebratory glass. Pile on your jewellery (shop our range here), lay your table properly, light candles and dine together. Even if you order in, pop it on plates and make sure no one eats their dinner on their lap in front of the TV.

Saturday

Do something fun today. If you have children and the weather is holding up, make a camp in the garden. Use old bedding and chairs to create a base for them. This simple thing has kept our children entertained for hours, they have even taken their tea in there! No children to entertain? Now’s the time to dust off that book you have been promising yourself you will read but are “too busy”. If that feels like too much effort then download one from Audible, lay back, relax and listen.

Sunday

Another week in lockdown draws to a close. Do something today your future self will thank you for. Maybe setting
your alarm slightly earlier so you can do 10 mins of yoga, mindfulness or indeed have a solitary cup of coffee on Monday morning before the week starts again.
