December is the busiest month in my work calendar and I attend many events in the hope of drumming up new business. The days are long and often cold and regardless of where you are, you will always build up a camaraderie with other exhibitors, often minding each others stalls whilst you pop to the loo or grab a bite to eat.
At one such event, I had the pleasure of being next to the lovely Beatrice from Merci Maman. Beatrice set the business up in 2007 with the aim of creating charming, unique and personalised gifts for the entire family. I was particularly struck by the expert craftsmanship and passion that Beatrice has for her business. I was enthralled by the beautiful charm bracelets and necklaces presented on a simple waxed cotton braid in the colour of your choice. The clincher for me, was the fact you could inscribe what you like!
Rather than go for the obvious, I decided to have the children's nicknames inscribed onto the heart shaped discs (you can personalise this further as lots of different shapes available).
A few days after my order was placed, the lariat arrived in a beautiful presentation box and I immediately loved the simplicity and charm of the necklace. The fact that their personalised charm bracelets are hand engraved adds to the uniqueness and I have already had lots of compliments.
