Cley Designs Personalised Handmade Jewellery | Review & Giveaway

Since Rowan was born I’ve been looking at different ideas for personalised jewellery featuring Rowan’s hand and footprints, a little memento of him at the age he is. A few weeks ago Cley Designs contacted me and asked if I’d like to review an item from their personalised jewellery collection and I couldn’t resist as their range of products is truly beautiful.

Cley Designs Handmade Jewellery Review & Giveaway |

Cley Designs are based in Lewes, East Sussex and pride themselves on creating treasurable, handmade and bespoke jewellery that holds meaning and memories for their customers. They have a wide range of products to choose from that are all handmade in their studio, including necklaces, bracelets, rings, keyring and cufflinks.

I was completely spoilt for choice and eventually narrowed it down to a pair of cufflinks that I could give to Alex for Christmas (although I couldn’t resist showing them to him when they arrived!). I chose the Personalised Hand & Footprint Cufflinks that are made from sterling silver. They come in different shapes and you’re able to choose what personalisation you liked, either a set of two handprints, footprints or one of each and the finish of the product.

Once selected I was then posted an Inkless Handprint & Footprint Kit to capture Rowan’s prints. The kit was easy to use and completely mess free, perfect for using with toddlers. All you needed to do was wipe the hand and foot with a small wipe and then place them on the sensitive A4 paper provided in the kit, then magically Rowan’s prints appeared, thankfully Cley Designs sent two sets of the paper as we smudged the first one! Once completed we then had the option of posting the prints back to Cley Designs or scanning them.

The whole process from placing the order to receiving the final product took only 10 days, that really impressed me. I was kept updated throughout the process and sent an email when the cufflinks had been despatched along with some stunning images of what was to come. I couldn’t resist using the photos they’d sent as the ones I’ve taken really don’t do the cufflinks justice.

Cley Designs Review 3 |

When they arrived, they were presented in a lovely jewellery box and they looked absolutely perfect and I’m so pleased with how they’ve turned out, Cley Designs have done an amazing job and the cufflinks are superb quality. Rowan has giant thumbs and big toes and I could tell just by looking at the cufflinks whose little foot and hand was on them!

Alex absolutely loves the cufflinks too and can’t wait to wear them for work, this is quite reassuring coming from Alex as he’s incredibly choosy about his cufflinks and doesn’t like wearing any that are too fussy. He thought these cufflinks looked great and the simple design would wear well in the workplace whilst giving him a little reminder of Rowan.

These cufflinks retail at £89 which I think is reasonable due to the high quality, uniqueness and being made from sterling silver, they’ll last for years and years.
