It's true that VCJ bangles are flexible and can be opened and closed around the wrist to fit most sizes. But what about the wrists that don’t fit in the “most sizes” category? The bangles in the picture are all the same width but the circumference ranges from 16cm – 20cm and can be made longer or shorter to fit your size. It's not just the narrowest bangle widths available but up to the widest of 5cm. So please get in touch if you need a smaller or larger size and can't find one as we do have them.
That tapemeasure's given me an idea for a new design...
VCJ are looking for a reliable jewellery outworker who has a good eye for design and attention to detail to help with the production of new collections. The jewellery is made from anodised aluminium and duties include cutting, filing, polishing and forming bangles, earrings, pendants, rings, hair slides etc to a high standard. Please visit the website to see the kinds of pieces that require making www.verycolourfuljewellery.com
The painted aluminium sheets are posted out with instructions of what’s needed for making up, eg bangles, earrings etc. Payment is £2 per piece, except earrings which are £2.50 per pair. (I can make approximately 6+ bangles in an hour, earrings take a bit longer hence the increased rate.)
Please note, this is not a full-time position and the amount of work can go up and down throughout the year. It would be ideal for someone who wants some extra work that can fit around their everyday life. Applicants need to be UK based but precise location is not important as work can be sent by post.
For further information please message me with details of your experience and availability to firstname.lastname@example.org
