HANDMADE GOODS

All in-stock and made-to-measure handmade goods are designed and produced by The Little Blue Gem’s designer/maker, Gemma Louise. They are made to a high standard and are checked personally to ensure they meet expectations.

Since these items are handmade they should be treated with care, particularly embellished items. Whilst every care is taken to ensure elements such as lace, beading, embroidery etc are strongly attached, and able to withstand wear, all embellished items are considered delicates and should be treated as such.

About Handmade Corsetry

Little Blue Gem corsets are comfortable and safe to wear, but are made with tightlacing in mind. As such, they come with instructions for proper wear and care. However, both waist training and tightlacing are considered body modifications, and as such should be undertaken with care. It is our belief that any form of body modification should never be undertaken lightly, and one should do their research before leaping in.

We have some articles in our blog to help beginners decide what corset is best for them:


ALCHEMY ENGLAND

The Little Blue Gem stocks and sells Alchemy England goods with permission from the wholesaler. Everything listed online is in stock and ready to ship unless labelled as a preorder.

We do not keep every Alchemy item in stock at any one time, as their catalogue is vast! However, we do restock frequently.

Quality Materials

Alchemy use the beautiful English Pewter. Some manufacturers misleadingly use the term ‘pewter’ to describe alloys containing lead. This results in inferior products which are heavier, softer and of a darker colour, and are much more prone to tarnishing and damage. English Pewter is the finest grade pewter, a rich alloy of 92% tin with copper plus a few trace elements, and is regarded as semi-precious. Pewter, like silver, may tarnish, but can easily be polished up to a brilliant shine using a brass or silver polishing cloth.

All Alchemy necklaces come on nickel-free chains (or lace, leather cord, ribbon, etc) and earrings are fitted onto surgical steel posts.

Incorporated into many of Alchemy’s designs are premium cut crystals manufactured by Austrian company Swarovski. These crystals are marketed as SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS, and add glamour, style, and value to pieces.
