Totally loved my delivery from Marta! I love the option for customising my colours and they always arrive in delightful packaging with a little alpaca clip. The magnet clip bracelets are my go to and I have a few varieties now to choose from. You can have them made to match any outfit you have, or just choose your favourite colour combo if you don’t see it in the list! Also the hand written note in the delivery makes the whole experience a very personal one.
So pleased I found Marta!
I saw these bracelets and they immediately caught my eye.
Ethically sourced, cruelty free, eco friendly, durable & hypoallergenic so they tick all the boxes.
The colours are beautifully blended and work perfectly together, so the biggest issue was choosing. I ended up with three. They arrived safely the next day, beautifully presented in soft cotton bags, but more importantly they look stunning on!
A perfect gift for yourself, or for someone else. I absolutely love mine
What amazing service... I ordered my bracelets on Sunday morning and they have just arrived.. in less than 48 hours... all beautifully wrapped... I’m soo pleased... thank you x

You can really see & feel the love she has for the materials she uses. A fabulous personal touch is the enclosed message from Marta!
I ordered two bracelets … beautiful bracelets from a lovely lady. They arrived very quickly and came beautifully packaged … my little Alpaca peg lives on the top of my PC now :) I would thoroughly recommend these products. They make a lovely, unusual, special gift and a lovely gift to yourself as well.
Love mine… It was packaged/presented beautifully in recyclable packaging and is just as beautifully crafted. I love the fact that everything has been thought through ethically and environmentally… I shall be treating myself to another one soon!!!
Such wonderful designs, lovely vibrant colours, great quality, and options for customisation. I ordered a lovely bracelet for myself. As I was opening it my husband nosed in to have a look. He grabbed it before I ever got to see it on. He loved it, and seeing how it was his birthday I didn't have the heart to snag it back. Happy Birthday! Now I'm just going to have to order another one. wonderful products. Amazing service. I am so pleased.
Beautifully made, high quality, adjustable and comfortable bracelet with a good sturdy clasp. The colour is just gorgeous (actually can’t stop looking at it!). Lovely packaging and excellent customer service too, so I’m really delighted with my purchase, and may have to order another...
TECHNIQUE & FINDINGS
To create your bracelet I used a technique known as a thread wrapping.
This technique consists of artfully wrapping alpaca yarn around a cotton core by hand. Thanks to this, the beauty and extraordinary softness of alpaca fleece are presented in a unique way.
– HAND-BLENDED BRITISH BABY ALPACA yarn (100%)
– cotton cord
– stainless steel
Surgical stainless steel has a hypoallergic formula. Unlike silver or gold, it does not require maintenance, cleaning and care, so you can enjoy its beauty and gloss without much effort. The surface is resistant to oxidation and corrosion. The components don’t start to smell or tarnish after time.
The bracelet will arrive in one of my pouches. All the materials I use for packaging are environmentally friendly
and recycled, from the acid-free tissue paper to the unbleached postal box it arrives in.
If you are wanting to send this directly as a gift then just fill in the ‘notes’ section at check out and I will add a personalised message if you require.
YOUR JEWELLERY. YOUR CHOICE.
Where is your jewellery made?
All special pieces are created in a small workshop in Norfolk by myself. This is where carefully selected baby alpaca yarn turns into exquisite bangles.
What is the ethicality of the bangle?
The fibre your bracelet is made of is sourced from British alpaca farms that been chosen for their concern for the welfare, safety and comfort of their animals.
On these farms alpacas are shorn only once a year to avoid health risks, mainly overheating. Great care is taken to ensure this process is stress-free and kind. The fleece is "only" a luxurious benefit of improving the quality of life for animals.
Why your piece is so unique?
The distinctive yarns which I use are a mixture of natural and dyed fibres, blended by hand and spun in very small batches in a tiny mill in Scotland. They are beautifully soft with oodles of character and impeccable provenance. This is why your jewellery has an exceptional colour and is one of a kind.
I hope you really enjoy wearing your own special, unique piece.
