Dear janie, Thank you so much. It really is very special dealing with such a personal web site.

Hi Janie Happy New Year! I just wanted to say thank you again for creating and sending us the earrings so quickly for my mom's Christmas present. She absolutely loved them.

Dear Janie, Thank you! The necklace arrived safely this morning and it is really gorgeous. I know my daughter, Kate, will cherish it.

Now I would like you to make me a beautiful piece with the beads and at least one hand in silver, and whatever else you think would work ..maybe nothing more, but trust your eye completely. I would love a quirky stylishly classy necklace made up by you. I know you will do this beautifully for me.

Dear Janie - thanks so much! Yes you're my source of xmas and birthday presents I have a few of your necklaces now and wear them almost every day!

Dear Janie, The earrings arrived and are very beautiful. I am wearing them as I write,

Thank you for coming back to me so quickly. I've bought several items of yours over the years for my Mum... as we are both big fans of your work and we often get asked where we purchased our jewellery.

I do love your jewellery. I first became aware of your work through the items you made for Toast a few years ago, I am a frequent browser on your website and several of my most loved items came from you.

this is a belated thanks for the lovely things you sent me recently I've had a few pieces from you before but this order was perhaps the best. The earrings are my new favourites, and the Afghan bead is really special

Janie, I have received my necklace this morning. Wow! I really resonate with it. Oh my .....I simply LOVE it. Thank you SO much.

Thanks for your message. Actually I look at your website quite often and I'm always interested to see what you have been doing. I guess I am a Janie Bates collector as I don't really like any other jewelry!

Thank you very much, Janie. The necklace has arrived safely and is absolutely lovely. Very striking and pleasing. I really love your work and am also tempted by the pale blue stones with the silver spacers... just pondering that one...! I really don't wear much jewellery but I can't resist yours!!

Dear Janie, Yes, I got the necklace today and it is just beautiful - I think it's probably my favourite so far. I've been wearing it all day, and it'll go back on tomorrow! Thank you so much, Best wishes, Lyn

Thanks again I am very happy with how it looks and feels and quality is amazing. My husband is buying me the pieces as a Christmas present - at least this year I get a great gift I want. ?? I am sure I will be back for more.

Thank you for sending out the jewellery so promptly and for sorting out the payment. I am so thrilled with the necklace - I have worn it more or less constantly since receipt. I don’t suit gold so to find a rust themed piece (rust does suit) with silver accents, rather than gold, is a win-win.

Got to work this morning and your necklace has arrived and I’m wearing it now I LOVE it and am so pleased with it, you have done it beautifully – thank you so much.

Hi Janie...its arrived and it's stunning... much bigger than expected too...bonus! I love it, feels very special thank you so much.Best wishes Sylvia

I was just about to order a toast pinafore dress when I came across your stunning necklace... Alas it's sold out... Great to have found you...your pieces are so much more than decorative pieces , real "tummy turn-overs"!!!

I gave your necklace to my friend for her birthay and she was delighted: secrecy, talisman, miniature and colour... She said it encompassed everything she is fond of! Thanks a lot for such a delicate work.

Dear Janie, I have now done all my friends Christmas gifts thanks to your lovely jewellery. They will be delighted as each purchase has been so special and beautiful. I am delighted with the little keyring! Thanks so much from one Wirralian to another. Have a lovely Christmas! Best wishes and much gratitude from Jackie

Thank you so much for replying to my messages so soon – I am so pleased that I can buy the Alexa necklace for my daughter as I think it is the nearest to the beautiful Hebron which I will treasure. I feel extremely fortunate that I was able to buy such an unique item and, not surprisingly, I see that they were all sold by pre-ordering them. As you say, they are a collectors item and you must be so pleased to see that the customers of TOAST really appreciated not just the beauty of the item but also the history.
