Well it's come to the end of another birfday week.
I've had a delightful week with nearest and dearest - I spent time with family and picnicked with friends. How very civilised I hear you say? no not really, not when you throw a three-legged race into the equation ... I hope I'm never too old to laugh at such shinnanigans :-) So today, for fave fings friday I wanted to show you a pressie I received this year. I first saw this necklace, and met it's maker at a Country Living craft fair, and it's been on my 'Podie's most wanted' list ever since.
This is a delicate 'Oak Leaf and Acorn' necklace
on an 18" Sterling Silver chain, handmade in UK by Glover and Smith and it's the most perfect gift for nature lovers!
Nature is a huge inspiration to Glover and Smith designers Ed and Judy Glover - who have been designing and making award-winning pewter ware since 1994. Living in the beautiful area between the Wylye Valley and Cranborne has brought them a treasure trove of ideas from the wonderful organic shapes of the natural world. For example, an oak leaf found on a walk in Grovely Wood because their very popular oak leaf jar spoon from 'the woodland’ collection of tableware.
Every piece is handmade in their studio from lead free pewter, and great care is taken to use the highest
standards of craftsmanship combined with the highest quality pewter. Lead free pewter is an eco-
friendly, non-tarnishing, recyclable metal, safe to use with food and easy to care for. Simple, low-
energy making techniques mean each piece has a very low carbon footprint.
I love this necklace, you can wear the charms together or separately. They have some gorgeous jam spoons too - they may have to go on my 'most wanted' Christmas list!
Handmade in UK by Glover and Smith
