In the first part of our Mother’s Day series, we catch a glimpse of how extremely personal jewellery is, and how every piece tells a story.  While many of the tales we hear in our shop are joyous, others unfortunately aren’t.

Last year a customer came into the shop to discuss a specific and very poignant piece that she wanted us to make for her.  Very sadly her new born daughter had passed away and our customer wanted to commission a special pendant that she could wear every day that would hold some locks of her daughter’s hair, as well as embodying her daughter during and after her short life.

We were honoured to be entrusted with such a special and significant piece of jewellery and we started to talk through the design details with our customer.  She was very keen for the pendant to remain small and delicate while including an engraved butterfly and her daughter’s name and important dates.
