 Jewellery inspired by nature

 Does she love slow Autumn walks through leafy forests? Or does she have a soft spot for fluffy, bouncing bunnies? Jewellery pieces inspired by the charm of nature are sure to bring a smile to her face instantly. Whether they come in the form of budding flowers or  prowling animals, these accessories are sure to stand out from their collection and become much beloved choices for any celebration.

 Filigree

 Filigree detailing on an item of jewellery has always been revered as an object of artistic creation. The ethereal strings of threads, beads of other dancing elements that curve around the item are commonly chosen to give an intricate semblance with a dream-like effect. Gone are the days where filigree arts was reserved solely for expensive heirloom pieces such as gold or silver ornaments. These days, custom-made filigree jewellery can be crafted in various arabesques, vines and other shapes.

 The final beauty when it comes to handmade jewellery is your ability to customise the design. By talking directly with the designer, you can create a item that is utterly unique and special for your loved one. Alongside this, with their handmade nature, these exquisite accessories are never exactly the same. Crafted with the hands, skills and expertise of the artisan in question, they feature slight differences in each piece that make them even more special.

 As the most magical time of the year rolls around, choose a gift that will have them smiling from ear to ear.
