Gift Guide Written By Tracy Brown From White Lily Green
A Alicia makes really interesting jewellery made from organic fabrics. A clever twist on typical jewellery trends. I love this bangle. It's modern and unique, but still has that glamorous luxury about it. More and more people suffer from metal allergies so jewellery such as this is a brilliant solution.
How fantastic is the Zip jewellery range from Blue Eyed Girl?! I particularly heart the zip bangles. Such a fashionable statement, yet comfortable to wear.
These stunning earrings are inspired by the designers love for lace, crochet and traditional doilies. They are beautifully intricate and are perfect to wear everyday.
Sterling Silver Eternal Stackable Rings
I have these, and I love them. I wear them everyday and mean the world to me. I actually bought these as a substitute for a tattoo and had the names on my children engraved inside each ring. They are simple, and pretty and I can wear them night or day. These would make a fabulous Mothers Day present or a gift for a new Mum.
Jades jewellery is created using 'recycled fabrics alongside items such as glass beads, freshwater pearls, semi-precious stones, watch mechanisms and other collectables'. In an age where we are encouraged to reuse, recycle or 'upcycle', I think these design ideas are a fantastic example of just that. Each piece is custom made and completely unique.
Pearly pea silver pod
Just stunning. I love the use of freshwater pearls as the 'peas'. Completely original to anything I have seen before. A perfect gift for that special lady who 'has everything'.
Ridley and Dowse:
Another fabulous ethical handmade designer who's stunning pieces create contemporary heirlooms. Their 'Dixie' necklace is beautiful. The detail is intricate and all their pieces are so enchanting.
