This magical little glass acorn necklace is stuffed with three different specimens of woodland mosses gathered from the forest floors on my walks in the Irish countryside. A beautiful token from the depths of the woods to allow you to keep a little piece of nature close to your heart wherever you go.
Acorns are symbolic of new life and new beginnings, the potential of a little seed to become a forest of mighty oaks making this a beautiful, meaningful piece of jewellery for all the wild at heart and romantics out there. It would also be a lovely little keepsake for anyone about to set off on any grand adventures in life who might appreciate a little moral support on the way.
This piece will come wrapped in tissue inside a lovely custom gift box with a card that explains the heritage of the piece so it's all ready for gift-giving!
The moss's have been treated and preserved so they won't wither or wilt and the acorn is hung on a lovely 30 inch long bronze rolo chain for a lovely draped look.
Ruby Robin Boutique is the romantic, whimsical trinket emporium dreamed up, lovingly handmade and photographed by me, Kay Marriott.
I specialize in unique and romantic handmade jewellery, in particular glass picture necklaces and photo lockets and other jewellery made using Victorian illustrations, as well as miniature terrarium jewellery, cute miniature food jewellery (such as my infamous teacup rings) and fun, colorful resin beaded jewellery!
My work is inspired by many things, my cats, my garden, novels by the Bronte sisters and the wildlife and nature I coexisted with as a child growing up in the wild, windy and often magical countryside in the South of Ireland.
All my pieces are handmade by me in my bedroom studio in the outskirts of Cork City, where I live in the basement of a crumbling, dusty old Georgian house, usually with a cat or two for company, a coffee in one hand, an audio book playing in the background and the odd train rumbling past outside my window.
