These romantic keepsake lockets feature tiny specimens of real wild strawberry flowers gathered from my walks this summer around the grounds of the abandoned Dunsandle castle in the west of Ireland. There little wild strawberries grow happily by their hundreds in the woods around the castle, sprawling in the dappled sunlight of the biggest beech tree I have ever seen with their star flowered vines and tiny ruby red fruits creeping right across the grounds of the ancient courtyard. I brought some home and carefully preserved the blossoms before encapsulating them in resin for safe-keeping.
The chain is made with nickel-free bronze and measures 18 inches long. If you'd prefer a different length chain just leave a note in the 'message to seller' box at checkout. The locket measures 16mm across.
Based on the history and folklore of these plants, I have created a truly meaningful gift for your loved one, a bouquet of flowers which will never wilt or fade away. Your new pendant will arrive safely packaged in one of my beautiful signature gift boxes, complete with a gift card.
Please take care to keep your jewellery dry and to store it away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures. If you would like to polish your piece use a microfibre cloth and a polish like Novus or T-cut, or even a few drops of olive oil, gently buffing in a circular motion.
Ruby Robin specializes in unique, keepsake jewellery for the modern day romantic. All the designs were imagined and made by Irish designer Khrystyna Marriott.
The pieces at Ruby Robin are designed to allow the quiet beauty of nature to shine, to stir the imagination, inspire wonder and encapsulate a microcosm of long forgotten memories. I make my jewellery using a range of strange and beautiful curiosities, found in the woods and on the mountain sides, on the windswept beaches and wild meadows.
