This vintage inspired pocket watch encapsulates a tiny robins home with three hand-sculpted speckled eggs nestled in a nest of real moss, lichens and branches! This is such a special piece and the perfect gift for mum or indeed any nature lover who treasures the little things in life.
The locket is made from a bronze pocket watch that I took apart, the eggs are hand-sculpted from polymer clay and painted. I create the rest of the garden using real moss, plants and flowers, not to mention a pair of extremely fine tweezers and bucket-loads of patience! The flowers and plants have all been dried and treated so you don't need to worry about them wilting.
The inner face of the watch is made from acrylic, the outer cover is glass. The outer cover pops open when you press the button down.
The locket hangs on a 28 inch long bronze watch chain and measures 50mm in diameter.
As this piece is made with real plants, please take care to keep this necklace dry, and store it away from direct sunlight when you're not wearing it.
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.
