The secret garden necklace features a shadow box locket with a tiny garden encapsulated inside. This strange locket was made with real dried flowers, plants and moss gathered and preserved from the Irish countryside to create an enchanting woodland scene in shades of greens, brown and ivory.
This collection was inspired by dusty old curiosity cabinets, strange things found in natural history museums and the smallest and most often unnoticed creatures of the natural world.
The locket, made from glass and bronze, I have glued the door shut to safely preserve the specimens enclosed inside. The chain is made from nickel-free bronze, and can be made in a range of lengths, so you can choose exactly how you wear it.
This piece was made with natural materials, so please take care to keep it dry and to store it safely away from direct sunlight.
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.
'The mountains are calling and I must go.'
