'Her heart was a secret garden and the walls very very high'
A rusty old skeleton key lies almost completely concealed on a bed of moss, lichen and heather as if fallen from a torn pocked onto the forest floor one morning. Perhaps this key is from some secret garden, never to be seen again now it's only key has been claimed by the little creatures of the forest floor.
This little shadow box locket is made from glass and bronze, a vintage skeleton key from my collection (I was given my collection by the son of a clockmaker who had inherited a great big box of them) and real plants and flowers collected from the Irish countryside.
Your new necklace will arrive wrapped in soft tissue inside a beautiful gold embossed gift box for sale keeping.
This pendant is suspended on a beautiful quality bronze rolo chain, which is available in 3 lengths. All the findings are nickel-free bronze.
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.
