This magical little botanical acorn necklace was by preserving moss from my favourite woodland walks in a sphere of crystal clear resin for safe-keeping. This enchanting treasure captures the light beautiful in a feast fit for any magpie eye. A beautiful keepsake from the depths of the Irish woodlands to wear close to your heart or gift to a fellow nature-lover.
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 my custom packaging ready for gift-giving.
The findings are all nickel-free bronze, the chain measures 30 inches.
The moss has been treated and preserved so won't wither or die but take care to keep your piece dry and store it away from direct sunlight.
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.
