International Friendship Day-Monday 30th July

We all get by with a little help from our friends. Sometimes more than others. But there’s never a bad time to tell a friend you think they’re golden so we’re loving the reminder of International Friendship day today.

Erica Weiner’s range helpfully takes us from historic pieces to modern twists in the quest to express buddily love. Weiner has two New York stores that see a range of beautiful antique pieces and vintage-inspired ‘future heirlooms’ pass through their doors. If a trip to the big apple isn’t on the cards the website is a temptation on the purse strings as well as a lesson in the history of jewellery.

The seal of approval. Friendship rebus carved from amethyst with red foil behind was strung by the jeweller to make a pendant for the affectionate correspondent on the go.

The idea for this friendship bracelet/cuff was drawn from a personal history and given an upgrade from plaited plastic into cast polished brass – for the grown up with mates with great taste.

A friendship necklace is a lovely present. Maybe Argos won’t take care of it now we aren’t 10 anymore? These classic and customisable hearts are broken so you stay connected in spirit. It’s not just kids’ stuff, friends are important, let’s not forget it however you want to show it.

If your affections can’t be bought (and you would like to make a symbolic gift for a pal) or you want to learn more about the history of jewellery, of course we have a class you.

Don’t Step On A Bee Day 🐝-Tuesday 10th July

The buzz on the street is that bees are pretty important to this little rock we call home.  The bee population in some countries has halved over the last decade and their pollination discos affect far more than just honey production 🍯.

Our busy worker mates are essential to a healthy environment and the diversity of the food that we eat. Friends of the Earth wax lyrical about their importance and what we can do to help save their depleting populations. So, here I am showing you some be(e)auties we can be(e)jewel ourselves with as a reminder to not step on our fuzzy friends. Hurting them, hurts us in more ways than one.

Alex Monroe with his world renowned Bumblebee necklace is a modern British classic.

This childlike bee drawing on a signet ring from Monroe is still fit for a Queen.

Goldsmiths Fair favourite Max Danger’s new collections are responding to his research into bees and beekeeping.

Beehive handmade brings us this dainty piece. Be(e)cause simplicity is sometimes the way.

Hopefully the bees were finished with this honeycomb when the jeweller snaffled them for this organic tessellation treat.

So let’s attempt to halt the plight of the bumble bee, get inspired by their busyiness and make a beeline for your jewellery bench or one of our courses.
