June bloom

The British summer is as inconsistent as ever, but that isn't stopping the sun from shining on the Honeybourne studio. New creations are blooming everywhere- here's a taster to get you in the summer spirit!

I loved making this modern twist on a 1st anniversary gift for a new wife. Traditionally, 'paper' is the token exchanged on the 1st anniversary between a husband and wife so we came up with this charm bracelet that features a silver envelope with the couple's initials and a heart shaped stamp. In future years new charms can be added! Gorgeous.

A commission for a horse mad birthday girl. The gift was given for the customer's 18th, we hear 'she loved it and hasn't taken it off since the big day'!.

Personalised key rings- you'll never let yourself misplace them again!

A great gift new to our notonthehighstreet shop; hand stamped messages to suit the young, the old, male or female- it's totally unique to them, or you- if you're treating yourself! Up to 24 characters across three lines can be stamped onto the 4 gram silver fob.

Collaboration time!

This month the boutique worked on another collaboration with London based PR company 'Hotwire'. The concept was a series of silver replica keys, each one a copy of the keys of the company offices around the globe; New York, London, Munich, Paris, Madrid, Italy, Frankfurt and Sydney. Finished with a soft hammer texture they were presented to a lady that had worked for Hotwire for 12 years as a leaving gift, having overseen the opening of the comapny's offices worldwide. 


Our first set of quirky cufflinks are these solid silver lighntning bolts- the customer was treating himself to a special pressie and as a result was able to design something totally unique to his personality- we love 'em!

Next up are a set of cufflinks that were born out of a lovely mail from a customer looking to treat her husband. She told us her husband was a passionate skier and would do anything to give up work and ski all day long! Whilst we couldn't quite grant that wish, we like to encourage a little dreaming at Honeybourne Jewellery so we created these ski cufflinks: the customer can let everyone know where his heart truly lies now with just a flash of his wrists!

That's all for now folks, come in to see the makers at the boutique and make your own special creations! x
