Dare we say it? has Summer finally come to Sherwood Forest? All shapes and sizes - gnarled exteriors - Winter gloom starting to lift - and that's just the people! More jewelry is about to be added to the website - so keep looking'
Here in England we are experiencing significant changes in our weather patterns. Only 30 years ago we could look out of our window at home and tell what time of year it was - just from the weather. Now, our seasons merge - we have hot summers days in November and December - we have experienced snow in April and cold days in June. Is it just a freak of nature? Or is it the effects of Global Warming? - I am not qualified to answer that - it would seem everyone has their own opinions. All I know is that thankfully Mother Nature keeps winning through and Sherwood Forest keeps amazing us year after year coping with climate changes mid-season and giving us its' beauty month in month out. So it's fitting that we try to preserve our heritage and thank our lucky stars that we continue to keep our beautiful flora and fauna and try and capture our best-loved trees in precious metal format in perpetuity. Looking forward to Spring (whichever month it comes) when the buds form and brand new leaves burst into our lives. We will keep attempting to immortalise our leaves from Sherwood Forest in a choice of finishes -Sterling Silver, Yellow Gold Vermeil or Rose Gold Vermeil. All guaranteed to be cut from an outline of a leaf collected from Sherwood Forest.
All our leaf jewelry is now available in silver, yellow gold vermeil or rose gold vermeil. Vermeil is the term used to plate sterling silver with a gold covering - the choice of yellow or rose gold is yours!!
We are re-running this competition because entries received were not unique. Other jewellers were using the suggested names. Please do a google-check before submitting your entry e.g. Eternity Jewellery is already used - so Eternity cannot be accepted. Try and think romantically around the Robin Hood and Maid Marion story? Closing date 31st March 2017. Good Luck! Entry form on the website.
We are proud to sell earrings, pendants and bracelets made in Sherwood Forest, the home of Robin Hood. We actually collect leaves from the trees in Sherwood Forest and use them as templates to cut the silver by hand and make the pieces. So each piece is unique and gets certified as guaranteed being made using an actual leaf as the template from the Forest. We don't have a name for this range. So we are asking you to suggest a name that will be used in all our literature in the future. The winner will be able to choose any pendant or pair of earrings on the website as a thankyou. You might want to think about the romance of the Forest and its' history. You might want to think about the famous Major Oak where Robin hid from the Sherriff of Nottinghams' men. You might want to think about the romance between Robin and Maid Marion. The possibilities are endless. Over to you all. The closing date is December 31st 2016 and the entry form is on the website. Have a look round - be inspired!
