Hand-crafted Jewellery With Heart

Rich and rare were the gems she wore, and a bright gold ring on her hand she bore – Thomas More

A woman’s essence is captured in so many of the little intricacies that make her just the right expression of femininity that is uniquely hers. Her smile, the way she moves, the smell of her hair…and of course, the jewels she adorns herself with. For me, the perfect piece can be just what I need to finish off a great outfit, or that little something shiny to make me feel like a million bucks. That’s why I have to share my love for artisan jewellery creator, Velvet Parsnips.

Velvet Parsnips creator and jewellery designer, Clare Potterton, is both a good friend and talented artist. What I love most about her fine pieces is the stylish minimalism and delicate beauty that each represents. And the fact that I know that each piece of jewellery has been expertly designed and handcrafted with care and passion, makes each one a real treasure. From beautiful, elegant packaging to the feel of the delicate metal on your skin, you’ll soon know you’ve got your hands on a little something special.

And if the women’s collection isn’t enough, Velvet Parsnips also does a Minis range for kids! This appeals to me so much as a mother to a little girl. I bought a beautiful silver infinity bracelet for my daughter’s second birthday. A treasured gift from me to her – her first piece of real jewellery and a beautiful keepsake.

My personal favourites at the moment are the round tag necklace and the geometric diamond shape pendant that I often wear together. Love!

Already featured in Vogue and Tattler, this brand is definitely one to watch. I’m looking forward to seeing what Velvet Parsnips has in store for the world of women’s accessories. With a real artist at the heart of the business, I’m sure it will never lose its sparkle.

I’ve always been obsessed with design. It’s the way that I make sense of the world — in colour, pattern, shape and texture. I love the rawness of transferring my ideas onto metal, forming them and creating something beautiful. – Clare Potterton, Velvet Parsnips.

Got some Velvet Parsnips jewellery yourself? I’d love to hear what you think.
