A recently established company in 2010, “Our Family Jewels
” create beautiful handcrafted pieces of jewellery inspired by nature and the natural world. I love the organic realism of their pieces and their attention to detail in the rendition of the anatomy of insects and mammals. Our Family Jewels say that they take their inspiration from such everyday things as river bank moss and the texture of clouds and think that this passion for the beauty of nature and for the often overlooked flora and fauna around us shines through in their work. Their pieces are a sophisticated way to wear the woodland trend and I particularly love their ring “Morel Memories” (image two) which is inspired by the honeycomb structure of morel mushrooms. Rose gold is also right on trend and their bangle “The Twiggy Bangle in Rose Gold Vermeil” makes me think of warm sunlight catching a delicate curled twig on the forest floor.
