DAY FOUR 25% OFF
We love taking inspiration for our jewellery from the natural world and also from our love of Greece.
Our beautiful Aegina Ancient Coin Necklace is based on a replica coin of an ancient 'Drachma of Aegina', an island of Attica. A mould was taken from a 540BC coin that was not only the first Greek, but also European, coin used as currency of the time.
It depicts a turtle, the badge of the state of Aegina, which was the symbol of Aphrodite that protected travel and sea trade.

The Old York Street Party 2012 Sunday saw the first of a new style of Street Party for Old York Road! Musicans, Food Stalls and hundreds of residents transformed Old York Road to a bustling Sunday music festival! With all ages involved there was face painting, ice creams, delicious BBQs and a lot of fun. The weather was beautiful and the day a great success in every way - there is even some whispers of a Christmas event (fingers crossed!) Here are some of our favourite pictures from the day..
I am always inspired when in Greece! I am surrounded by my two favourite colours on this beautiful island in Greece. The flower is a Mexican petunia that we have grown from a cutting and if we are lucky will eventually make a wonderful hedge in our garden here. With aquamarine and amethyst in my head I hope you will enjoy the offer this week. SHOP 20% OFF PEARLS & GEMSTONE JEWELLERY
