Little Wren

Erica Sharp

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all well. Autumn has been beautiful here in the UK and it’s been wonderful to watch the shift in seasons in (mostly) glorious sunshine. I love this time of year, from the crisp autumn leaves to the sculptural forms of seedbeds and pods; nature never fails to inspire me with new ideas for jewellery.

I had a wonderful commission recently from a customer who wanted a little wren necklace for his Granddaughter whose middle name means wren in Irish. He already had our swallow necklace for his other Granddaughter and the wren would make a matching set for each of them.

After sketching some ideas we decided to go for the wren in flight and I carved away at some jeweller’s wax to make a teeny wren bird. I love the detail I was able to achieve at such a small scale.

Making jewellery like this is wonderful. I will always remember making bespoke and personal jewellery the most. It’s the stories behind them that makes them so special to create; jewellery that is meaningful and symbolic that can be treasured for years to come.
