    Wonderful piece, really polished silver and delicate details, even better than in looked in the photograph.
    I bought some earrings a few years ago from the hairy growler stall in Cambridge market and those are still looking good too, can’t recommend highly enough (:

    I’ve been following you for years all the way from Australia and always wanted a piece of your jewellery. I feel so lucky to finally own a piece of this special jewellery. What’s not to love about it. Your art is amazing and I love being asked where I got it from as it’s so unique. I can’t wait to own another piece.

    This is another beautiful item from the Hairy Growler portfolio. The shape and design of the swallow is so simple and yet so creative at the same time. It is the perfect size and looks amazing on any length chain. Highly recommended.

Many of the necklace / pendant designs are complete. These designs have a sterling silver chain attached to the pendant from both sides. This design is perfect for looking in a mirror to fasten the necklace. It also makes a fabulous feature of the handmade hook catch (and star if chosen).  The necklace length you choose includes the length of the actual pendant. Do not worry about the pendant dimensions we will take care of your order. Order the necklace length you would normally wear and the necklace you receive will sit in the perfect position..
