    Beautiful and meaningful.

    I was lucky enough to be bought a lovely set of these by my husband. He thoughtfully chose a silver leaf to represent me and the copper leaf himself. The three acorns are our children. I cannot tell you how much this means to me! I absolutely love it. I never normally have the time nor inclination to leave a review but on this occasion i just had too. Thank you for making such lovely green and ethical jewellery. x Ally C.

    A terrific piece and wonderful gift!

    I received this piece from my sister for my 40th birthday. When I was born, my Grandmother planted an Oak tree in celebration of my birth and the tree has come to symbolize many things for me. With two oak leaves and two acorns, this is the perfect representation of my family. I love the intricacy of your work, as well as the uniqueness of your ideas! Thank you.

    I brought this as a birthday gift for my mum and she absolutely loves it! The little details are amazing. Plus I left it a bit late ordering so dropped The Hairy Growler a message and received it in just over a week! Wonderful product and even better service. I’m sure my mum will wear it for years to come.

    I recommend you to anyone who want something gorgeous and unique!

    Thank you!!!

    An exquisitely detailed piece that is beautifully symbolic of new life, optimism and hope.

    I had this as an autumn birthday present. It is exquisitely detailed and to me is beautifully symbolic of new life, optimism and hope. I love wearing it and, here’s the very clever bit, because of the three colour metals that add such delicious interest to the piece, I can wear it with silver or gold earrings or other accessories. It goes with everything . . . And gives joy and positivity on any day of the week!

    This is just perfect for the fall time of year especially where I live in Florida, USA. We don’t have change of seasons here. It is hot, hotter, hottest and cool (if we are lucky)!

    Beautifully crafted, this hasn’t been removed since it arrived! A most treasured item from a true artist.

  16. Susan

    A creative piece of jewellery to mark a special occasion

    My daughter had seen some of your work before and requested this for her 30th birthday. She was so pleased with it, especially with her name Emma engraved on the back. The silver and the bronze complement each other, and the way that the pieces have been cut out of the coins is fascinating. Thanks for your creative work which is being much appreciated.

    I love it!
    I bought this gorgeous necklace as a gift for my daughter. She loves Hairy Growler jewellery, and is the proud owner of a chunky silver ring made from a spoon handle, so I know she will adore the necklace. That’s if I don’t change my mind and keep it for myself of course, which I am sorely tempted to do! Wonderful workmanship, great artistry, and completely unique.

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..
