These mini veg pins celebrate different seasons – the pea grown in spring, artichoke in summer and turnip in autumn and winter.
Sterling silver pin with 18 carat gold plate and vitreous enamel.
Pink, shaped like a heart and the source of nourishment across the world, the sturdy turnip symbolises love and strength across many different cultures from China to Scotland.
This sterling silver and enamel pin has been created throughout 8 different workshops in the UK – each with their own specialist skill from mounting to polishing to enamelling – the latter being an ancient British craft that we sadly see less and less.
All of our enamel products are created with vitreous enamel meaning that they are made of glass and not plastic resins. The process of vitreous enamelling is an ancient skill that takes years of discipline to perfect and was historically employed by masters like Lalique and Fabergé.
Vitreous enamelling is a fading art that is only practised by a few artisanal makers in the world. We are very proud to uphold the traditions of the craftspeople who help us to make these beautiful products.
