Wool & Water celebrates the belief that individuality is in the details and self expression is the catalyst to communication and connection.
This year has taught me how very important the little things are, whether that is time with family, feeling secure in our physical and mental health and the necessity of feeling seen, valued and included.
Winter may feel a bit harder for some of this year and I loved the idea of offering a simple but effective wearable detail that would help brighten our days as they get colder and darker.
So I created the Mini Bow Ties Necklaces. A small, curious and creative detail that can be worn everyday, for any occasion, by anyone. I wanted a curiosity sparking accessory that was pleasing and intriguing for both the wearer and the observer. Sometimes, it's the little things that can make all the difference.
The Mini Bow Tie Necklaces are handmade accents of individuality, each a curious detail to delight.
I started designing these teeny tiny Mini Bow Tie accessories in late July/early August. The sun was shining and flowers were blooming. I wanted to capture that sense of brightness, joy, the little details of wildflowers, birdsong and sunlight that made me feel light and happy despite the madness that is 2020.
It was important to me that each Mini Bow Tie Necklace felt special, a little touch of uniqueness that could easily be gifted to help lighten someone's load, make them feel seen despite the necessary distance we all find ourselves experiencing.
Each of the 6 Mini Bow Tie Necklaces are knit to order by me in natural, sustainable fibres. I will only make 25 of each and they come individually boxed.
All 6 designs, once knit by me, are then attached with jump rings to 40 cm silver tone chains, completed with lobster clasps before being packaged in teeny tiny boxes featuring their unique edition number will be available on the website from Sunday 4th October.
Who knows what connections can be sparked by this teeny tiny outfit detail...I look forward to finding out!
