Highland cow charms...now more choice!

Highland cow charms...now more choice! 0

Our little highland cow charm has been a very popular piece of jewellery...it's just so cute!  Now, 2 other highland cows are joining the herd.

We have created a black highland cow charm and also a black highland cow version.

These weighty silver charms makes the perfect Highland Cow gift for her.  The charm attaches easily with a silver clip to our oval cut silver belcher bracelet measuring 7.5".  The Highland Cow charm can be unclipped and added to other bracelets and even neck chains. 

The coats on each Highland Cow charm are wound by hand by hand and the horns are made from extra thick sterling silver to give them the strength to be worn as a charm.  The charms are secured with heavyweight swivel fastenings to ensure your mini herd are safe and secure.

White Sussex Chicken Necklace

White Sussex Chicken Necklace 0

Recently we were asked if we could make a chicken necklace as a special birthday present.

We make all our jewellery by hand and having a team of talented silversmiths means we are able to offer a commissioning service to our customers.  Over the years we have made Belted Galloway cufflinks, Shetland sheep necklaces, not to mention penguins and unicorns!

But this was our first chicken and it had to be a very specific breed...the White Sussex.

As soon as we saw the photos of this breed we knew it would work really well in fine silver wire with oxidised silver (blackened) silver details.  The red details on the bird are very striking and we really wanted to recreate these using red enamel.

The result was a stunning fine silver wirework necklace.  We are always in such a rush to get the commissioned jewellery pieces to our customers, we often forget to photograph them.  On this occasion we took a quick photo of the pendant before it was threaded on a sterling silver chain.

Today was the day of the recipient's birthday and we were delighted to receive an email from her Mother who commissioned the necklace:

"Jane is delighted and so pleased particularly when I told her it was a one off, specially designed for her. 
It was the first present she opened and she has been wearing it ever since, the chain is fine, thank you. 
What a talented and clever team you have and your customer service is impeccable, prompt, friendly, informative and very professional."

Our team is delighted to have been part of such a personal and special gift.

If you are interested in having a piece of silver jewellery made to order then do have a look at our commissioning page or send an email to us at info@freshfleeces.com

We recently added some black highland cow jewellery to our range of highland cow gifts for him and her.

We use sterling silver for the horns and nose and the shaggy coats are created by oxidising fine silver wire.  The handcrafted nature of these black highland cow gifts means that each piece is one-of-a-kind and a very unique highland cow present.

Suffolk Sheep Jewellery

Suffolk Sheep Jewellery 0

Suffolk sheep were the breed our Designer, Avril Manderson, modelled her first ever sheep brooch on back in 2011.

Since then we have expanded the range of Suffolk Sheep jewellery to include necklaces, brooches, charm bracelets, cufflinks and much more.

We have retained the handmade quality of the original brooch as each piece of Fresh Fleeces jewellery is created by hand.  The black head and legs are achieved by enamelling the sterling silver making for a striking contrast with the curled fine silver fleece.

Our range of Suffolk sheep jewellery makes a great sheep gift for men and women.

Highland Cow Gifts:  Quality Scottish jewellery

Our highland cow range of jewellery is a very popular part of our animal jewellery range.  Many customers tell us they buy these pieces as a unique piece of Scottish jewellery.

Highland cow are such a striking animal and our team of talented silversmiths love to bring them to life in silver and enamelled copper.  Each piece takes quite a bit of time to make and each cow is a one-of-a-kind piece of art!

We are sometimes asked if the copper will turn green...but don't fear.  We use the purest enamelled copper wire to ensure the copper does not oxidise and change colour.  So your shaggy coated creation will shine brightly for many years to come!

Over the years we have expanded our range to include Highland cow necklaces, earrings, brooches, charm bracelets and earrings.  Our Highland Cow jewellery has travelled worldwide and Scottish jewellery enthusiasts across the globe have taken advantage of our free worldwide delivery.
