Game, set and match! We're ready for Wimbledon...

Charlotte Prichard, 25 June 2014

Forget the World Cup, we all know Wimbledon is the most stylish sporting event this summer. Whether you're sitting pretty court side or enjoying a Pimm's in the park, take inspiration from a great British tradition with our Strawberry Patch jewellery. Pass the whipped cream! As usual, it was all hands on deck in our Kent studio as we worked to create our perfect Perspex strawberries in time for tennis season. Our resident photographer Caroline took some sneaky snaps of the making process especially for you: Each juicy strawberry is recreated in glossy red Perspex, complete with tiny laser etched seeds and accessorised with luscious green leaves and delicate hand inked cream flowers. A tortoiseshell Perspex link chain is the perfect finishing touch for this sweet statement necklace. When each charm is carefully hand linked to the tortoiseshell chain, Ayesha sets to peeling the protective film off the strawberries, leaves and blooms. (Love the pink nail polish, too!) Et voila! One Strawberry Patch Necklace ready to head in store! It's not the first time we've taken on our favourite summer fruit. Back in 2012, we created a walnut wood Strawberry Necklace especially for the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow. Inspired by Morris' iconic work, The Strawberry Thief, it was hand patterned with dots of glossy red resin and finished with a soft green leather leaf and delicate golden stem. You can find out all about the project and take a peek inside the William Morris Gallery here. Get into the Wimbledon spirit and shop Strawberry Patch jewellery now!
