Ready to delve into the world of British folklore, nature and animal life? Here’s your guide to Coronation-ready looks with our original art jewellery, handmade in Britain.
A surprise addition to the Coronation Invite, depending on who you ask, the Green Man is supposedly an ancient deity and/or a key mythical figure within British folklore. Supposedly a fertility spirit and symbol of rebirth, his image commonly depicted in sculpture (including the decor at Westminster Abbey) and beloved literature from Wind in the Willows to JRR Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings have firmly cemented his place in the hearts of lovers of myths and legends.
Celebrate the eccentricities of British folklore and make this statement ring the centrepiece of your jewellery collection.
