We have Stitcher’s Angels again.

Some of you will remember our little Stitcher’s Angel charms – like the Ivory Inch, they are hand crafted from old ivory piano keys. Last week Sarah, our new team member, spent the day soaking, washing and hand finishing the pieces of ivory prior to sending them for engraving. Not every piece survives this process as each one has to be drilled individually and some are just not robust enough to withstand the ordeal. Some of our Members have turned these in to earrings, some attached to scissors or chatelaines. Either way they are just lovely – we are always looking out for old piano keys so let us know if you know anyone throwing them away!To find them in the shop just click on the link and scroll down the page
