It’s 2020 lovely people, and boy are we glad to see it! We’ve decided that this year is the year of YOU, to own and to love – and we believe that should be reflected in your jewellery too. This is the year for individuality, awareness of what you’re buying, expression and embracing the unique. We are bringing you a birthstone run down at the beginning of every month, tales of the legend behind your individual stones, alternatives and properties. The New Year is here and we are ready for it.
It is no big secret that the fashion industry has a detrimental effect on the planet, particularly highlighted by the environmental movement that is unfolding across the globe in 2019. The fast-fashion, or ‘throwaway’ fashion, trend has been facing heavy criticism for producing products without much of a thought for the environmental damage they may cause.
Whether you love it or you hate it, Valentine’s day is here to stay. We just LOVE love, and we are here to help you fully embrace the Valentine’s day spirit. Here at Tegen Jewellery, we always stray away from the traditional path, nurturing unique ideas and creating pieces taken from life experiences, travel, the ocean and everything cosmic. While we love all the traditional Valentine’s gifts, flowers, chocolates and date nights, jewellery is by far the best gift in our (slightly biased) opinion. We have a treasure trove of glittering gems that Ariel would be proud of, plenty of which are perfect for a Valentine’s present that your loved one will treasure forever.
For many people, across many cultures, for centuries now, different stones have had different meanings and have been worn for different reason. Stones can mean different things for different people, whether it’s an attachment to a person, a time or a place, an acknowledgement of heritage or a link to a property that the stone may hold. While some of us love to know and attach a meaning to our stones of choice, others simply love the stones themselves – just as valid a reason to be wearing your very own treasure. We have some favourite stones here at Tegen Jewellery and we’d like to tell you why we adore them so!
That’s right merpeople, wedding season has arrived! We adore this time of year, when happiness is abundant and people celebrate their special days. We absolutely love being a part of that here at Tegen Jewellery – which is when we hear commissions coming calling!
Lest you’ve forgotten, it’s Mother’s Day on the 11th of March! Believe it or not, the year had roll around again, and now it is the time we celebrate the wonderful women in our life, be they mothers of a conventional sense, or just those magic women who have been there for us, always. Mother’s Day gifting doesn’t need to be difficult – we’ve got your back for some ideas if you feel a little out of your depth.
All the Little Loves…
Back with a vengeance after the January blues and February is the month of love! We cannot wait to see what treats Valentine’s Day brings, be they from a significant other or you decided it’s high time you treat yourself! We’ve got you covered with Valentine’s treats galore – trust us, you’re going to love them!
Our 2018 Wish-List of Wonders
Writing our Christmas lists here at Tegen Jewellery has got us to dreaming of all the beauties we want to get making for you as this New Year rolls in. A shiny, sparkly new year calls for some shiny, sparkly new jewellery making toys! We thought we’d share our wish list with you and give you a bit of an insight into the mind of a jewellery maker, as well as introducing you to one of our favourite suppliers: Kernowcraft.
Are you as excited as we are for the festive season? There is something magical in the air at this time of year, from fairy lights, to hot chocolate, to snow days (come on Cornwall!) – it’s sparkly everywhere you go.
