London Blue Loveliness

Nadine Treister who stocks Arbor and also works in the shop has delivered a few new pieces recently, but this one just took my breath away...
Nice hey? Oxidised sterling silver, 18c yellow gold and a 6mm round London blue Topaz. Hmmm, birthday present for me, from...me?

Beauty in 2012

Well we made it to 2012 and we have some beautiful new additions to the Arbor family!

Sagen is a new Swedish brand that turns vintage Swedish porcelain crockery into gorgeous jewellery. Sagen means old saga or story and designer Elin was inspired to use old porcelain because of the nostalgic, emotional link they form with the remembered warmth of shared family meals. "They remind me of Sunday dinners at my grandmother's house." With the ongoing fragmentation of the traditional family and communal meals becoming a rarity for many, this link to a bygone time is certainly current.
All pieces are made from sterling silver.
