This charming handmade silver coloured keepsake box makes an ideal gift for a bride or bridesmaid, but can also be used as a birthday, Christmas, graduation, anniversary or engagement present.
A frond is a sign of protection - The term frond refers to a large divided leaf, but when used botanically it specifically refers to the leaves of ferns. Many fern fronds are initially coiled and as the frond is formed, the tender growing tip of the plant is protected within its coil.
As the frond stems grow, they are known as croziers (after the shepherd's crook) or fiddleheads (after the scrollwork at the top of a violin).
Birthstone for January
Garnet is the birthstone for January and also celebrates the 2nd anniversary of marriage. The name “garnet” comes from the Latin word “Garanatus,” meaning “seedlike,” in reference to a pomegranate's seeds.
Each little frond box is 5cm (1.9”) in diameter and is packaged inside an organza gift bag.
All our keepsake box designs are created by hand using polished lead free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead). The use of solid metal means the surfaces will never rust or flake. Just wash with warm soapy water and dry with a soft cloth.
