Silver Sewing Charm Necklace

Silver Sewing Charm Necklace

from 180.00

Sterling silver sewing themed necklace, featuring a mini thimble, tailor’s shears and a cotton reel, handcrafted from solid sterling silver.

The thimble and thread spool were initially carved from jeweller’s wax before being cast into solid sterling silver. The scissors are made in two parts, then riveted together, so they open and close like real scissors (the blades have been purposefully blunted so they won’t actually cut anything though!)

The cotton part of the reel is covered with a thick coating of 22ct yellow gold, and the thimble is set with your choice of 2mm diameter precious gemstone.

I initially made this necklace as a custom 60th birthday commission for a super-talented seamstress, but so many people have contacted me to ask if they can order the sewing necklace, I’ve now made them available to purchase.

The silver charms are handmade to order in my London studio and polished to a high shine. They are then strung on a quality, British manufactured sterling silver trace chain, which is available in a standard 18″ length, a longer 24″ length and an extra-long 30” length.

  • The dressmaker’s scissors measure 3cm in length

  • The thimble measures just over 1cm in length

  • The cotton reel measures just under 1cm in length

Beautifully detailed, this necklace makes the perfect gift for anyone who loves to sew.

As all jewellery is hand made to order, please allow up to two weeks for UK delivery and up to four weeks for international shipping.
