Peace Collection - Poppy Sparkles!

Poppy Sparkles has launched a new collection of Christian themed charm jewellery.  Featuring Christian signs and symbols, including angels, doves and crosses. The new collection is ideal for christening or confirmation gifts, as well as those who wish to celebrate their faith and bear witness with jewellery.

Combining Sterling silver with Freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystal, Viv Smith, the designer-maker and owner of Poppy Sparkles has created a contemporary range of jewellery to celebrate faith and provide beautiful keepsake pieces for baptism or other religious occasions, such as First Communion and Confirmation.  The Peace Collection has a range of complimentary necklace, earring and bracelet designs and uses a palette of colours synonymous with purity.  With ivory Freshwater pearls, Swarovski White opal and Crystal Clear crystals, the Peace Collection designs are perfect to wear for a First Communion or Confirmation, as well as being neutral for everyday wear.
Speaking about the new Peace Collection, designer Viv says, “As a mum myself, I know how lovely it is to receive quality keepsake gifts for your child’s christening. I wanted to create pieces that were wearable and had long-lasting appeal, jewellery that will be treasured for many years”.


Viv has ensured that the necklaces are indeed a keepsake, by employing the Poppy Sparkles Charm system, allowing each charm to be easily removed.  The charm system is ideal for younger wearers when they need to upgrade to a longer necklace, but it also allows for the charms to be mixed and matched, providing numerous design opportunities.

The Peace Collection is available from £18- check out the Poppy Sparkles website!

Thank you for Helping Japan

You will have previously read that we are running a 'Art for Japan' scheme where you can get an A6, hand drawn (with markers) picture on a subject of your choosing for £10.00 and £8.00 goes to the Japan relief appeal of the British Red Cross.

We just wanted to say thank you to those who have already bought one and helped to donate to such a great cause, and we thought we would show you some of the fab pictures people have chosen to have!





The best news is there is still time to bag one of these yourself and help Japan! So, whether you want something to represent your children, a picture of you, and animal or even a landmark you love - get in touch!
