KnitBritish Festive Advent: day six

It is rather nice to give individual gift ideas there own post. This way there isn’t a lot of lovely things in one post all competing for your attention.

If you like your jewellery, you are going to want to leave this post open in full view of your gift-buying significant other!

Red Houss is Shetland based artist Mike Finnie who creates textile inspired jewellery pieces crafted in silver, The Fair Isle range uses traditional Fair Isle knitting patterns from some of Shetlands finest knitters and no two pieces are identical. Included in the range are rings, brooches, pendants, and earrings. The work is quite exquisite and, truly, an item from Red Houss would make a very special gift indeed.
I particularly love the shed brooches and the jumper pendants and pins…the pins would be lovely on a shawl.

Oxidised silver, copper and/or brass Shed brooches. £35-75

As well as the pieces available from his website Mike also takes commissions, but due to the time it takes to get the hallmarking done in Edinburgh, he is not taking commissions for Christmas.

Prices for jewellery on the website start around £30 and go upwards of £125. Please check out www.redhouss.co.uk and contact Mike with your interest. The last posting date for Christmas from Red Houss is 18th December and items are sent special delivery.

It is really wonderful to see Shetland textiles captured so beautifully and thoughtfully in silver.
