Spring is Sprung

6 Apr

We can hardly believe its Spring already. At the Tartan Twist studio in Stirling, snowdrops and crocuses abound and Fluffy the Tartan Twist rabbit is looking frisky. Crisp sunny days have kept us all smiling.

Easter is one of our busiest times of year with many of the Tartan Twist stockists, such as The National Trust for Scotland, VisitScotland, Dunrobin Castle, Inverary Castle and Eilean Donan Castle, opening their doors for a the start of the new season and looking for new pieces to tempt their visitors.

This spring our Jewel Hearts on plain satins are proving to be a big hit. Jewel Hearts in Aqua on Sky Blue, Rose on Lilac and Sapphire on Cornflower look especially romantic. The added bonus is that these colours are right on trend. Team them with the prettiest prints and nudes for a look that is charming and in vogue. Our Pearl, Silver and Mulberry silk corsages work well with these pieces.

Our childhood Easters were spent on the Island of Skye visiting our grandmother on her croft outside Portree, Our memories are of the whitewashed cottage, banks of primroses, new born lambs, peat fires and homemade jam on freshly baked scones.

Of course, there were always eggs – hand-painted ones to roll down the hill and thick chocolaty ones to eat. We’ve tried to recapture some of the surprise and delight of our childhood Easters in our Silver & Scottish range of sterling silver eggs.

The Chick-in-an Egg necklace on a choice of tartan or satin ribbons is a sophisticated, minimalist piece echoing the trend for longer length pendants. It opens to reveal a tiny bird. We’ve made a miniature version for children which also opens. We were delighted when this piece won Best Scottish product 2008. Together they make wonderful Mama & Baby gifts for a mother and daughter.

Our sterling silver Filigree Egg is one of our best sellers and it’s easy to see why. Like all our adult necklaces, this piece is hallmarked by the Edinburgh Assay Office. A stunning pendant in its own right, it also opens to take a favourite quote or message. It’s an ideal place to hide a tiny keepsake. These are the perfect pieces for the chicks in your life!

Happy Shopping

Love from

Gillian & Lyndsey
