Summer is blossoming and so could your jewellery cabinet and wardrobe! With a huge range of beautiful handcrafted jewellery, as well as accessories, here at Manchester Craft & Design Centre we’ve got a whole host of seasonal treasures. Think vibrant colours, natural influences and of course, quality craft.
Amy Wilkinson‘s Butterfly Collection beautifully introduces the summer by taking inspiration from natural forms.
As seen here in her Butterfly Bracelet, the delicate butterfly forms cascade down the silver chain creating a hive of activity and displaying the beauty of the silver material.
