In the buy-it-now world, it can be really hard to find the perfect Christmas gift for those you love. Most people seem to have everything they could ever need or simply go out and buy it for themselves. So just how do you find a unique, beautiful, unusual Christmas present for your mother, daughter, sister, auntie, mother-in-law, or best friend? Well, we think our ethical jewellery could be simply the best present they have ever received. Working with the Prince’s Trust and Women Supporting Women, our charity initiative is the Woven for Women collection, a delightful portfolio of amazing hand-crocheted gold vermeil featuring earrings and a bracelet giving you plenty of choices to personalise your gift to the recipient.
Woven for Women
Encouraging and supporting women is essential to Freya Rose. In the early days of business, we were supported by the Prince's Trust and are very grateful for the opportunity we had. Therefore 5% of the profits of every sale from this stunning Woven for Women collection is donated to charity. The Prince’s Trust #ChangeAGirlsLifeCampaign supports young women for a better future in the UK. Half the profit is also donated to our own initiative, which helps women in Bali access opportunities so that they may learn to make jewellery and keep their ancestral skills of traditional crafting alive. Freya Rose is determined to champion young entrepreneurial individuals so that they may realise their business dreams no matter what their background.
“When I discovered the intricate and beautiful technique of woven wire whilst visiting our artisans in Bali, I instantly resonated with the idea that the woven nature of the craft represents the power of women supporting women. The concept behind the weave is that whilst light, delicate and feminine, it holds such strength-reflecting how women are stronger together.” Founder & Designer Freya Rose
Each piece in this collection is modern and handcrafted in 22-carat gold vermeil. The woven for woman collection is a rare East Indonesian craft, and the artisan crochets a distinctive pattern using such a specialist technique. There are only a handful of craftsman women who are able to do this.
This stunning crocheted cuff has rows of delightful chains and is 5 cm wide. It is eye-catching and would make a lovely Christmas gift.
These make the perfect complimentary item to the cuff above. Chunky and unique, these earrings have duplicate crochet rows and form a 3-D curve that curls elegantly round.
The delicate medium open hoop earrings could be the perfect choice for those who like something a little lighter. It uses the same technique of crochet that forms a smaller close-knit hoop that is both understated and bold simultaneously.
At the centre of this collection are the gold weave mini hoops that are offered as a plain but perfectly formed pair or come with various charms. Choose from baroque pearls, rose quartz, peridot, green quartz, blue topaz, citrine, amethyst or garnet charms.
