We’ve got a very special giveaway to launch on the blog today. We know you tea fans love to see something different so we’ve got some stunning jewellery to giveaway that’s been made especially from teapigs by Claire Lowe and madebyhandonline.com

 Claire makes beautiful silver and resin pieces and has handmade an earring and necklace set using our very own Darjeeling earl grey tea! How amazing is that! She has embedded the real tea leaves in the resin to make an absolutely gorgeous set, we love it!

 Madebyhandonline.com is run by lovely duo Katie and Sarah who are passionate about promoting and supporting contemporary craft and crafters like Claire. Their site features super pretty handmade products from some of the finest designer-makers from UK and Ireland. And they really know their stuff too - with a whopping 20 years in-depth knowledge of the craft sector, Katie and Sarah are all about offering an alternative to mass-produced. And what’s more, customers shopping at madebyhandonline.com can really engage with the making process, learn about the makers and their inspirations, and also find out about events, courses and workshops around the country – great stuff!

 We have a pendant and some stud earrings (value just under £100) made by Claire to giveaway.
