It's iconic, the carved heart, so here's my vintage feel solid silver star keyring - add another for a couple's new home or wedding present.
For lovers, for weddings, for new homes and for Silver Birch Aficionado.
I created this design because I love the film Tell No One (Ne Le Dis A Personne) (2007) - the central couple have spent years carving their initials and years they have been together into a tree whose location only they know.
The other inspiration is how beautiful the Silver Birch bark is.
We used to have a large silver birch tree in our garden as kids, and although my dad had put a platform in and some handy rungs to climb up, we thought we were invincible and above adult control when literally hanging out in it.
The silver star goes through a number of processes - it's hammered to create the bark effect, then hand struck with your initials and the heart stamp before being polished up.
The star-shaped fob is then attached to the stainless steel split ring with a solid silver jump ring, that has been soldiered closed for a secure fitting.
This lovely hand worked star comes gift wrapped in our heart wrapper with a postcard and ribbon.
