I love discovering independent jewellery brands, especially when they’re local, and that’s exactly what Moon Tide Jewellery is. Set up by full time mermaid, Sarah, in May last year because she was struggling to find affordable, bohemian jewellery within the UK. Moon Tide jewellery features boho, whimsical themes and uses materials such as semi-precious stones, shells, and raw crystals. Sarah uses natural elements so that you can take a piece of the earth with you wherever you go, which I love, and whilst their supplies are sourced from around the world, Moon Tide try to source as many supplies as close to home as possible, and as ethically as they can, and ethos I really admire. The jewellery designs are inspired by mermaid treasure coves, tall tales and gypsy spells, which is totally magic in itself if you ask me!
Moon Tide offer both plated and sterling silver, rose gold-filled and 14k gold filled jewellery, meaning there will always be something you love. Sarah is also a top babe and is always happy to take on board custom orders to create an item you will love forever, she also has an option on her Etsy store where you can add charms to necklaces etc to personalise it to your hearts desire.
I was given the option to choose something from the Moon Tide store and went for the Mermaid Tear Necklace with an ‘S’ Initial Charm, a necklace that I saw featured on Louise’s blog and adored. I love dainty jewellery, and the initial charm makes the necklace even more special. The Mermaid Tear itself is a super pretty crystal moonstone/opalite, which is actually the birthstone for me, so it makes the necklace even more personal. The stone is so gorgeous and I love how stunning it looks when it captures the light. My order came super quickly in the post and came beautifully packaged in some glitter tissue paper, and the necklace was displayed on a Moon Tide piece of cardboard, which was perfect. Production time currently takes 1-3 days, but many orders are made and sent out the same day you place an order, and if you have any questons Sarah is always available via email or Twitter to answer them for you.
