This is part of our ongoing guide to Christmas gifts available to order from the traders you can find at Levenshulme Market and have delivered direct to your home. You can read the whole of the guide here.
It’s not been great year, has it? As well as spending weeks at a time indoors, plans being cancelled, social lives put on hold, and plenty of far graver outcomes, most of us will have cherished friends and family who we’ve not seen for months – perhaps Christmas 2019 was the last time you saw them.
So what better way to treat them this Christmas than with a special piece of jewellery, one which they’ll treasure forever. And what better place to buy it from than a small, local business? The traders you find at Levy Market have something for every style – you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing the perfect present.
So here are five options from our traders. All of these are available for home delivery meaning you don’t have to head to market to get your hands on them – you don’t even need to leave your home. And, as ever, these are a mere snippet of what else you can find if you choose to shop local this Christmas. .
1. Silver Stag Pendant from Rooks & Roses
Bold enough for a statement piece yet light enough to be worn as an everyday pendant, this handsome sterling Silver Stag Pendant from Rooks & Roses, inspired by the stags in the grounds of Calke Abbey, has proved popular with customers all ages and makes for the perfect gift.
2. Rutile Quartz Ring from Moon & Sixpence
Well, just look at it – it’s beautiful. This handcrafted Red Rutile Quartz Lucia ring is handcrafted in sterling silver by Moon and Sixpence, one of the most consistently impressive independent jewellers you’ll find in Manchester.
3. Guitar String Bee Necklace from StringEffect
When they are replaced, guitar strings are thrown away, ending up in landfill where they don’t bio-degrade. So StringEffect had the bright idea to re-purpose them into unique and beautiful jewellery, such as this necklace incorporating a tierracast lead-free pewter bee.
4. Feather Earrings from L347her
It’s important, this year of all years, to remember to treat yourself. This stand-out pair of earring, constructed from upcycled leather, are precisely the thing you need to give that Zoom Christmas party the streak of joy it so badly needs.
You can message Andrea at L347her via Facebook with any orders or enquries.
5. Skull Earrings from Sam Self
Ideal for showing up to your work Zoom do with your alternative side on display while keeping things elegant and understated, these wee skulls from Sam Self are made using mookaite and amber beads with an accompanying copper skull inspired by the Victorian memento mori tradition of wearing such things in remembrance of loved ones no longer with us.
