Beautiful silver badger jewellery!
I love badgers and have been lucky enough to get up close to a badger in the wild before so I thought it was more than time that I created some badger jewellery.
These gorgeous little badger charms are handmade in solid silver. I then patinate the badger to give him his dark striped coat.
I’ve also made a badger tracks charm and think they look particularly lovely alongside each other on these stunning faux suede bracelets.
My latest badger design features this Art Nouveau inspired badger with leaves, flowers and a Peridot gemstone.
The proceeds of all my jewellery supports my work raising awareness of the decline of our wild hedgehogs. I know badgers are one of the only natural predators of hedgehogs so you can kind of see it as hedgehog karma that badgers are somehow helping them out!
Not that I blame badgers for the decline in hedgehog numbers. Although a badger will eat a hedgehog, hedgehogs are still declining in urban gardens where there are few badgers. All wildlife is suffering due to habitat loss caused by humans. They are being squeezed into smaller and smaller habitats and forced to eat what they can to survive.
So I love badgers and hedgehogs and I love that these badgers help the hedgehogs!
p.s I know it’s not badgers but whilst we are on the subject of tracks, I just had to share the new hedgehog feets charm. Contact me direct about these – they are so popular they have not yet made it to my shop!
