The inspiration for this collection comes from a very difficult and personal journey, one that leads ultimately – and happily – to parenthood. Planting acorns in Autumn, nurturing the seedlings that sprout in Spring and watching then grow through the seasons into trees has very special significance for me. It was once a solitary pursuit, but now is something I do with my partner and son every year.
This collection focuses on the mighty oak which has represented strength and power through the ages.
Acorns only appear on fully mature oaks and are a symbol of patiences, perseverance and hard work. They represent prosperity and growth; as well as strength and stability.
