Jewellery designer Jane Gowans has partnered with Scottish illustrator Johanna Basford to create a limited edition sterling silver bracelet.

The sterling silver bloom bracelet on black thread is accompanied by a pocket-sized Basford print, carrying the numbered edition and signed by both designers. Only 100 of the botanical-inspired pieces are being created.

For a finishing touch, each delivery envelope is hand illustrated by Johanna, making every package unique.

The piece is based on the bestselling Jane Gowans Minis collection of friendship style bracelets launched in November 2013. The collaborative design of the floral motif was sketched out by Basford and then lifted from the page by Jane. Marrying her design process with Basford, Gowan traced over the organic hand drawn lines in wire to create the initial prototypes before the finished piece was cast in sterling silver.

Basford, who is known for her intricate hand drawn illustrations, has previously partnered with the likes of Dazed and Confused, Sony Music and Nike.

The limited edition ‘packages’ are £40 RRP and can be bought online with free UK delivery at janegowans.co.uk.
