Up and coming UK jewellery brand Love Pebble has launched its range of personalised gifts on crowdsourcing website Kickstarter.
Founder and designer, Matt Steel, was inspired by the notion that stones with holes in are lucky. As such, Love Pebble fuses the natural with the man-made as Steel transforms pebbles into bespoke gifts with a precision-made hole and handcrafted metal insert.
Sculpted by the sea, the pebbles featured in Love Pebble designs have already undergone a natural smoothing process over many years. This journey is extended in Steel’s Suffolk workshop, where he crafts them into lasting jewels. To do this he drills a hole through the pebble and inserts a custom-fit metal crown machined from a solid bar of aluminium or brass. The crown features a brushed-finish for a luxurious satin-like quality.
Personalised messages can be hand-stamped into the metal and pieces are also available in miniature sizes.
Love Pebble is currently exclusively available on the crowdsourcing website Kickstarter, a global community platform which helps bring projects to life. The brand’s jewels will be available on Kickstart for 27 more days, with founder Steel hoping for at least £2,500 to be pledged.
