W Hamond to host Whitby jet garden at flower show

Brand teams with designer Fiona Alexander for Tatton Park showcase.

CW Sellors’ Whitby jet jewellery brand W Hamond is set to host a British gemstones-inspired garden at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Tatton Park Show in July.

The brand has teamed up with designer Fiona Alexander to create the garden as part of CW Sellors’ work to educate consumers on the background and history of British gemstones.

The garden’s concept it based on the evolution of the Whitby jet gemstone, journeying from Jurassic beginnings as the wood of the Monkey Puzzle tree through the fossilisation process and the gem’s eventual use in jewellery design.

The layout of the garden will feature coastal planting, with the Monkey puzzle tree and fossilised jet used in the design alongside a water feature that symbolises Whitby jet’s journey.

A statement from CW Sellors said: "In addition to the aesthetically pleasing nature of the garden, it also promotes environmental responsibility and sustainability through the use of a natural product and shows materials future potential in the form of a gem stone.

"W Hamond will also have a trade stand at Tatton flower show which takes place from July 25 to 28 2013."
