Silver pewter hawthorn leaf handmade brooch
Beautiful pewter brooch with the shape of a hawthorn leaf handmade in the UK by Glover & Smith from lead free pewter and inspired by nature. Presented in lovely gift box. This hawthorn leaf brooch is inspired by John Constable's dramatic landscape depicted in The Vale of Dedham part of the Scottish National Gallery Collection
The Hawthorn is a symbol of protection due to its sharp thorns. It is also seen as a tree that brings good luck and prosperity to the owner.
Lead free pewter is not reactive with acidic and alkaline foods unlike other precious metals, and the surface will never flake or chip. Modern pewter is 92% pure tin and small amounts of copper and other metals to give additional strength. It is a plentiful, non-toxic resource which has little or no impact on the environment. This eco-friendly metal does not need polishing like silver and it does not become dull.
