16 Dec Christmas Gift Guide – Day 8
I am writing this on my sofa with my legs tucked under a blanket because it is brass monkeys outside.
The name Brass Monkeys seemed apt.
In 2007, they relocated to a gallery in Hove, East Sussex. It has workshop space for six resident makers – and is much warmer.
But they kept the name.
Brass Monkeys is known for its range of hand made British contemporary jewellery to suit all budgets.
It would make a wonderful gift – if you can bear to part with it that is…
Created from oxidised sterling silver, the three overlapping hand-hammered pendants are finished inside with 22ct yellow gold leaf.
Brass Monkeys offers free postage on all UK orders, but a visit to the gallery, which is housed in a refurbished second hand furniture store, is well worth it. Ranges from the 45-plus designers who sell through Brass Monkeys are displayed in wonderful antique cabinets.
You can even unleash your inner designer and commission a bespoke design in the onsite workshop.
