Sweetheart brooch, ‘The Kraken’ #3 from the Myths of the Sea collection.
This Sweetheart brooch is from our ‘Myths of the Sea’ limited collection of only 6 pieces, each brooch being a different representation of the theme. This piece is titled ‘The Kraken’ and features octopus with blue jewelled eyes, attacking a sailing ship (or maybe he’s just hitching a ride?), shell moon, and tiny anchor charm.
All pieces from the Sweetheart jewellery range have been inspired by the popular tradition during WWII, of servicemen sending their loved ones back home a trinket to say they were loved and missed. It was like sending home little tokens of love, and were given to girlfriends, wives, mothers and sisters.
In our modern world it is still a special thrill to receive a hand picked treasure from a loved one, and our pieces are perfect for doing just that! Each piece is unique too…just like your special sweetheart.
