This is our handmade “always loved” pewter pebble with heart detail. Imagine the recipient holding the pebble in their hand, and feeling your love that they can carry around with them all day. A very unique gift for that special person. This pebble is made from hand poured, lead free, British pewter. When we receive them, we lovingly hand sand and hand polish each one. Letters and pictures are hand stamped. Ink is then applied to bring out the detail of the stamping. We know that you will be giving this pebble with love and so a genuine Swarovski red crystal heart (8 mm in size) is supplied with each pebble.
Each handmade pewter pebble is approximately 3 cm in diameter. Shapes will vary slightly as each one has been hand poured. Stamping placement will be slightly different as each letter is placed individually and then struck with a hammer to create the indentation. You could call this perfectly, imperfect! The indentation is filled with a special ink to bring the words and details to life. It is quite normal for there to be tiny indentations in the surface of the metal. The surface of each pebble is naturally undulating, giving your pebble a lovely feel in the hand. Pewter is naturally a heavy metal and so it feels quite weighty in the hand. We find them very soothing to hold!
Pebbles are presented in a round tin, measuring 5cm in diameter, nestled in 100 % recycled, natural coloured, shred that is recyclable. The tin can be reused for trinkets or special treasures, making our packaging environmentally friendly.
How to look after your pebble:
Pewter is naturally a silver colour and does not tarnish. If you have been holding your pebble a lot and want to shine it up a bit, then use a mild detergent and a soft cloth to buff it up. We use an ink that is as waterproof as possible but if you clean it too much the ink may fade. Pewter does not like harsh chemicals or chlorinated water which may cause a grey hue. Pewter is a soft metal and so any little scuffs can be cleaned up with silvo, but use with care where there is lettering so as not to remove the ink.
It takes us about 2 days to make your pebble as the ink has to cure, and we make each one to order. Please allow about 5 working days to receive your pebble.
