We know you will love our handmade “make a wish” pewter pebble with the flying seeds from the dandelion, the ones that in summer we blow and make a wish. Hold the pebble in your hand, focus and make your wish. A very unique gift for that special person, bridesmaid, friend or teacher. This pebble is made from hand poured, lead free, British pewter. When we receive them we lovingly hand sand and hand polish each one. We hand strike each letter and detail into the pebble. We know that you will be giving this pebble with love and so a genuine Swarovski red crystal heart is supplied with each pewter 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 by hand. 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 little tin measuring 5cm in diameter nestling in 100 % recycled, natural coloured, shred that is recyclable. The tin can be reused for trinkets or special treasures making our packaging environmentally friendly as there is no waste.
How to look after your pebble:
Pewter is naturally a silver colour and does not tarnish. If you have been making lots of wishes and need 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 a waterproof as possible but if you clean it too much the ink may fade. Pewter does not like harsh chemicals or chlorinated water and 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.
