The short story: My magpie swag jewellery creates stunning designs from English folk lore where magpies fly off grasping stolen jewels. My playful eye has cast its spell over an actual magpie foot and turned it into solid sterling silver which is then coated in a thick layer of 24K gold. Set inside the magpie's talons is a 10 mm smokey quartz gem. Please message me if you would like to personalise this bracelet with a gemstone of your choosing.Solid Sterling Silver

The long story: The great and flashing magpie flies as lovers might ..... feathered rascals who share our consciousness of being conscious. My magpie swag jewellery celebrates folk lore where magpie fly off grasping stolen jewels. I have also made this special jewellery to commemorate new research onto the magpies mind, which demonstrates that they are the only birds who share with us a capacity for memory, appreciation, imagination & emotion. Indeed, they are unique amongst all birds and are hte only non mammal known to show mirror self recognition. Truly magnificent.
