Preparing for Robert Burn’s night – a Scottish tradition

From a young age where I had a school project assigned to me on the poems of Robert Burns, I have always had a fascination with his work. I remember having to stand up infront of a packed assembly hall and verse off lines of Tam ‘O’ Shanter and A Red, Red Rose to hundreds of confused children (the fear has left me now!). This year I will be spending it celebrating  my best friends wedding in Egypt but I thought to use up some of last years supply of these tiny roses for others to enjoy a little token of Scotland at Burn’s night (and perhaps as a wedding gift).

It is traditional in Scotland to eat haggis on Burn’s Night (and a wee dram of whiskey!) as well as have a ceilidh (group dancing to Scottish folk music). Burns Night is the 25th January – what are your plans?

One of our tiny, 12.5mm red rose pendants. I love the vibrancy of these roses and how beautifully their little petals curl up within the sphere – so satisfying!

And the matching earrings! Also in rose gold. Both of these items are available in our online shop.

A tiny home grown red rose, perfectly preserved within our resin and suspended from a sterling silver chain in length of your choice. Each Robert Burns inspired jewellery piece comes with his “A Red, Red Rose” poem. I think this would make a charming and thoughtful Burn’s Night or even Valentine’s Day gift.
