Stumbled across by coincidence while foraging for botanicals, I discovered a clearing in a local woodland with a thick carpet of wild strawberries. Using a wicker basket, I gently took several handfuls of the strawberries and left the rest for woodland creatures. Once home and sorted out on my work desk, I carefully separated each one and put them in our drying room. After several weeks, the delicate wild strawberries were ready to be preserved.
The pendants measure 12.5mm and are lightweight. I then suspended these sweet Summertime pendants from sterling silver earring hooks. These earrings are the ideal keepsake for anyone who loves to eat fresh fruit from the forest and wishes to carry a tiny piece of Scottish summertime with them everywhere they go.
