It's a boy!
Posted on 07 October 2016
We've got some exciting news! After a whole year of waiting for a new addition to our Polar Nights brood, baby Jonty is finally here. Super cute and perfectly formed, he's the spitting image of proud parents Lara and Lars. Jonty is believed to be the smallest polar bear ever born, weighing in at an ickle 2.7 grams, but there is no stopping him from becoming the star of the "Jana Reinhardt Jewellery Minis".
Ross and I have been busy with our own offspring and creating new collections throughout this year and we completely forgot about all the requests we had last winter for a tiny polar bear. Having been reminded by a couple of customers during "Spirit of Christmas Fair" last month, we decided it's about time we created the wee fella. Unlike in the wild, where little bears take about eight months to grow in their mother's belly, we managed to turn him around in just a week.
I have been carving Jonty in wax last week, making sure he turns out every millimeter as handsome as his dad. He then went off to London to be cast in sterling silver and was cleaned up and polished by Hannah after arriving back in our Worthing studio yesterday.
So here he is in all his shiny glory, handmade from solid sterling silver and available to buy as silver or gold vermeil pendant necklace exclusively here, with free delivery and free gift wrapping. Guaranteed to bring a smile to anyone's face on Christmas Day!
