Reconnect Charm Collection
Little fly, Thy summer’s play, My thoughtless hand, Has brushed away: so said William Blake - and we've created this fly charm for anyone who agrees! Our very own tribute to these highly underrated insects, our fly necklace charm features a lifesize fly, complete with delicate wings, those famous fly eyes (which each have around 3000 lenses - wow!), and fragile legs. When you look at flies from a different perspective they're actually rather beautiful.
But that's not the only reason Jana chose to include a piece of fly jewellery in her 'Reconnect' collection. You can wear all these designs alone or with the other charms on a bracelet or necklace. Each one is intended to reframe the way we see certain animals and plants, and encourages us to think more deeply about how we treat them. You might see them as a nuisance, but this fly pendant reminds us how important flies are: as pollinators, an essential part of our ecosystem, and to help get rid of things that have to decompose, like poo for example.
The number of insects has fallen by 60% in the last 20 years, due to insecticides, climate change, declining numbers of wildflowers on farms, and the destruction of their habitats. Jana created this insect necklace as a powerful reminder of how important these tiny creatures are. Next time there's a fly in your room, don't swat or ignore it, open the windows and let her back out again!
We all have a choice in the decisions we make and the impact we have on our world. This is why Jana Reinhardt decided to create jewellery solely from recycled metals. Tht means that you can pick a silver fly pendant, a gold fly necklace, or even a platinum piece of blue bottle jewelry and we guarantee we won't use any newly mined precious metals. And because we handmake every piece to order, we don't waste materials. Kinder to the planet and you get a truly one-of-a-kind, wonderfully made piece of jewellery.
