Our new Sixpence garter

We all know the traditional wedding rhyme:

Something old,
something new,
something borrowed,
something blue,
and a sixpence in her shoe.

The sixpence which is a British silver coin is said to symbolise prosperity for the future marriage. 

We love a bit of tradition here so we thought it would be a lovely charm to add to our collection! Our new Sixpence garter is made from the same beautiful Nottingham lace as many of our other garters and has a silver sixpence charm attached below a beautiful pale blue satin bow and is finished with a single pearl!

I currently live in the beautiful city of Bath with my lovely boyfriend and even more lovely cat, Mr Cheeks. I’m part of the making team here at Britten and when I’m not making beautiful things at work I’m probably making beautiful things at home or on the hunt for the best fish and chips in the land!
