Cherisher and nurturer of all creatures great & small, I am Gentle Giant

Dragonflies are associated with rebirth, courage, strength, and happiness, they feature in the Chinese practices of Feng Shuai and are said to bring new insights and positive changes. We think they are just mesmerising and this beautiful 14 carat gold filled dragonfly charm is a stunning tribute to these fascinating flying friends!

Every unique piece in our Identity collection tells its very own story, celebrating our planet’s diversity, ecology & promoting our collective well being. To embody this concept,  each piece of Chickpiece jewellery features our signature diamond cut sterling silver ring that sparkles and shines, reflecting the brilliant light and energy of our planet and the connection between our six Identity values. 

Choose between our delicate 925 sterling silver cable chain or for that extra sparkle, why not choose our truly stunning 925 sterling silver rolo chain. We also offer a special child-length curb chain, simply select your chosen option in the drop down list.

All of our jewellery findings are 925 sterling silver. We will not compromise on quality when it comes to the materials that we use (unless of course it’s bad for our planet!). We use recycled silver wherever possible.

Your Identity Charm Necklace will be placed on beautiful wildflower seed paper for you to plant and watch the pretty flowers grow whilst helping the bumblebees! We include planting instructions and an introduction to your chosen charm with details of our company ethos. We can add a personalised note and even post to a nominated address if you are purchasing a piece as a gift, just select these options at checkout. Our biodegradable Jewellery wallet features our hand stamped trade mark logo on a stainless steel tag and we use paper padded envelopes with brown paper tape which are letter box size, all 100% recyclable. We walk to the post box and will not hesitate to hand courier locally to save on our carbon footprint !


Gentle Giants love…Dragonflies!

Dragonflies’ ancestors first appeared over 300 million years ago and it’s estimated that one (now extinct) species would have had a 30 inch wingspan.

Female dragonflies can lay up to 1,500 eggs at one time. They have a three stage life cycle – they start out as an egg, hatch into a nymph (larva), then moult and become an adult dragonfly. It will spend much of its life as a nymph (larva) in the water (between two months and five years depending on size!). When ready to turn into an adult, the nymph stops feeding and makes its way to the surface where it transforms into a majestic dancing dragonfly.

Male dragonflies are territorial and defend their territory aggressively. It’s estimated that there are around 3,000 living species of dragonflies worldwide. Dragonflies are carnivorous, and they eat a wide range of different insects, they can capture their prey in mid-air and love to eat mosquitoes -some species can eat up to and over 100 mosquitoes every day!

According to Harvard University, dragonflies are one of the most effective hunters among insects. It’s estimated that a dragonfly can catch up to 95% of the prey they attempt to capture. 

Dragonflies have amazing eyesight. Their two large compound eyes give them nearly 360 degree vision and it is estimated that they use around 80% of their brain to process visual information. They are expert fliers, with the ability to fly in every direction and even hover like a helicopter. Large species of dragonflies can fly at around 30 mph, they can even fly for miles over seas.

In Japan, the dragonfly is associated with the season of autumn, they are symbols of rebirth, courage, strength and happiness and are also symbols in the Chinese practices of Feng Shui, where placements of dragonfly statues and artwork in parts of a home or office are believed to bring new insights and positive changes.

Images of dragonflies are common in Art Nouveau and feature in many period designs, especially jewellery.
