Master of my wellness, body, mind and soul, I am WELL BEING
It’s good to talk and all over the world having a chat over a nice cup of tea will do wonders for the soul. Next to water, tea is the most widely consumed drink on the planet. From green tea to a good old British cuppa, our gorgeous little sterling silver cup and saucer charm is a reminder to have a cup of tea with a friend or three. After all, problem shared is a problem halved.
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 !
Well Beings love…Talking!
Sometimes in our lives, no matter what we do, we may experience mental health issues, especially in this age of over saturation, bombardment of information and the many challenges that we face.
Talking plays a massive role in helping with mental health issues but for many years, talking about mental health has been feared to be perceived as weak or failing. The good old British stiff upper lip needs to be a thing of the past and we are so pleased to see campaigns like the Heads together campaign set up by Prince Harry and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with Mind UK and whole host of mental health charities supporting innovative projects to tackle the challenges we can all face in talking about our mental health.
A bit about Tea!
Since the 18th century, the United Kingdom has been one of the world’s largest tea consumers. Originally an upper-class drink in Europe, tea gradually spread through all classes, eventually becoming a common drink. It is still considered an important part of the British identity and is a prominent feature of British culture and society.
In both the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland, tea-drinking blends and preferences vary. Although typically served with milk, it is also common to drink certain varieties black or with lemon. Sugar is a popular addition to any variety. Everyday tea, such as English breakfast tea, served in a mug with milk and sugar is a popular combination
The rise in popularity of tea between the 17th and 19th centuries had major social, political, and economic implications for the Kingdom of Great Britain. Tea defined respectability and domestic rituals, supported the rise of the British Empire, and contributed to the rise of the Industrial Revolution by supplying both the capital for factories and calories for labourers. It also demonstrated the power of globalisation and its ability to transform a country and reshape its society.
These days, as we are learning more and more about sustainability and health, we avoid chemically bleached tea bags and go for biodegradable or better yet, beautiful tea leaves and a traditional strainer, why not have some fun reading your tea leaves!
We try and get a few cups of green tea in per day too as this has been proven to do absolute wonders for your health, see (nutritionfacts.org)
