Guardian of our planet, conscious footprints in my wake, I am EARTH CHILD
As snowflakes gain momentum, more and more sparkling crystals join together, strengthening their structure as they evolve into incredible, sparkling phenomena with diamond purity. Our stunning sterling silver snowflake charm captures this essence, celebrating snowflakes and reminding us of our responsibility to protect our planet.
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 !
Earth Children love…Snowflakes!
Our magnificent ice caps are becoming covered in soot from human activity, heating up and melting. Sea levels rising, coastal villages being destroyed, drinking water reduced, nature and wildlife suffering and it’s only getting worse. Our snowflake charm serves as a reminder of just how delicate and intricate our ecosystem designs are and as the most intelligent species on earth we are waking up to the realisation that the power to protect or to destroy our world is in our hands.
A snowflake is a single ice crystal that has achieved a sufficient size, and may have amalgamated with others, then falls through the Earth’s atmosphere as snow.
Each flake nucleates around a dust particle in supersaturated air masses by attracting super-cooled cloud water droplets, which freeze and accrete in crystal form. Complex shapes emerge as the flake moves through differing temperature and humidity zones in the atmosphere, such that individual snowflakes differ in detail from one another, but may be categorised in eight broad classifications and at least 80 individual variants. Close to 80% of the world’s fresh water supply comes from snow and ice.
Snow is not actually white, it is clear, light reflections make it appear white. The world’s largest ever snowflake found to date was 38 centimetres wide and 20 centimetres thick! This snowflake occurred at Fort Keogh, Montana, USA on 28 January 1887.
