I am extremely pleased to be taking part in this new, innovative and ground breaking charity event in aid of Action for Children and Elephant family.The concept could not fail to capture everyone’s attention including mine. Not only is The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt aiming to raise up to £1 million for each charity, it is also looking to achieve a Guinness World Record for the biggest ever Easter hunt.
I have been designing and making fine jewellery in London for over 30 years now but the challenge of designing a two-and-a-half foot fibreglass egg was a first for me as you can imagine! I decided to adorn the egg with a motif which is the main element in my legacy collection. This collection was inspired when both my children joined my business and I wanted to mark this event with a classic and timeless design. I felt using this design which is so close to my heart had the perfect synergy with the charity.
I was touched and honoured when Coutts sponsored my egg and to know it is to be displayed outside Coutts on the strand. The eggs will be displayed for 40 days and nights before heading off for auction. Knowing so many people will see it is incredibly exciting and of course it will do a fantastic job of raising awareness for the cause.
The story has been featured in City Wealth magazine which is released on Thursday and you can also read more about it on the Coutts website under the press release section.
