‘Fellowship of the Yarn' Wooden Keyring (Charity appeal)
I designed this Keyrings as a Christmas gift for three fellow WitchCrafters - it features all our drakies and beasties together, specifically Protego Potatoes’ Bertie-tato, Mandragora’s Creations’ giant mink mandrake, Knotturn Alley gift’s original Niffler and my own Buttercup Pygmy Puff!
In a world of competition and comparison, it is easy to assume that such friendships could not exist - yet they do, because we all recognise that magical crochet unities us, and add the biggest champions for each others’ businesses! I therefore wanted to do something special to celebrate this, and that is how this keyring came to be.
Nor only that, as there are minimum order quantities and my magical manufacturer - Zap Creatives - always send along more than I ordered, it meant that I had a few left over! I’ve been thinking about what do to with them, as obviously they feature artwork inspired by these other three makers and it didn’t feel right to profit from it.
I therefore considered selling them go raise money for charity, and was just about to reach out to my “fellowship of the yarn” sisters when the tragic events of the last week unfolded. As with so many other people, I have felt quite helpless and been desperate for to do something - however small - go help. I realise that the sickles raised from such a small project won’t go a long way; however, as the last week has shown, small acts together can.
I have therefore decided to donate 100% of all revenue from these Keyrings to ‘Choose Love’, a charity that is helping displayed refugees. They are providing all forms of support fo people in Ukraine, from food and shelter, to physical and mental health. The sentiment behind this design was “fellowship” - uniting together - and showing that love will always triumph over fear.
- Each Keyring is 2" (76mm) tall and printed on 4mm thick birch wood.
- Wooden pins use 24 times less energy than enamel and the supplier is FSC-certified.
- Each keyring has a metal chain, ready to pop on your bag, purse, suitcase... or whatever your heart desires! The world is your SALAMANDER.
