The Lily Blanche peapod collection is inspired by memories of shelling peas from the garden with my grandmother. We children would each have a colander full of bright green pods and a bowl in which to deposit the little emerald spheres. It was always so satisfying to pop the pods and we had a competition to see how many and how big the peas inside were. They tasted so fresh and sweet and for me they are a real taste of summer.
There is something so aesthetically pleasing about the humble peapod. It is such an elegant shape and it struck us that it was a perfect design for a Lily Blanche pendant. We wanted a 3D effect with movement and energy and so we’ve used the pearls to create ripples in the sterling silver pod with a final pearl “pea” escaping from the end of the pendant.
Teamed with the little pod earrings, which complement the pendant but are not too matchy-matchy, the Lily Blanche Peapod collection makes a perfect set. It’s a great gift for anyone who exudes understated elegance and perfect for green-fingered gardeners.
We hope you enjoy this little video.
