Choose between 4 different little hedgehog cufflinks, or get the set. Each cufflink is made entirely from sterling silver with the fronts handsawn from recycled eco sterling silver stock. Each hedgehog is approx 2cm wide and approx 3g.
There are 15 species of hedgehog across Europe, Africa and Asia, …they have also been introduced in New Zealand. Here in the UK we have the imaginatively named European Hedgehog. With a habitat stretching across most of Europe from Ireland to Russia, although avoiding the colder northern regions, European Hedgehogs are a gardeners best friend, feasting nightly on slugs and snails. I would love to have one move into my garden, but like many people I’ve only ever seen a live wild one once! Due to a combination of habitat loss, road accidents and poisons like slug pellets, the populations here in the UK at least are falling rapidly 🙁
Folk lore would have you believe that hedgehogs suckle the milk from cows at night, but they are in fact lactose intolerant so if you’re leaving out a treat, a non fish based cat food is best, alongside some water.
These cufflinks are my surprise animal cufflinks of January 2019 find out more here
Matching earrings are also available here
Please allow a week for dispatch, it may be quicker but as a new mother reopening a business in the middle of a pandemic I’m allowing some wiggle room just in case, they will be packaged ready for gifting to yourself or a friend in a jewellery box and dust jacket. If required I can send directly to a recipient other then yourself with or without a gift note, just let me know in a note at the checkout.
