Flower Frame Maxi Necklaces: Lord Mayors Gift to Kelly Gallagher and Charlotte Evans
In 2014 I had the pleasure of meeting the beautiful and talented Bangor skier, Kelly Gallagher and her equally beautiful and talented guide, Charlotte Evans, who won Britain’s first ever Winter Paralympic gold at the Sochi Paralympics.
I was commissioned by the then Lord Mayor of North Down, Andrew Muir, to make a pendant for each of them to be presented by the local council as a gift from Kelly’s home town, to honour their great achievement.
The pieces were bespoke items from my Flower Frame range and featured 5 increasing circles of silver with a gold inner circle to represent their gold medals. Inside each frame hangs a whitened silver flower to represent ice and each flower was set with the girls birthstones – blue sapphire for Kelly and Aquamarine for Charlotte. To compliment the stones, Kelly’s necklace was strung on black pearls and Charlottes on grey pearls.
Two truly unique, inspiring and talented women.
