World Penguin Day-Wednesday 25th April 2018
Today we celebrate everyone’s favourite Aquatic flightless bird on World Penguin Day.
Uniquely adapted to their living environment with flippers instead of wings for swimming and the ability to ‘toboggan’ across ice in this way energy saving and gaining speed. The inspiration for one of the most reliable chocolate snacks around and their distinctive form lends itself to jewellery design like no other southerner.
So never has there been a better excuse to pick up a penguin (or you could even adopt one).
Keeping it simple. Origami style flapper from The Penguin Patrol.
Triton embodied in feathers atop his trusty seahorse steed in this lavish necklace from N2 Creative Jewellery.
Baby bling ring by And Mary.
Silly Big Penguin ring is a 3D rendering that comes in many colours, shades unrecognisable in any of the seventeen known species. The iconic combination of streamlined beak to flippers makes this Shapeways design a King.
This mighty gangster bird, Emperor Penguin Freddie with Polar Bear Claw Necklace by Felieke Van Der Leest, was easily the star of the Craft Council’s touring show ‘Here I am’ in 2017, showcasing jewellery as art since the 1970’s.
