Did you know that pigs are incredibly intelligent creatures? New-born piglets recognise their mothers’ voices and learn to listen to their names by the time they’re two weeks old. Mother pigs even ‘sing’ to their young while they are feeding.
With the aim of showing how amazing pigs are, the 100% recycled sterling silver piglet necklace on offer is not only a stunning piece of jewellery, it can also be a conversation starter. Wear it with pride and get people talking about intensive farming methods which so many animals suffer under, not to mention the effect that animal agriculture has on the planet.
Husband and wife Ross and Jana, both qualified goldsmiths with 50 years of combined experience in making jewellery are the team behind Jana Reinhardt Jewellery which was founded in 2006. The couple are as passionate about hand-making jewellery as they are about animal rights and sustainability.
Keen to use their jewellery-making skills to raise money and awareness for animal and environmental charities, over the last few years they have created several animal pieces to support PETA, OVAID, International Tree Foundation, Galgos Del Sol and others. Jana says, “Sustainability and respect for the world’s natural resources are incredibly important to Ross and me. We are always trying to make our business greener.”
