HornyThings was born in 2010 by its creator, Rachel Whittingham. With a desire to find unique pieces for her own home, the collection started with the skulls of dainty roe deer and majestic stags – the juxtaposition of the natural bone skull with Swarovski crystals made striking yet feminine additions to the room.

The use of gold and silver leaf and bright fluorescent paints with multiple layers of coloured Swarovski crystals meant many more possibilities. The pieces are extremely unusual and detail is meticulously applied. The colours and finishes of the skulls and horns are inspired by the origins of the animals, but can also be adapted to fit with any colour scheme within the home, creating a true one-off.

Belinda, founder and designer of Wild Acre, is passionate about creating handmade, contemporary jewellery, inspired by nature – closely observing botanic material from her garden and the riverbanks, wetlands, woods and fields that surround her home. The curl of a leaf, curious shapes of seed-heads, subtle patterns and textures of bark are all exquisite things that catch her eye and find their way into her pieces.

Belinda strives to make her studio practice as sustainable as possible, using natural alternatives in her designs instead of traditionally used chemicals, and offering sustainable 100% recycled gold and silver and fairtrade gemstones to her customers.
