I discovered Olive & Pimento through a friend who had fallen in love with their wax seal necklaces - and it wasn't long before I had too. I'm a sentimental girl, and the sentiments behind these necklaces are very lovely. My personal favourite - the Bend, Don't Break necklace, is such a beautiful reminder that even in those darker moments, we have the strength to dig our roots into the ground and weather the storm. I would totally choose this Spirited Horse pendant for Eleanor, because, you know. She's my brumby. I love giving gifts like this, ones that will be treasured right through childhood and adult life. So lovely.
Olive & Pimento are a New Zealand business, based in Auckland. I love the way they describe themselves - "Olive & Pimento are merchants of unique treasures and a place where pretty things live." Having always been a treasure seeker myself (I used to walk the pavements with my eyes to the kerb, in case some stray treasure had been abandoned there - sometimes I lucked out and found a marble, or, on other days, a bottle cap), I totally dig that description, and heartily agree that the pretty things do indeed live there.
