Wasn’t Sunday’s Supermoon, well, super?
Lighting up the skies above Britain and closer to the earth than it has been in over twenty years, the moon appeared 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than usual. Show-off.
If you missed it, fear not. The next Supermoon is due to make an appearance on 9th September. And in the meantime, we’ve picked some rather lovely lunar-inspired finds that aren’t at all out of this world – they’re all handmade by sellers based right here in the UK!
Don’t be phased by the Supermoon, just wear it instead. This beautiful necklace, handmade in Farnham, features the five phases of the moon, set in silver and encased in glass. Beautiful.
This tattoo design is so cool, we might even be tempted to forgo the transfer and get the real thing inked straight onto our back, perhaps in time for the next Supermoon sighting? Mum: Only kidding…
Not strictly a fashion find, but this little porcelain plate, hand illustrated in Southampton, is sure to jazz up any interior. OR you can use it to store all the delightful jewellery from the rest of this page, right? RIGHT.
We’re getting a little starry-eyed over this crescent moon galaxy necklace. Not only is it handmade in Leeds but the price is a down-to-earth (geddit?) £7.50.
We couldn’t resist including this amazing full moon cushion from Korea (yup, we cheated). IT GLOWS IN THE DARK. Makes the stickers we had on our ceiling as a kid look a little bit lame-o. Oh well.
