This thimble was commissioned to mark one of those ‘special’ birthdays. Apart from being a keen sempstress, the recipient also loved gardening. Hence the initial ‘F’ is meant to look like a branch and the rear has representations of leaves.
The thimble is fabricated from sheet with both bright and satin textures. I was given a thimble that fits in order to get the size right – the tricky bit. It is, of course, hallmarked.
From the giver – ‘F++++++++ is delighted with it, so thanks again for your time and work.’
From the recipient – ‘ I’m emailing to say thank you for making my lovely thimble. I’m really pleased with the design and finish. I have been using it for sewing already and it fits very well and does everything a thimble should do! So thanks again’
