Looking for a Christmas gift for the art-loving lady in your life? The Art Fund has a range of perfect presents for women who love art, from handcrafted bangles to beautiful porcelain vases. Best of all, proceeds from anything sold at the Art Fund shop go towards buying great art for British museums and galleries.
1. Fern earrings
These silver earrings are inspired by the imperfect symmetry commonly found in nature, a key influence on silversmith Rauni Higson. Their design is inspired by the shape of the hart's-tongue fern.
2. Bone china mugs
These Beatrice-style bone china mugs feature two ArtFunded works: Women on the Ryõgoku Bridge by Kitagaqa Utamaro, and the Dutch School designed Tile Panel with Flowers and Birds.
3. Reversible tote bag
Decorated with two contrasting Art Funded prints, this cotton tote bag can be switched to suit your mood. Choose between Angeli Ministrantes by Morris & Co, or turn it inside out to show off Tile Panel with Flowers and Birds.
4. Porcelain vase
The handmade design of this beautiful porcelain vase is taken from antique lace. The piece is inspired by designer Stahelin Edmondson's rich family history in European fashion, fabric and textiles.
5. Sweet pea bangle
Inspired by the spectacular mountain landscape of North Wales, Rauni Higson creates pieces using a process that combines fold forming with traditional metalwork techniques. This sterling silver bangle is an exquisit example of her work.
