Fran Massey set up Tenacious Bloom in 2013 and her quirky designs have been making a real name for themselves. Every piece of Tenacious Bloom jewellery is designed and hand crafted at Fran’s home studio in Stone. And for Valentine’s Day, it just had to be the heart as the main source of inspiration.

Tenacious Bloom’s porcelain heart brooches are perfect for Valentine’s Day, although they can declare your love of pretty much anything to the world 365 days a year, from GEEK to CAKE and everything in between! They’re left unglazed, with a wonderful tactile texture, and if you have a word you would just love to see on the brooch, then Fran can customise it for you too.

Meanwhile, the “Sweet Nothings” porcelain heart stud earrings come in two sizes and a range of colours, including matt unglazed porcelain white. They are lightweight but strong, effortless to wear and perfect for punctuating any outfit and look super cute with updos or short hairstyles. Their design was inspired by 1960s fashion and a desire to make the very most of every bit of porcelain Fran uses.

Fran says: “Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, traditionally a day for giving and receiving tokens of love. Hearts are the universal symbol of love, so I really wanted to celebrate them! Not only do they represent romantic love but also self love, compassion, warmth and joy. Our heart jewellery is curvy, feminine and bold, yet simple and elegant all at once! In short, hearts are perfect however you wear them.

If you want to get your hands on some heart jewellery in time for Valentine’s Day, make sure you order it at the Tenacious Bloom Etsy shop before 11th February. Or, if you’re going to struggle with that, you can collect from Fran’s home studio.
