Conservation projects

The reintroduction of both black and white rhinos in their original ecosystems in Zimbabwe and the rescue and rehabilitation of orphaned or injured elephants as well as primates in Zambia are projects that are close to my heart and are being actively promoted in different ways.

The Baby Elephant Charm

Straight out of the African bush, our endearing Baby Elephant Silver Charm & Pendant was conceived to hang suspended from a necklace or hoop earrings, as a reminder of how precious and precarious is the most iconic mammal on Earth.

The piece has been designed in celebration and support of Game Rangers International's elephant rescue and rehabilitation project in Zambia, and is available in three variants: black, blue or brown eyes and a matching trunk-tip diamond.

The Wild Charm
