Horseshoe Candlestick (£30.00): If your mother loves to get cosy and take to the sofa after a busy day in the great outdoors, we’ll bet she loves to light candles too. The Horseshoe Candlestick is Crafted from a single used horseshoe forged with a steel bar to create a classical and elegant candlestick that will become pride of place.
Horseshoe Fruit Bowl: (£40.00): This piece is hand-forged from new horseshoes making it the perfect place to safely store all that healthy fruit that mums just love to try to persuade us to eat every time we visit their home.
