No I haven't found it, but maybe the next best thing.
Thanks to all the Kondo-ing
I was going through my box of boxes and found a jewellery box
with the name Kate Higham on it.
I hadn't been able to remember the name of the maker
it was such a long time ago,
but it was worth a punt.
The internet came up with her website
and as she was Devon-based it seemed quite possible
that it was one of her pieces.
We spoke today and she is still in business
and will send me some pictures of current work.
She still uses gem stones and silver
so I'm hopeful that I can have a replacement
in time for my next birthday.
This should guarantee that the old one turns up.
