A jewellery designer has created a special necklace to raise cash for a hospital arts programme.

Natasha Lyons, of Sheffield-based Tarr and Fether, was inspired to create the piece after visiting Sheffield Children’s Hospital, where she heard about the hospital charity’s arts programme, Artfelt.

The programme helps young patients feel better by brightening the hospital walls with art work and engaging them in creative workshops.

Natasha said: “Artfelt is such a great cause with amazing artists supporting it. It was an honour to design a necklace for the project.”

The designer has created a necklace with an amethyst, available in either nine carat gold or silver, priced at £30 and £15.

Cat Powell, Artfelt manager, said: “We’re always grateful for the many creative ways in which people fundraise for Artfelt.

“After a visit to the hospital, Natasha was inspired to design a necklace that reflected the uniqueness of what we do.

“We think the result is beautiful and hope it will raise lots of money.”
