Style & Then Some

Stella Tennant and the Teapot Trust’s ultimate art cause

With our fingers firmly on the creative pulse here at Style & Then Some, it is never far from our minds that creativity is one of life’s most important emotional outlets.  We are taught from a very young age a variety of lessons through the art of drawing, painting, colouring in – even gluing ourselves to anyone and everything.  Yet many children who suffer from life-threatening illnesses are denied their fundamental right to creativity due to long stays in hospitals, and so forth.

So we are over the moon that the Teapot Trust, set up by John and Laura Young, who became aware how much art in hospitals meant to their daughter during her stays there, have enlisted the help of model extraordinaire Stella Tennant, to raise money for their cause.   Ms. Tennant, whose own children were at the school that John and Laura’s daughter attended, modelled this gorgeous pendant, designed by the Teapot Trust, commissioned by Lyon & Turnbull Auctioneers and made by Eric N Smith Jewellers Glasgow, will go on sale on November 30th.  The money raised will help the Teapot Trust provide art-as-therapy for children suffering from life-limiting illnesses at Edinburgh’s Royal Hospital for Sick Children and will be branching out to the RHSC in Glasgow and Yorkhill as well.

The image of Stella above was captured in Paris by Peter Lindbergh and may also be auctioned off in the near future.  So with such a beautiful cause behind it, and such a gorgeous, guilt-free necklace up for grabs, why not get bidding on the 30th?

The Tea Pot Trust Charity Auction will take place at Lyon & Turnbull, 33 Broughton Place, Edinburgh, EH1 3RR, on Wednesday 30 November 2011. See www.teapot-trust.org for more info.
