Smart Meters Competition


This is a sponsored post in association with Smart Energy GB

If you didn’t already know, every home in Great Britain between now and 2020 will be offered the opportunity to upgrade to gas and electricity smart meters. This means that over 53 million new meters will be installed in homes up and down the country, and your energy supplier will install the new technology at no extra cost.

Smart meters come with a portable in-home display that shows you in near real time how much energy you are using and the true cost in a language that we all understand, pounds and pence. The smart meter sends your meter readings to your supplier meaning no more estimated bills, you pay exactly for what you use.

When analogue energy meters are upgraded to smart meters, they are taken away and their parts recycled.  In the spirit of this, to mark the coming of the control that smart meters bring, in association with Smart Energy GB, three lovely bloggers have taken the inner workings of an old analogue electricity meter and working with North London boutique jeweller, Tomfoolery, have up-cycled the components into stylish pieces of jewellery.  The Meters Collection!


You can see the pieces created by Fresh & Fearless, Taislany Gomes and Tales of a Pale Face below.  And the good news is that each blogger has five pieces of their creation to give away to their readers.  All you have to do is pop over to their blog, tell them one of the benefits of smart meters (hint, look at the second paragraph) and you’ll be entered into the draw, and just in time for Christmas.


Here are the blogs in question and the lovely prizes you could win.  Follow the link to enter the giveaway on each blogger’s page:

Fresh & Fearless – who has designed this striking cuff:


Taislany Gomes – who designed this unique choker:


And finally, Tales of a Pale Face – who has designed this beautiful necklace:


Aren’t they all beautiful?

This one-off jewellery project has been done under safe and controlled conditions using decommissioned meters that have already been removed from homes.  This should not be replicated at home!

Good luck with the giveaway!
