This new seasonal collection is an ode to expressions of endearment.
Romantic notions of the Victorian era, as seen in Valentines cards, and sentimental keepsakes, now find new form in decoupaged leather ensembles.
Symbols of friendship, peace, love, and romance abound. This necklace, the signature piece of the collection, depicts an envelope of sweet tidings being carried on the wings of a dove to its recipient’s eager hand, against a backdrop of a full red heart and a posy of roses.
Each element is made separately from fine coloured leathers, before being combined to form a whole. The dove, the letter of love, the hand, its lace cuff are all individually embossed with gold foil, the heart laser cut from deep red leather, and the roses and forget-me-nots cut from soft leather, stiffened and formed by hand.
The necklace comes with a baby blue silk ribbon and a sparkling golden chain - interchangeable with clasps.
Whether to celebrate romantic love, or loving friendship, may this piece bring joy to your heart!
Leather (cowhide & pigskin), pure silk ribbon, gold plated brass findings.
Collaged leather centrepiece 102 x 67mm. Ribbon & chain necklets 39cm, with approx total length 45cm.
