Yes, my new range of Victorian-inspired jewelry is finally photographed, edited, written about and listed in my handmade jewelry shop.
This cameo pendant is probably my personal favourite from the new range. I think it captures the right combination of traditional and contemporary design that I was looking for in this series of jewellery pieces.
The pendant is made entirely from sterling silver. Both the entirely blackened background and the cameo profile have been etched with a beautiful damask-style pattern. The pendant is suspended from a sterling silver chain.
Here are the cameo earrings to match the pendant above. The earring panels swing freely from handmade ear wires.
This detailed metalwork pattern has been intricately sawn out of sterling silver to form these Victorian cut out earrings, which also feature handmade sterling silver ear wires. The earring panels are domed inwards which gives off some eye-catching reflections as they move.
Another personal favourite is this Victorian cut out pendant to match the above earrings. The pendant is suspended from black natural silk thread and has handmade sterling silver clasp findings.
This Victorian leaves and flowers pendant is part of a series within this range of etched pendants with 18ct gold highlights in the form of stylised leaves and decorative elements. I’ll feature some more of these pieces in my blog a bit later, but here’s one to take a peek at for now!
The pendant has been etched with a Victorian era engraving of a dense illustration with leaves and flowers. The recessed areas of the etching have been given a blackened but polished finish. The pendant is domed inwards and features an 18ct (or 18kt if you’re an American!) gold leaf design. It is suspended on a delicate sterling silver chain with handmade clasp findings.
This picture frame pendant has been inspired by a very ornamental frame. The design has been intricately sawn out of sterling silver and the centre of the frame has been left empty so that the wearer’s clothing or skin will show through.
The pendant is suspended from a sterling silver chain which has been given a blackened but shiny finish and has handmade sterling silver clasp findings.
Another picture frame pendant inspired by an ornamental frame, but this time in an oval shape and suspended from a black natural silk thread necklace, also with handmade clasp findings.
I’ll blog about more new Victorian-inspired designs soon, but for now have a look in my jewelry shop for the rest of the range.
