Heart hand built in silver clay with hand made beads and freshwater pearls. The pure silver heart and bead have been oxidised to give an antique patina.
This is a completely unique and one off piece inspired by Tudor and Elizabethan jewellery found in old master paintings such as Holbein's portrait of Jane Seymour or 'The Rainbow Portrait' of Elizabeth I by Isaac Oliver.
Handmade silver beads six 10mm wide, three 5mm
Pearls 6mm wide
Heart 2.5cm long x 2.3cm wide
In an effort to respect and protect the environment I use silver clay a material which contains filaments of fine silver recycled from high tech industries mixed with a non toxic binder, my jewellery boxes and bags are made from recycled cardboard.
