" And wheresoever we went, like Juno's swans, Still we went coupled and inseparable "
This exquisite necklace features a sterling silver swan with 9ct gold feet that paddle too and fro. Part of a collection of jewellery inspired by a beautiful poetry book with embossed daisies on the cover and handcut pages that I discovered on my Grandma's book shelf- A Bird Lovers Anthology. Swans have left their image throughout history, from fossils in caves and the crusades of Richard I, to Arthurian Legend and Greek mythology. These graceful birds are recognisable by their thick white plumage, orange beak and their long S-shaped necks that when curved together form a perfect heart- they pair for life, it is no wonder that for many they are a symbol of love, loyalty and strength. During the pandemic though I found that I could relate to the swan in a different way; graceful and calm above water, my feet madly paddling below! This intricately handmade necklace tells a story making it the perfect gift for someone truly special.
Handcrafted in sterling silver with intricate attention to detail in our Northamptonshire workshop each swan is gently polished to catch the light, its 9ct gold feet rock backwards and forwards. Each necklace is assayed by the Goldsmiths Company in London. All our jewellery is cast using 100% recycled gold and silver.
