a Grand Floral Heraldic Emblem of Tudor England
Hand cut Stained Glass in textured waves of deep red, set in a highly detailed double flower style clay frame. One of my most complex designs to create, but a favorite! (This one is even more elaborate, with hand-etched rays emanating from each petal.)
Hand painted with an Italian rust red based, antiqued gold & antiqued gold accented white finish, this pendant is @ 1 1/2 inches at widest, just under @ 2 inches long including complimenting bead drop.
Necklace is adorned with antiqued filigree, tiny faceted glass and bright red Swarovski beads measuring @ 17 inches long. (can be adjusted upon request when purchased ~ extender chain is added at no charge, but beadwork may be additional)
Parrish Relics are one of a kind and handmade in my one-woman (& two helpful cats) jewelry studio at Frog Hollow
. Time and care is spent collecting tiny shards of jewel toned stained glass that I find inspiring and captivating ~
Clay frames are formed around them to pay tribute to the beautiful colors and textures, the history that Stained Glass in Architecture brings to mind. Alchemically hand painted to match the metal components in the chains and findings, they become unique adornments that start conversations and are joyful to wear.
All orders are sent beautifully gift packaged in stamped recycled pillow boxes or organza bags, along with a care sheet and my favorite mossy tissue paper.
