Inspired by Shakespeare's Lady Macbeth, this is large, weighty, striking and brooding, with a darkness suffused with flashes of light. Fluid and sinewy but with sensual robust grace; unsettling, bruised but refined. A real statement piece. Deeply deeply bruised, pitted and scuffed, then wrapped, twisted and overlapped into a flowing shell-like curve, with openings and flared edges. Heavily oxidised and then rubbed back in stages to bring the light. Brought to a high shine with extra lustre at the edges to accentuate the contrast. Hung on an 18 inch belcher chain. 40mm x 15mm and 1.5mm thick.
Hallmarked consisting of Maker's mark, Traditional Fineness mark, Millesimal Fineness mark, Assay Office mark and Date Letter mark.
'Lady M' pendant
Try to avoid wearing your jewellery when swimming, playing sport, gardening, doing DIY or in contact with chemicals, such as household cleaning agents, etc. If you are storing your jewellery for any length of time, wrap it in tissue/cloth and seal in an airtight bag to prevent oxidation. When cleaning jewellery, never use commercial chemical jewellery-cleaners, which invariably weaken the metal and can cause damage. Simply wash in mild soapy water, rinse and wipe clean. Then lightly polish with a soft cloth (a glasses-lense cloth is ideal).
