A hand-cast pewter heart features a thorny rose on the front and a fairy godmother's wise warning on the reverse: "Life is a rose, beware the thorns." A Czech glass blood drop dangles from the amulet. The pendant hangs from silver plated brass chain and closes with a blackened pewter toggle clasp elaborately decorated with Victorian accents.
Necklace is available in three lengths: 15" (38cm), 17" (43cm) or 19" (48cm). Shown here on my UK size 14 mannequin with a 14" or 35cm neck.
If you slept for 100 years, what would you dream? The passing of lives, the rise and fall of kingdoms, one perfect rose? The wonder of the Briar Rose tale is captured in this pewter necklace.
All my jewellery is made by hand by my partner Mike and myself in a converted 18th century naval school on the wild North coast of Scotland. All pieces come gift wrapped.
