Alluring Victorian

Artist Statement: Entirely handcrafted, This design features ’Proserpine’ by famed Pre-Raphaelite artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Goddess of the Underworld, she nibbles daintily on a pomegranate in contemplation of her immortal fate.

This stunning image has been transferred to clay, fired, then sealed using a 3-step process to retain its durability and sheen. Its natural sparkle is further enhanced by tiny metallic flecks embedded in the clay prior to firing. This adds an additional subtle shimmer to the finished piece. The miniature is then framed, painted, and antiqued. An intricate clay backing is painted, given a patina and then attached. I painstakingly create each clay pendant one at a time.

I have designed this piece using only the finest quality stones and materials in my creation. Proserpine is adorned in creamy pale pink Swarovski pearls and hand-crafted clay beads formed around vintage faceted glass stones. Below her swings a hand-formed clay drop embellished by vintage Swarovski crystal decor. Antiqued silver-tone metal is used throughout the piece.

Approx. Pendant Size: 1.5" x 4" (including drop).

I've created this 18" necklace to accommodate all neck sizes. Open the lobster clasp and connect it to any of the individual chain links for the perfect fit. No need to fret over details; I will contact you directly after purchase to discuss your desires and will attend to every question.
