Jessica discovered personal ephemera celebrating the 21st birthday party in 1941 of a lady called Gladys’ hidden away from harm in the pocket of a worn, leather vintage suitcase. Birthday cards, evocative photographs, letters, even her father’s birthday speech lay waiting patiently for Jessica to seek inspiration from and in turn reignite the living memory of Gladys.
JdL's Handcuff pieces represent Gladys coming of age and welcoming into adulthood.
Handcuff Wax Seal with Emeralds grain set within seal and suspended from a signature JdL side hammered Bangle. Emeralds grain set within seal.
I have adopted elements of acrostic jewellery within this collection in order to conceal hidden messages within the pieces. The stones within this collection therefore spell LOVE.
