The Star-Crossed Lovers collection features dark romantic jewellery pieces called Romeo & Juliet, Heathcliff & Cathy and Abelard & Heloise.
I’ve taken inspiration from classic romantic love stories in literature and the middle ages to embody a collection that immediately provokes images of passion, dark romance and tragedy – a theme rich in imagery that plays out strikingly in the medium of jewellery.
Star-crossed lovers as a theme really inspired me and let me incorporate elements like interlocking rings that can be worn as pairs (so perfect for stacking) or on their own, plus feminine forms and more masculine armour-like details. The feminine and the masculine personalities of these characters are really at play in this collection and incorporated into every piece to reflect the theme.
This necklace is edgy yet subtle and has a dark romantic gothic feel to it to reflect Abelard’s love for Heloise– perfect for adding a bit of rock n roll to any look.
The pendant is made in 2 pieces, then soldered together to create the perfect finish.
Handmade by me in my North London studio and comes packaged in a Lee Renée branded box and wrapped in satin ribbon.

Necklace is made in silver with 18ct gold overlay detailing at the raised edge and on the spheres – and oxydised to bring out the detail.
