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.
These pearl earrings are anything but tame yet great for everyday styling. Edgy yet feminine, large peacock pearls sit in a silver ‘claw’ design, which loops over the pearl and back through your ear with a fine spike at the end.
Handmade by me in my North London studio and comes packaged in a Lee Renée branded box and wrapped in satin ribbon.
Pearls measure approx 0.9cm in diameter. Earrings measure approx 2.5cm long.
Earrings are made in silver with large peacock-coloured pearls.
