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 definitely on the dark romantic side! Feminine yet edgy, a colourful large peacock pearl is suspended on an oxydised silver ‘raven’s wing’ pendant design – inspired by the wild nature in Wuthering Heights.
Handmade by me in my North London studio and comes packaged in a Lee Renée branded box and wrapped in satin ribbon.
Pendant measures approx 4cm wide and 2cm long. Pearl is approx 0.9cm in diameter. Chain is 18” long.
Large Peacock pearl. Pendant and chain are made of silver then oxydised to bring out the detailing.
