I loved the idea of Voodoo as a theme for a collection - I'm fascinated by the magic, mystery and darkness behind it and the exotic imagery it conjures up. I used ancient Tribal Masks to depict 5 of the most powerful Voodoo Spirits - so as well as it being bold, resplendent jewellery with attitude, each Deity is said to bring the wearer unique powers and gifts.
Legba is one of the most important Voodoo Gods as he is Guardian of the gates – the intermediary between Earth and the Spirit world. Wear him for luck, he is said to help you overcome obstacles and achieve your goals.
Legba wears a Skull crown of souls he has carried safely to the afterlife and has garnet gems for his mesmerising eyes.
Great for every day styling through day to night, very comfortable to wear and perfect accessory for the AW 12 Neo Gothic trend that's hitting fashion this autumn. The ring is handmade by me in my London Studio.
It comes with a small 'tarot-like' card explaining what your chosen Voodoo Spirit embodies (perfect for gift purchases) and is packaged in a Lee Renée branded box.
Measures approx 2.9cm long and 2.3cm wide.
The ring is made on a silver base with 18ct gold vermeil, and set with 2 garnets– believed to aid creativity and enhance passion.
