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.
Orunla is the Voodoo God of fate – he is said to give you the strength and wisdom to help find solutions to all life’s problems.
This cute 'spinner' necklace has a head side (Orunla) and a tails side (snake) so you can give it a flick and let fate decide the answer to your questions! It also gives you 2 necklaces for the price of one as you can wear it to show the snake side or the face side.
The face side is enamelled in black. Around the edges there is intricate voodoo symbols to give it some nice detailing. The whole piece is oxydised and rests on a fine 18 inch chain.
It comes with a small card explaining what your chosen Voodoo Spirit embodies (perfect for gift purchases)and are packaged in a Lee Renée branded box.
Everything is handmade by me in my North London studio.
Spinner pendant measures approx 1.7cm long and 3mm wide. Chain measure 18 inches long.
Oxydised silver and enamel.
