This is a dramatic theatrical piece. Thinking of both famous theatre and early film stars of yesteryear, Sarah Bernhardt comes to mind. Suitably worn either high on a collar under the chin or adorning the side pocket of a jacket, this is a stunning brooch which will certainly invoke conversation.
Only two Brooches of this same design have been created.
Version 1: Black Pearl (pictured above) SOLD
Version 2: White Pearl (SOLD)
This makes this piece two of a kind.
This is the Black Pearl Version which features a Full Moon carved from Black Mother of Pearl Shell. Across the shell moon fly's x3 Bats, crafted in Sterling Silver with Moonstones set into their bellies using 18ct yellow gold as the settings. The snake wraps itself around the base of the moon where a large 'Peacock Black' Pearl is suspended from it's jaws.
Superbly crafted from start to finish this is an exceptional Brooch for the jewellery connoisseur.
Like all SLJ items this piece was hand carved and finished by Steph Lusted's own hands in her central Wellington Workshop in New Zealand and is available to view in Store.
Includes a Steph Lusted Jewellery printed jewellery box
