jewellery revisited

Those of you who follow this blog will find both of these pieces familiar. Toby has reworked them both for me.
Firstly the multi chain bracelet, which he has enlarged, and also added more poppers, curtain rings and beads. This piece is very much 'me', I love it's quirkyness!
Secondly, 'Pacman 'n pearls'. The Pacman you have seen before, it is made from a silver 3d piece from 1920, the year my father was born, set on some hand rolled silver. My Dad gave the 3d to Toby, so it is extra special and personal to our family. I asked Toby if I might have it, so he made it into a necklace for me, using a string of vintage pearls with a lovely little diamonte clasp, and adding special danglies and a safety chain too.
I am so lucky to have an 'inhouse jeweller' !!

Hi Penny,

Both pieces are fab, and very much 'you'. I can see why you'd love them, especially with all the memories attached to them. That's what jewellery should be about. It should be meaningful.

Take care, Sybille x

I always liked that bracelet - now it's even better! Glad the Pacman stayed at home, especially with it's memories.

You are terribly lucky! I have so many pieces that need to be turned into jewelry - in that mythical place where I have time and energy. I need a Toby!
