Her Regard | Pink Tourmaline Edition
Her Regard | 18 Carat Gold & Pink Tourmaline Edition
Gold is so very captivating, so very seductive...
Her Regard is a fine art jewel inspired by my favourite novel, The Stress Of Her Regard by internationally acclaimed fantasy writer Tim Powers.
The story re-imagines the lives of our some of our most notable poets Shelly and Lord Byron. Their incredible work influenced by an otherworldly being, part muse, part incubus - it is 'her regard' or her focused attention which is responsible for the exceptional quality of their art.
This is a necklace I want to wear myself, to express power and, dare I say it, ardour. The swirls radiating from the gemstones evoke the idea of energy waves, thought patterns and emotions.
Each of the fifteen step cut tourmaline are tilted forty-five degrees, we see them as inverse pyramids, their power harnessed in the 18 carat gold settings.
The textured links are a delight to caress, even the clasp is sculpted from solid gold and can be completely removed from the necklace. In this way it is possible to shorten the chain on both sides equally and allow the chain to dangle down the back of the neck symmetrically.
There are only five Her Regard necklaces, each one in a unique combination of materials. no more will be made. The entire jewel is made in the United Kingdom, and presented in its own handcrafted presentation case.
