About This Project

Lava cameos with Whitby Jet are two of my favourite combinations for antique jewellery. I love the mystique of the lava cameo – hand carved in the 19th century from Italian lava and sourced during a Grand Tour. Whitby Jet was another substance popular with eh Victorians for jewellery making, mined at Whitby, on the north-east coast of England. The centrepiece was once a brooch, and with the pin removed, it transformed beautifully into a pendant. The necklace chain is made using lovely, lush Kasumi-like pearls and unusual autumnal shaded garnets. This necklace has SOLD.
