English Folk-lore has many tales of Magpies acting as cheeky, thieving, feathered rascals who fly off with prized, sentimental, items of jewellery. By turning the bones of Magpies into jewellery my collections subvert these folk-lore’s by making the Magpies into the jewellery that they would make their loot!
My Rose Gold Vermeil Magpie Bones are cast from actual Magpie bones. I find Magpies endlessly fascinating. Magpies don’t live by the same Darwinian rules as other Corvids, they lead rich & complex lives. One of the most remarkable things that has been discovered about Magpies is that they are the only non-mammal that demonstrates mirror self-recognition! I marvel at their beauty and at their brains and this has inspired my collection.
This design is perfect for adding a cute & gothic edge to any outfit, whilst also being bold statement earrings that are very comfortable to wear continually. I have chosen the delicate, pretty, subtle tones of 22 carat rose gold for this collection to lend a femininity to what has traditionally been quite a masculine motif.
I believe that with truly great jewellery you are never underdressed for any moment in your life, no matter where you may find yourself.
These are pieces to wear and treasure every day, everywhere, over a lifetime, and are heirlooms of the future.
Each piece of Claire English Special Jewellery is lovingly handcrafted to order.
