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 Sterling Silver 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.
Coming very soon, in the meanwhile please message me to buy these designs in a natural Sterling Silver finish
