For this necklace, we sculptured a pansy with a surface suitable for enamel. Each of the three flowers has a different blend of violets and purples, rendered in enamel almost like a miniature painting. The silver background artfully illuminates the translucent petals. Slender art deco links are set with tiny clear crystal, creating a delicate sparkling chain. An artful and fascinating necklace to love or to give to someone unforgettable. Hand made in our Los Angeles studios. Sweet Romance USA.
Shelley’s comments: The very word “pansy” is adapted from the French word ‘pensee’—to think or remember. The Victorians so loved pansies, they became the most popular flower grown from seeds. In jewelry, they appeared during the 1940s, as feminine, romantic style took over fashion, introduced by Dior.
