Mythical Heraldic gothic creatures and French Renaissance design are the subjects of this fabulous necklace. A lion head, flanked by Zephyr and Griffin alternate with Fleur de Lis. Each is embellished with settings which hold faceted old world crystal in a palette of deep blue, smoke and green. Each sculptural element is made in our studio and is mounted on individual links. The etched chain contours to your neckline and is joined by serpentine end motifs. Length: 20" plus a 5" extender. Width 1-1/4" Hand burnished bronze finish reveals the exquisite detail in our metalwork. Made in our Los Angeles studio.
Statement jewelry at its best, these enduring symbols of legend, inspiration and guidance connect past with present for this journey called life. The Lion head summons strength and protection. The Zephyr commands perseverance through the winds of change. The Griffin has the head of a horse, the wings of an eagle and tail of a dragon, signify intelligence, freedom and might. They were present in the adornments of one of the most powerful women in history--Elizabeth I. Once the adornments of royalty. Now they are yours.
