Swallow Song Cuff

A golden enamelled bird alights upon a thin golden brass cuff. Fully adjustable.

During the Old Kingdom of Egypt, swallows were associated with stars and therefore the souls of the dead. The Book of the Dead specifically instructs the deceased on how to transform into a swallow. In Spell 1216 of the Pyramid Texts, the pharaoh describes how he has "gone to the great island in the midst of the Field of Offerings on which the swallow gods alight; the swallows are the imperishable stars." The imperishable stars were those near the North Star that never seemed to rise or set, and therefore were "constant".

Surrender the Self to The Lovers Tryst

Vintage Bracelet | Lovers Jewellery | Gold and Black Design | Artisan

Lovers Tryst Bracelet: Featuring an exotic blend of blackened ornate brass disc with couples locked into a heart shaped embrace.

Behind sealed lips , we protect one of the most personal spaces of the body, we part our lips to draw in the breath of inspiration or to speak intimate feelings into the beloved's ear, finally surrendering the private self in the loving convergence of one's own lips with the lips of another. "Mercy and truth are met together: righteousness and peace have kissed each other." Psalm 85:10

A Little Coppery Bow to Lighten your Senses

Bow Bracelet | Vintage Bohemian Luxe Jewellery | artisan handmadeBow Cuff | Vintage Bohemian Jewellery | Artisan Handmade

A stunning 1940’s Copper Bow with vintage Swarovski jewelled centre is perched upon an adjustable brass cuff.

Ribbons and bows are among the oldest decorative adorning materials known. Medieval and Renaissance patrons bought ribbons woven with gold and silver thread and made from silk and other rare fabrics from the Orient. Ribbons were so identified with luxury that, during the sixteenth century, the English Parliament tried to make the wearing of ribbons a right of only the nobility.

 

Abundance, Joy, Music, Dance, Cosmetics and Self - Beautification

Vintage Brass Cuff | Statement Jewellery | Bohemian Luxe Artisan Handmade

Vintage bracelet | Bohemian Designer Statement Jewellery | upcycled

Golden Mirror Cuff : A vintage lattice mirrored jewel from the 70's is mounted on vintage filigree ornate frames and welded to an adjustable brass cuff.

Mirrors were cult objects used in the worship of Hathor, Goddess of abundance, joy, music, dance, cosmetics and self-beautification, which brought one into harmony with the divine.

Mirrors have always existed. Before the use of metal, they were the reflections on the waters collected in the earth’s indentations. Early peoples believed that in such reflections the soul element could be perceived.

Our English word “mirror” comes from the Latin mirari: to wonder or marvel at.

Boho luxe Jewellery - Handmade artisan - Vintage - Eco-Chic- Cuff with cross
Who wouldn't want a Latin Lover? We are talking beautiful bracelet, not tall, dark and handsome! Our Latin Lover Bracelet is made from a beautiful deco enamelled dragonfly shield with a cross shaped cultured freshwater Pearl placed on top. Nestled on either side are a beautiful engraved butterfly and a coquettish 1950's bow.
Pearls are mythically guarded in their deep sea abodes by mermaids, water nymphs and snake genuii. Strands of pearls, threaded orbs of light, adorn the sensual bodies of deities: "On me all this universe is strung, as heaps of pearls on a string " says the god krishna. Chinese celestial dragons retrieve the pearl of wisdom out of the mists of chaos, and are themselves the form of a pearl's effulgence.

White Necklace |  Artisan Jewellery | Vintage Repurposed | I Made Your Jewelery

Sweet vintage white Lucite Hearts wrapped with Silver and hung with diamante ball and silver chain. Model Robyn Lawley mixes her darker side with the white of the cosmos.

The milky , maternal ocean of Hindu myth is the source of all the fundaments of the cosmos. From its waters emerge saps and elixirs, the white cow of all desires, and the moon-white elephant "Airavata" emblem of the Vishnu chakra, the throat or "void" in which all elements intermingle.
