Jabberwocky Necklace

I've just sent some exciting pieces of jewellery down to Artifex Gallery in Sutton Coldfield in the West Midlands. It's a mixture of some older Jabberwocky pieces and Treasure Rings with a new Jabberwocky Necklace and collection of necklaces, bracelets and cufflinks inspired by my imaginings of pirates and shipwrecks.




Here's some close ups of the Jabberwocky Necklace. It is the first stanza of 'The Jabberwocky' by Lewis Carroll that really inspires me, along with the description given of the three creatures mentioned by Humpty Dumpty in 'Through the Looking Glass'. This first stanza is also published alone in 'Mischmasch' under the title 'Stanza of Angelo-Saxon Poetry' with slightly different translations of the words. I use both the descriptions to help visualise these words in the form of jewellery.

I like the necklace, bit chunkier than the one I bought for Genna.
