      I really liked the Blessed Damonzel´necklace. So cool to see that someone made a piece based on a poem they like.

    I love the jewellery, especially the second photo down, which reminds me of some of the jewellery from Germany in the interbellum period in the 1920’s and 30’s. My great aunt an English woman was married to a German Luftwaffe pilot before the WWI and she lived in Germany throughout. Owing to the reparations there was little money around and jewellers began to use scraps of material in glass brooches and similar. I used to love handling it as a small child. It was all thrown away, after she died, in about 1972 as the adults in my life deemed it to be worthless. The nearest I’ve seen to it since is the work of Ayla Bar
    Thank you for another interesting article.

      That’s an interesting story! I would have kept all the pieces of jewellery, worthless or valuable doesn’t matter, because I am a sentimental person.
