Seven for a Secret Magpie Locket Necklace – POA
This isn’t just a necklace, this is Seven for a Secret, a precious statement art piece with multiple jewels intended to be worn, cherished and admired… It is the initial centre piece creation that inspired the entirety of Julia’s folkloric designer collections and the birth piece of the Two for Joy Collection, now known as Elegance, IMPACT and WILD.
This necklace tells a story, it is narrative within jewellery and it holds secrets within… The large deep and sumptuous smoky quartz in the heart of the nest is guarded by seven magpies. Some perched, others swooping in to deliver treasures, to grasp at branches and to open the locket hidden behind the checkerboard cut gemstone.
Open the locket to reveal your secret, never told!
Each magpie, hand cut from recycled sterling silver exhibits subtle contrasting areas of satin relief and high polish to demonstrate the colour of their plumage. The organic branches that weave throughout the design are finished with a 22ct yellow gold vermeil, designed to add a rich golden contrast and tone effortlessly with the gemstone hues.
Cleverly constructed from torque style links, the whole necklace has the ability to move with you. The keys and quartz drusies dangle freely, as does the beautiful faceted golden rutile quartz drop with its nest like inclusions, adding a glittering visage. The decorative fastening is well considered, adding a little extra intrigue with a hand engraved scroll and trinket style twinkling drops of key and quartz briolette.
This playful art piece is the heart of all Julia Thompson Jewellery Collections… Go all out and complete this incredible look with the pair of Fairtrade Gold Smoky Quartz Cushion Drops unleashing the Wild Goddess within!
