Owen Jones Initial Pendant
Initial Letter Pendant, made from decorated and coloured aluminium. You can choose any letter from A-Z: a present for someone special, or yourself!
Unusual pendant with decorative illuminated letters, based on scrollwork from the Arts and Crafts era. Taken from the original Owen Jones "One Thousand and One Initial Letters" from 1864. This enormously influential design book formed a foundation from which most modern typefaces have grown. The illuminated letters elegantly express his philosophy that "every ornament, however distant, should be traced to its branch and root"
Very lightweight at just 2 grams, despite its size (2 cm pendant height), and fitted onto sterling silver curb chain. So comfortable to wear. The colour is sealed inside the surface by anodising, which makes it resistant to scratches, water, coffee, and even a squirt of bleach. The item comes beautifully packaged, ready for gifting. I craft all pieces by hand in my studio, being classically trained at Birmingham School of Jewellery.
