'At Mrs Lippencote's II' is the second piece in a series of work featuring Snowflake Obsidian gems. The pieces are inspired by Elizabeth Taylor's charming 1945 novel, 'At Mrs Lippencote's'. The novel brings to life the sensitive, witty, unconventional Julia, who is compelled to live among the yellowing photographs of Mrs Lippencote's house. The evocative descriptions of a bygone era, preserved in the everyday items of the household, detail the women's interwoven lives and their compelling characters. While each knock on the door presents the opportunity for a shared cup of tea, which flows like the detailed narrative.
This darling brooch well suits the cooler weather and could accompany scarf or shawl, coat or cardigan, while reading before the fire or walking through the park.
A one of a kind, handmade piece by Christina Lowry. The 'At Mrs Lippencote's II' brooch features a round, 24mm cabochon cut Snowflake Obsidian, set in solid Sterling Silver scalloped bezel and is stamped 925. The back plate is saw pierced by hand with a teapot silhouette. This piece will be posted packaged in a drawstring pouch and bubble wrapped for protection.
