"Last night I dreamt I went back to Manderley...."
Showcasing Nathalie's signature carved lacework at it's most intricate the Manderley collection is a stunning body of work. Inspired by the opening line of Daphne du Maurier's famous novel ‘Rebecca' this collection harks back to the haunting tale of lies, deception and secrets hidden beneath the water's edge.
With each piece hinged at various points movement is a key aspect of the collection, allowing the jewellery to move in harmony with the body. Broken into three sections: Linear, Cup, and Diamond, Manderley provides beautifully delicate pieces in sterling silver, 18ct Vermeil and faceted gems, (rubies/emerald/topaz/aquamarines).
Kensington Gardens is an almost whimsical collection, combining Nathalie's signature carved detail with her love of storytelling. Inspired by the gnarled tree trunk in Kensington Gardens with it's little figures from famous childrens tales carved into the crevasses, each piece depicts a scene or moment.
From lovers on an overgrown branch to a penny farthing seemingly being ridden out of a brooch this collection evokes an feeling of old fashion charm. Each made from silver with 18ct Vermeil highlights with gems, (rubies, topaz, citrine).
