Carnation William Morris fabric button pendant antique bronze chain

Carnation William Morris fabric button pendant antique bronze chain
Love this

Description

This William Morris & Co inspired pendant is made using a beautiful cotton fabric from Moda in collaboration with the Victoria and Albert Museum, recreating some of William Morris's patterns into fabrics.

This particular fabric is an Ebony background of the print called Leicester. Leicester was originally designed by J.H. Dearle in 1912 as a block printed wallpaper. Inspired by Morris' earlier design 'Bachelors Button' of 1892, Leicester is a lovely design that harks back to the medieval period and features a recurring theme of scrolling acanthus leaves with various flowers including what looks like Pinks or Dianthus or Carnation. This design was taken from an original pattern book held in the V & A archives.

I've selected a lovely section of a pink Carnation like flower, surrounded by swirling Acanthus leaves and other foliage, then created a 38mm diameter fabric covered flat backed button. It was then glued into an antique bronze plated round pendant blank.

The measurement of the pendant is 4 cm wide by 6 cm long, that includes the 1 cm for the bail. I've then added an 18 inch antique bronze plated chain, that is finished with a matching lobster clasp.

This lovely unique pendant will come to you safe and carefully packaged in a UK Made eco-friendly recycled kraft card jewellery box - perfect for gifting (or as a treat for yourself!)

Inspiration

I'm a huge fan of William Morris, The Pre-Raphelites and the Arts and Crafts Movement! When I saw this range of fabric at my local Quilting store - I just HAD to buy it! It have lovely rich hues and gorgeous metallic gold line art detailing!
