Birds William Morris fabric covered button large pendant

Description

This William Morris & Co inspired pendant is made using a beautiful cotton fabric from Moda in collaboration with the Victoria and Albert Museum.

It features a repeating pattern of rabbits, birds and foliage on a sage green background of the print called Brother Rabbit. This William Morris pattern is also called Brer Rabbit and was first produced by Morris & Co. in 1882. The pattern was inspired and named after a character in Uncle Remus, His Song and Sayings by JC Harris (1881), which William Morris used to read to his daughters. The rabbits and in this case the birds that I’ve selected for this pendant were drawn by Morris’ close friend and colleague – Phillip Webb.

I've selected a lovely section of the cotton fabric featuring two birds - reminding me of a pair of song thrushes - standing in swirling trees and foliage - facing each other.

I 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 5 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 and his designs and when I saw this lovely muted green coloured fabric of this lovely rabbit and bird design, I just couldn't wait to create jewellery with this fabric using self-cover buttons!
