Description

These 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 in cream, on a sage green background of the print called Brother Rabbit.

There's two options for the pendants: I've selected lovely sections of the cotton fabric featuring either two birds - reminding me of a pair of song thrushes - standing in swirling trees and foliage - facing each other or a pair of rabbits, again surrounded by swirling foliage.

I then created 38mm diameter fabric covered flat backed buttons. Each 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 (45 cm) antique bronze plated flat oval trace chain, the links of the chain measure 4.5 x 3 mm and there’s a 12mm lobster clasp at one end.
The chain and pendant blank are both nickel and lead free.

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 to that Pre-Raphelite or Arts & Crafts style fan or a lover of tulips or flowers (or as a treat for yourself!).

As it’s made of cotton, this is also ideal as a small token for a 2nd wedding anniversary gift!

Inspiration

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 birds that I’ve selected for these pendants were drawn by Morris’ close friend and colleague – Phillip Webb.
