Hand crafted jewellery inspired by the confident,, boastful beauty and ancient tales of this magnificent creature the Peacock. I am of Greek heritage and since childhood I have often wondered at the significance of the Peacock and why it is depicted so frequently in the Greek Orthodox church. My fascination and recent research has lead me to many stories across many beliefs and civilisations around the world. Naturally, I was drawn to that of the ancient Greeks belief that the body of this glorious bird was so beautiful it was immortal and would therefore never decay. The Peacock also symbolised renewal as it sheds its feathers annually and it is believed that Hera, the Queen of the Gods, placed the all-seeing eyes on the feathers to symbolise wisdom and knowledge.
Inspired by this, I hand crafted each peacock to represent his confidence and elegance, immortalising his beauty in sterling silver.
