This gorgeous necklace features a pendant with the birds of the old willow pattern porcelain. It piece of vintage British porcelain is hand cut and set into a Sterling silver base. Each pendant is made from a different fragment so two birds are never exactly the same.
The tale of the willow pattern is based on an ancient love story. A peasant boy and princess were in love but the King would not let them marry. He built a large fence around the palace and arranged a suitable marriage with a Duke. Arriving by boat, the Duke found that the couple had already escaped over a bridge to an island where the Gods had taken pity on them and transformed them into immortal doves.
A truly symbolic piece!
