Claire Taylor - 'Insieme' Sterling Silver Pendant, Enamel

Gift wrapping:
Options available

This delightful Vitreous Enamel and Sterling Silver pendant features a contemporary take on the 'blue swallow'.


The swallow was a common symbol in Victorian era jewellery, representing safe return, love and faithfulness, as swallows always mate for life.


Renaissance era jewellery often had engravings of sayings or poetry. These pendants have a secret Italian word of love engraved in the riveted panel behind the swallow. There is also space on the panel for the owner or giver to add their own special message (the panel can be slid open so the word is visible).


Insieme = together.


Pendant is 24mm in diameter.

Sterling Silver 50cm round belcher chain.


Specialising in contemporary jewellery, Melbourne-based Claire Taylor is inspired by traveling, collecting and nature. Her designs often develop via experimentation with textures and she uses a variety of embossing techniques to capture the impressions of fragile materials in metal. Taylor’s body of work is incredibly varied, but delicate patterning and textural elements persist throughout. 


Taylor has been working as a jeweller since 2002, after finishing a Bachelor of Applied Art in Metal & Jewellery. She has travelled extensively in Europe and Asia, and worked with jewellers in India and Ireland. Taylor exhibits her handmade jewellery locally and internationally, most recently with a solo show in Barcelona. 


Her work is available in silver and gold. In addition to her core range Taylor does commission work, incorporating stones and other materials into unique pieces.
