Filippa’s Gift


Fillipa's Gift                 “As she drew it gently from its velvet-lined casket Filippa noticed the gleaming links; knowing that Sforza had made this especially for her caused a pang in her heart.  Sforza was a poet, an artist with a soaring soul that only Fillipa could possess. Sadly she had just learned that he had been captured by agents of the Borgia’s and was fearful of his safety. As she slipped it around her neck and fastened her cloak tightly there was a determined set to her chin. she would sell all the jewelry her family had given her to ransom her lover but she would not sell the necklace that he fashioned for her slender throat. In the dark of night she slipped away, mounted her bay mare and rode quickly through the mist; she would reach Milan in time if it took her last breath…”

If you long for a bit of fantasy in your life start with this delicate necklace-who know where is might lead?

Necklace is 23 inches long (can be adjusted) with filligree connector and hand crafted glass bead. Entire necklace has been distressed and patinaed, then sealed. It will be in my etsy store tomorrow.

As a child I loved fantasy play, reading about and creating a world that was eons away from the present. for a brief time as an adult I had to "grow up" and attend to duties as a wife and mother. Now the children are grown, the husband gone and it is time for me. I have once again entered that fantasy world to write and create for myself and others if they choose to partake of the fantasy.

  1. I love it!! What a great idea!! Beautiful pieces and a the story hooked me immediately! You go girl!!

  2. I love where the imagination can take you with just looking at some random object!

    • Thank you Lorna, but it was not a random object….I needed a “hook” to get my online sales going and decided that I could kill two birds with one page so to speak. My first love is making jewelry (then writing and painting) and n order to keep feeding my addiction I need to sell more. So…the story was born! I have always loved the short story format, but since I have so many pieces of jewelry I will need a longer style. I have started an outline and family history for Filippa! I have no idea where this is going, it seems she has taken the story over! Stay tuned!
