Description

REGULAR PRICE $90 ON SALE FOR $50

A terret is one of the rings on the top of the saddle of a harness, through which the reins pass. Iron age terrets were often enamelled, and enamelling was quite often associated with horses - showing the significance of these animals in status, prestige and authority.

The period of Celtic art that covers roughly 300 BC to 400 AD is called "La Tene" because of an important archaeological find at La Tene in Switzerland. This was long before the advent of interlacing (knotwork) when many designs were very abstract.

A characteristic of this type of design is that the negative space is as important to the design as the positive space. The pieces in this series are virtual reproductions of Celtic enamelling from the time of the Iceni uprising led by Boudica against the Romans around 50 BC. The meaning is obscure, but some people see birds heads, elemental signs or vestiges of the human face.

I have taken liberties with the colour, as most enamels from this period were only opaque red

The technique of champleve is a five day process that includes painting and baking the resist, a 24 hour etching bath and meticulous layering of at least 5 coats of enamel. Each piece is fired from 5 to 7 times. Counter-enameling (enameling on the back of the piece) ensures strength and durability. It is 2" in diameter.

I have three in stock:
2 porcelain blue/green
1 red
Please specify the colour you want. Blue is out of stock - but could be ordered.

    I got the green one and it's very beautiful. It's a good sturdy chain, too.

    I ordered during the holiday season, which is always a busy time, and the seller was very communicative. She responded promptly to questions and kept me informed regarding shipping.

    The necklace itself is beautiful, truly a work of art. I'm very happy with my purchase!

Shipping policies

In Canada I use expedited shipping, which is guaranteed in three days across Canada.
Sadly I can't guarantee times for my American customers, as shipments might at any time be held by customs. International shipping is very expensive, slow and un-trackable methods can be used (your choice - just contact me) but you have to accept the liability. For the record I have never had a single package go astray.
