  • Product Details

    Romilly is unsure what the original metal plate would have been used for, yet it reminds her of fashions worn during the Hapsburg era in Vienna and Budapest. Mended with oxidised silver wire, this piece also incorporates two antique garnets set in 18 carat gold. Newfoundland is a collection about collections – a realisation that makes one rethink the title, breaking it up into syllables, separating the words: new found land. Anglo-Saxon finger rings, Mediaeval turret brooches, thimbles, shoe buckles, belt buckles, knife handles, nails, pins and spoons – have been made precious, be-jewelled with diamonds and seed pearls, embellished with gold, silver and coral and given new stories, made wearable.

    About Romilly Saumarez Smith

    Romilly Saumarez Smith began buying metal detecting finds from various sources about five years ago. These extraordinary remnants, buried and forgotten since Roman and mediaeval times, become part of the world again as jewellery, boxes and bespoke objects.
