- Product Details
Made from two metal detecting finds and augmented with gold weeds and diamond stones, this pair are the perfect amalgam of old and new. 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.
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.
