Theodora’s love of history crosses deep into her fascination with time. A favorite poem of her’s from the early 1600’s is the inspiration for this strikingly unique and majestic necklace. The Silver Swan is quite probably the most famous madrigal by Orlando Gibbons.
The silver Swan, who, living, had no Note,
when Death approached, unlocked her silent throat.
Leaning her breast upon the reedy shore,
thus sang her first and last, and sang no more:
“Farewell, all joys! O Death, come close mine eyes!
More Geese than Swans now live, more Fools than Wise.”
So here is her homage to this tale of time and death, The Silver Swan. Swinging from a 22 inch gold chain is a 2 inch gold, filigree medallion with a white watch face with gold hand pointing directly at 12:00. representing the middle of life for the Silver Swan. Our Silver Swan at her most brilliant, strong and beautiful moving through time gaining knowledge and wisdom until at last it sees how wisdom is so very different that just knowledge.
All gold is plate.
