• This enchanting hallmarked (1903) sterling silver cherub was part of a cloak hook from the Edwardian age, when cloaks were worn and hooks were used to hold them onto the wearer. The hook measures 3cm across.
• But I cannot see this angel without thinking of the visionary poet, William Blake’s poem, which was written above a door in Christopher Wren’s St. James’s church on Piccadily, in London. Blake was baptised here, in 1757. The poems reads:
• “The Angel that presided ‘oer my birth,
• Said, “Little Creature, formed of Joy ad Mirth,
• Go, love without the help of any Thing on Earth”.
• This dear silver angel pendant is flanked by four hammered sterling silver flat beads(23mm). These are in fact flat pebbles covered (not plated) in silver.
• The silver is complimented by the brilliant blue, flat but individually shaped beads (roughly 30mm by 25mm).
• At the centre, there are two antique Chinese silver and blue enamel beads (15mm).
• A sterling silver, handmade toggle clasp, has been used because toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.
• The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with its own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.
• The necklaces measures 44cm (17.5”) long with a 3cm (1.25”) pendant drop.
