Boadicea’s Shield Brick Stitch Pendant

Boadicea’s Shield Brick Stitch Pendant and Earrings

I’m completely in love with a book I found in my local library.  7000 Years of Jewelry: An International History and Illustrated Survey from the Collections of the British Museum is an incredible look at the wide range of jewelry housed in the British Museum. It’s a great resource for jewelry designers because of the range of eras and cultures it covers.

The above set was inspired by the Celtic, Germanic and late Roman jewelry in the book. I love the use of circular motifs, gold and garnet inlays. I was inspired to work circular square stitch around an amethyst bead using gold seed beads and red faceted Czech beads. I think the regality and strength of this style is fit for a warrior queen like Boadicea.

      Denise, thanks for the feedback, I had been considering making a PDF of this design. Since you’re interested, I’ll put it high on my to-do list. It could take a while, but I can email you when it’s up.
