In More Detail

 

The exotic beads used in this jewellery were specially handcrafted in a small artisan workshop in Delhi, India to designs drawn and coloured by Imogen Sheeran. The name Spice Route refers to the trade between historic civilizations in Asia, Northeast Africa and Europe on whose colours and patterns the decoration is based. Each limited edition porcelain bead has been hand painted with a bold abstract floral design and traditionally fired. I wanted to evoke Italian Renaissance tin-glazed Maiolica wear made popular in 16th century Italy and have used the traditional colours - blues, greens, yellows, oranges, white, black, brown, ruby red, pink, and reddish brown. The word maiolica is thought to have come from the medieval Italian word for Majorca, an island on the route for ships that brought Hispano-Moresque (Muslim Spanish) wares to Italy from Valencia in the 15th and 16th centuries. Limited edition only available from Imogen Sheeran.
