Folk-lore has many tales of Magpies acting as cheeky, thieving, feathered rascals who fly off with prized items of jewellery. This very special necklace subverts these folk-lore tales by making a Magpie’s foot and bones into the jewellery that any Magpie would surely make their loot!

In Ancient Greece pearls were used for romantic customs and ceremonies since pearls were regarded as symbols of love and devotion and connected to the Goddess Venus. 

The word baroque is a Portuguese term for a pearl with an irregular shape - (barocco). It has been in use widely meaning unique irregular pearls since it was used in French to describe pearls in a 1531 inventory of Charles V's treasures.
