Winter is Coming…. Is inspired by Nonnus's poem about the Queen of Winter and the jewelry produced during the Hellenistic period in history, which covers the period of Mediterranean history between the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC and the emergence of the Roman Empire in 31 BC. Jewelry was considered a symbol of eternity, peace and victory as it circled around a head, neck, wrist or finger. The endless circle was customarily used by Emperors and Empresses' of this time to show strength and unity to their people.
A shaped, peyote stitch, torque-style cuff uses multiple armatures to hold the shape and create a domed curve to the cuff. The cuff ends with bezel-set pearl cabochons and a bit of shaping detail. The top of the cuff has a bezel-set CZ and two bezel set pearl cabochons, ending with peyote stitched oak leaves on each side of the pearl cabochons.
