This 2 sided mosaic of pink sapphire, gold and pearl, then faceted garnet with Greek silver coin and faceted garnet. The mosaic is set in a gold vintage watch from the 1840's bought in Bordeaux, France.

The first time I found this shop was in 2015... I wandered past the Museum of Design in Bourdeaux on a quest to find an antique store that might have some interesting elements to add to the jewels. I was enthralled with the pieces I found- I think I would have taken everything home had it fit in my luggage. And the owner, Madame, was so lovely with me and did her best to shuffle through my rusty French... I have gone back twice since. This is what the Wanderlust Collection is all about- designing from experiences that are packed with meaning.
