This piece contains a beautiful drawing by artist Lisa Stead, taken from a vintage fashion postcard, it sits in an ornate metal frame and is covered by a glass cabochon. It hangs from a black ribbon to create a striking piece and to match the colour of the artwork. The ribbon is in keeping with the paste-broach Victoriana style.
The inspiration for moving in this direction was partly influenced by the tradition of renaissance miniatures - exquisite tiny little portraits in frames. I wanted to combine this very old tradition with the black and white portraits of iconic film stars from the films I love so much.
Item comes gift wrapped in a silver bag.
