Fancy Hand - The Fan Brooch
Victorian hand jewellery has long held my fascination. Back in the day the objects held in these hands held special meanings, and sometimes signified the most secret of desires. The fan was a popular motif in British Victorian era jewellery due to a new trading relationship with Japan, which saw the rise of the Japonaisse style as design motives were appropriated from its rich history.
This fancy hand holds a fan comprising of mauve and lavender marble laser cut acrylic pieces. It harkens back to a bygone era but has a modern edge.
Caring for your acrylic jewellery
Acrylic is hard but can be brittle and scratch easily, so don't get too rowdy while wearing your jewellery and store it somewhere safe. Don't wear it in water and avoid spraying perfume or other liquids on it.
