1870s Large Victorian Garnet Tassel Pendant, 14K Gold on Long 1960s 14K Gold Ball Chain, $2950
The chain for this isn’t period obviously, but it looks amazing with it. I’m also happy to sell them separately.

Great War Commemorative Sculptures | Gerry Judah | Via

Gerry Judah’s twin sculptures in the nave of St Paul’s Cathedral have been erected to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. Their white cruciform shapes evoking the meticulously maintained war graves of northern France and further afield, in fact represent an utterly contemporary questioning of the continued need for warfare.

This is public art unafraid of the obvious, not footling with self-expression or abstract aesthetics, but with the world as it was and as it is. And yet in the embedded themes are the great abstracts: God, life, death, love, despair and hope.
