There are fewer more peaceful or atmospheric places in London than Abney Park Cemetery in Stoke Newington. The overgrown woodland, a resting place of thousands of "dissenters" from Victorian times.
With my love of all things beautiful in decay, as well as lichens and mosses and "palimpsest" (the past bleeding through into the present) this is one of my favourite places for a walk of discovery into the lives of those at rest here. I enjoy taking photos as I discover angels and statues, celtic crosses, carved lions and passion-flowers, lilies and clasped hands, all waiting for the first signs of resurrection. It's only the ivy over their graves that is holding them down.
This pair of silver and baroque pearl earrings were inspired by my visits here, and the way the ivy reclaims the stones. I have imprinted my own ivy leaves on the triangular studs. I love the very slightly fleshy-nacre (pearly shine) of these pear-shaped Baroque pearls. These were made for your afternoon walk in the cool of the woods.
