Deep Romantic Strand • Lapis Lazuli and Onyx • Xanadu collection

Regular price €55 EUR

“But oh! that deep romantic chasm which slanted
Down the green hill athwart a cedarn cover!
A savage place! as holy and enchanted
As e’er beneath a waning moon was haunted
By woman wailing for her demon-lover!” 

In 1797 the poet Coleridge sat down to write the opium-inspired epic poem Kubla Khan, where in the most melodic way he describes a fantastical fictional pleasure dome in mythical Xanadu. This poem is what inspired my collection Xanadu, with designs envisioned from its rich imagery as well as themes of romanticism and poppies.

Three gemstone strands were created for this collection, inspired by its colours and romanticism. In this one, I paired deep blue lapis lazuli nuggets with polished black onyx spheres. The strand can be worn at full length, or doubled over for a very wearable romantic look. 

You will be getting the very piece pictured.
