Ceramic tile of 'The Darnley Jewel', hand painted using underglaze colours with a matt raised transparent glaze.

Part of a new series of famous jewels from history. The heart shaped locket is said to have been commissioned in the 1570’s by Margaret Douglas, Countess of Lennox, for her husband, who died in battle in 1571. The complex design of the Jewel hints at love and ambition for power through the iconography and mottoes applied to the inside and outside of the locket or ‘tablet’ as it was called in the 16th century.
