Theo Fennell Halloween jewellery
Halloween in different countries is celebrated differently. It is a holiday of ghosts, witches, ghouls, vampires and all other evil spirits. The history of Halloween has its roots in Celtic mythology, when people celebrated days of Samhain, the lord of the dead, and the prince of darkness. In the IX century, these ancient traditions blended with another Catholic holiday – the day of All Saints. People dresses up in costumes of dark forces. For me personally, it’s not a holiday. Generally I do not like everything about the dark forces, but I appreciate creativity and art connected with this holiday. Theo Fennell jewellery is truly piece of art, beautifully crafted and designed, with immaculate attention to detail. Exquisite handmade jewelry of thirty year-old exceptional craftsmanship, beautiful and ornate designs, Theo Fennell Halloween jewellery is made of precious metals and stones – diamonds, rubies, emeralds.
British jeweler Theo Fennell was born in Egypt, spent his childhood living all over the world – Singapore, Pakistan, France and Germany. The influence of these early years remains ever-present in his work, with many of his designs inspired by the landscapes of his childhood. Theo Fennell graduated from Eton College, Art School at York, and later The Byam Shaw. At The Byam Shaw he developed an obsession with detail, and a desire to interpret grand design on a miniature scale.
To die:—to sleep:
No more; and, by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished.
Act III, scene 1, line 60. Hamlet (1600-02). William Shakespeare
For he being dead, with him is beauty slain,
And, beauty dead, black chaos comes again.

Here is my journey’s end, here is my butt,
And very sea-mark of my utmost sail.

Death, death; oh, amiable, lovely death!
Come, grin on me, and I will think thou smilest.

“Jewellery and silverware should be engaging and often romantic as well as beautiful. Above all, it should give a thrill of pleasure every time it is looked at or worn.” Theo Fennell
