The Initial Spark — Regular price £280.00

This collection is a treasure trove of armour: little emblems of protection, in the form of sculptural hands and Sicilian bleeding hearts, along with gilded chain vests, belts with small tools clipped on, and of course, glass vessels, to fill with adventures to come.” - Rosh Mahtani

“Poca favilla gran fiamma seconda”

- Great fire leaps from the smallest spark

Paradiso, canto i

In challenging moments, of which Dante describes many, it can be difficult to remember that great fires start from a tiny spark. The Initial Spark necklaces references one of the first lines in Dante’s Paradiso: “Great fire leaps from the smallest spark.” This necklace is a reminder to be courageous, and ignite a spark, from time to time.
