L'elisir d'amore Silver Bracelet
The maker, Neil McLaren, explains that with this opera’s central themes of love, and a love elixir to inspire him, this L'elisir d'amore collection features a mix of silver hearts and droplets of potion. The surface of each heart has been delicately textured with lace, pressed into the silver; the gold droplets have been randomly scattered.
Recycled Sterling Silver and 14ct Rose Gold - hallmarked at the London Assay Office (including a commemorative stamp to mark Charles III’s coronation).
Neil McLaren has been commissioned to design and make a set of unique jewellery pieces inspired by the six opera's on stage at Glyndebourne Festival 2023 and the commission includes necklaces, earrings, bracelets and cufflinks. The stories of the operas, as well as the stage designs, will influence Neil's unique creations.
As well as contemporary jewellery designer, Neil is also a musician and first played the flute at Glyndebourne in 1989 with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, in performances of The Marriage of Figaro.
