“I believe that if medieval and Renaissance people revered jewelry as an art form, then modern society should as well.” - Gresham

Pendants were the most important and influential jewelry item of the Italian Renaissance. Worn in a variety of ways, pendants were large charms that attached to chains, strings and belts to add rich embellishment. Our Grande Perla Pendant by Gresham can be worn on any and every type of necklace - chain, beaded or strung. The pendant comes with an open bail which can attach to any necklace allowing for infinite styling.

  • Approx. 1.5"

I’ve been stringing beads together ever since I was a young girl. I like to say I grew up making friendship bracelets just like every other little girl, except I never stopped. Ever since I can remember I’ve been interested in jewelry. Growing up I constantly took jewelry classes learning how to string, knot, wire wrap, solder, melt and design. I held my first trunk show in the sixth grade with 40 necklaces I made by hand and sold out! I continued creating and selling throughout my adolescent years and furthered my interest throughout college. I’ve always been drawn to the Italian Renaissance so I focused my collegiate studies on the art history of jewelry design and craft in that period. During this time I wrote my senior thesis titled, “Technical and Stylistic Changes in Jewelry from the Time of Theophilus to the Time of Cellini” which explores the significance of jewelry design during the Renaissance.
