Playwright, essayist, poet, and famed letter-writer, Lady Mary Wortley Montagu was also at the vanguard of bringing Smallpox inoculation to the British Isles, having witnessed its success in the Ottoman Empire.
She wrote: “I prefer liberty to chains of diamonds” as rallying cry against the trappings of aristocracy. Her words of wisdom are expertly laser etched and hand inked into the surface of a shimmering cream acrylic sphere, hand curved to mimic a pearl, and suspended from an adjustable gold-tone chain.
Designed and created by Tatty Devine, inspired by the Chawton House collection.
Design measures 3.5cm x 3.5cm.
Total chain length is adjustable from 45cm - 50cm
