Eastlake Pendant, Bronze or Sterling Silver
This piece was crafted using a door or window handle originally dating from the 1880s in the Eastlake Victorian design. The crisp and geometric floral Eastlake patterns have a timeless beauty, and I thought the form of the handle would translate well as a pendant necklace. I have hand-cast the original using lost-wax casting in both bronze and sterling silver, and then oxidize and polish them.
The Eastlake Movement was an American nineteenth-century architectural and household design reform movement started by architect and writer Charles Eastlake. He popularized William Morris's notions of decorative arts in the Arts and Crafts style, becoming one of the principal exponents of the revived Early English or Modern Gothic style. The movement is generally considered part of the late Victorian period.
