Quotation Jewelry by Victoria Contreras

By on Tuesday, March 02, 2010 5 Comments

I have seen many jewelry designs which include words like "Inspire", "Dream", "Love" and so on. But a whole sentence? Just check out the amazing quotation jewelry by Spanish artisan Victoria Contreras Flores. The acrylic and metal chain pieces from her Words Collection are visually stunning and perfect for literature fans.

Her inspiration comes from famous writers. On the right is her TS Eliot necklace which features the opening lines from his 1922 poem, "The Waste Land". The Virgina Woolf necklace is from one of her 1929 essays.


For those who prefer understated jewelry, check out her Vernon Lee (the pseudonym of British gothic writer Violet Paget) "Amour Dure-Dure Amour" necklace which translates as "Love that lasts, cruel love". The newly designed earrings are my favorite from her collection because she makes clever use of the phrase.


Update : Victoria also has a website showcasing her art.

  3. Thanks for the thumbs up!

    I enjoy jewelry making very much and making more and more people get into the craft. The beading parties are just that - a small group of beaders who get together to design their own jewelry. It's a wonderful afternoon of creating and laughter with people you know.

  5. Certainly a unique spin on the fashionable one word jewelry.
    Since my personal preference in jewelry has always been understated, I'm drawn to the simple one line necklace "Amour Dure-Dure Amour". The earrings are sweet too, with each one containing half of the phrase.
