Here is hands down the best way to wear your heart out on your sleeve!  The stunning Heartbroken Rodger brooch is a combination of repurposed antique items, reclaimed antique gems and Sam’s heartfelt creativity and craftsmanship.

Sam’s series of  Rodgers centre around black skull carvings, which Sam tweaks until he is happy with its particular expression and character. The Rodger in this particular naval inspired brooch is made from Siberian Jet – the matte finish of the jet is the perfect representation of the heartbreak this poor Rodger suffered. We wonder had he one too many hearts in every port?

This statement brooch is a truly unique a collector’s piece, that would look equally well on a ladies jacket as on a dapper gent’s lapel.

The wide black grosgrain ribbon is suspended by handmade fittings from an antique Naval brooch (15k gold) and connects to Rodger with a repurposed antique fob frame (9k gold). The heart is where Sam’s exquisite eye for detail and expert craftsmanship comes to the fore: the tactile blackened silver puff heart is set with a gorgeous antique ruby weighting 1.56 carats and surrounded by 0.30ct of diamonds.

As always, there is more to Sam’s work than at first meets the eye: the reverse of the silver heart pendant is gold-backed in lush 22 karat gold, whilst the side walls of the heart are channel-set with 1 carat of rich ruby baguettes, securing the two hand-carved buffalo horn bones in place. An exquisite piece that deserves to be admired from every angle.

We have only one of this piece available at the moment – it is unique.
