stanhopes


i just read the most marvelous post by [Tara] at Nothing Elegant and i simply had to link to it here. [Tara] (whose blog is fantastic and must be visited) writes of a magical victorian trinket called a stanhope, of which i had never heard, which contains a tiny photographic lense. read more about it in [Tara]'s post and see more pictures of these lovely treasures here. i am so hopelessly in love with this idea that i may become a collector!

I love Victorian jewelry! I have only seen very plain stanhopes before, but I should keep an eye out for interesting ones.
