Southern Gates Jewelry - Pendants
The Southern Gates Pendant and Necklaces are from the Southern Gates Jewelry Collection whith the Ornamental Southern Gates Style with the Tree of Life, Hearts and Ornamental designs found throughout the South in the Iron Gates, , particularly in Charleston South Carolina and New Orleans in the French Quarter.
Ornamental ironwork in the 18th and 19th centuries reflected the influence of blacksmiths who gorged art into gates, grilles and balconies. The Southern Gates Collection is reminiscent of the art in that ironwork. This Southern Gates Jewelry is a tribute to the skills of artisans in the past who wrought beauty from the iron in their forges. The intricate scroll designs show as well in sterling silver as they do in decorative ironwork.
