    The Last Dance Collection is inspired by Mata Hari. Born Margaretha Geertruida Zelle in the Netherlands in 1876. Being the only daughter of a rich merchant she enjoyed being the center of attention as a child. However, Margaretha's life changed when her family went bankrupt in 1889 and her mother died two years later. Shortly after this at the age of 18, she married a military officer and moved with him to his station in Java, now Indonesia. This is when she became familiar with the dances she would later perform as Mata Hari.

    Her husband became dominant and abusive and she filed for divorce and then moved to Paris. Without a husband, career, and money, she used her experiences in Indonesia to create a new persona. Her ritual dances became a sensation, the snakes seen in the collection are inspired by these dances. With her fame as now Mata Hari she attained the life she always hoped for herself full of lavishness and luxury that can be felt in the pieces within the collection dripping with up-cycled vintage chandelier crystals.

    Her fame began to decline during WWI as she was now in her 40s. This is when she was approached by both France and Germany to spy on the other. She accepted payment from both sides and in 1917 she was convicted and executed as a double agent. In 2014 when court documents were released to the public it was clear there was no evidence of her leaking information to France or Germany. She maintained her innocence up until the time of her death.

    Materials

    Brass

    On our larger pieces we use mostly brass. Brass is a very durable metal and will give your pieces longevity as you pass them on from generation to generation. In spiritual and metaphysical traditions Brass is the metal that brings out the natural good and inner truth.

    The manufacture of brass across the world is highly dependent on the recycling of scrap brass and copper making brass one of the most recycled metals in the world. Brass can be recycled many times over without diminishing the composition so it means that the recycling process can continue tie and again, thus making the metal highly sustainable.

    Silver

    All of our gemstone rings are made with 925 Silver. In astrologySilver due to the illumination has a close relationship with the Moon. Silver offers positivity and increases love and security. When gemstones are used in silver it is said that the energy of that gemstone reaches the wearer directly.

    18kt Gold Plating

    Unless the item is left in its 925 silver form, all pieces are 18Kt gold plated. This way the final product takes on the look of a solid gold piece of jewelry. Gold-plated jewelry is a thin layer of gold alloy that's bonded to the base metal of the jewelry. The layer of gold placed on to the surface of will wear off over time. As the pieces will join you on your adventures, their natural aging process will add to the beauty and story of each piece.

    Natural Gemstones, Pearls and Up-cycled elements

    All the gemstones and pearls used in the collections are ethically sourced and natural. Natural gemstone jewelry is eternal and have positive properties for the wearer such as connection and purpose, making them a benefit both physically and spiritually.

    Our up-cycled element such as the crystals used in the Last Dance collection are found from antique shops in various cities and is our way of bringing new life to discarded materials of the past. Shining light on the forgotten past is a core inspiration of our collections.
