A Widow in Her Weeds

This story bracelet depicts a moment from Walter de la Mare's children's book, Peacock Pie. It is etched with storybook thorns, swirling sky and handwritten text. The luminous, bronze diorama is crowned with a solid sterling silver bumble bee, ready to take flight.

"Like Oberon's meadows her garden is

Drowsy from dawn to dusk with bees– 

And all she has is all she needs–

A poor Old Widow in her weeds."
– Walter de la Mare
