Gold Vermeil Partridge Wishbone Necklace
Fiona Dean uses Fairmined gold – from mines that are free of exploitation and which respect the workers and the environment – to create her exquisite vermeil jewellery, in which a thick layer of gold is coated on top of sterling silver. For this partridge wishbone necklace, a real wishbone was used to create a mould which is then filled with sterling silver using the 'lost wax' method – an ancient technique that recreates an exact likeness.

She trained with the Scottish taxidermist George Jamieson and has developed a fascination with this process. For her jewellery, she starts with part of a bird – a bone or claw – and makes a wax mould. She then creates an exact likeness of the original piece by pouring molten silver into the mould. This ancient technique – which has been used to capture the fine detail of metal objects since at least 3,000 BC – is known as the ‘lost wax’ method.
