Welcome to ORNAMENTODEUX(MY OTHER BLOG). I want to share thought provoking ideas, videos and inspirational images that I find on my Internet meanderings, and pictures I take on my personal meanderings. There's not always a place for them on Ornamento my main blog, so I am sharing them with you here.

Amulet, England, ca. 1540-1560.
This pendant of enameled gold, garnet, peridot, and sapphire has a open-backed setting to allow the stones direct contact with the wearer’s skin—for very good reason. The alleged healing properties of these specifically-chosen stones and the inscription in the setting were thought to protect the wearer from epilepsy.
