Purchase Handmade Bead Jewelry at: ********www.etsy****/shop/carmilitaearrings WATCH FOR WEEKLY SPECIALS FEW brooches and finger rings are almost the only surviving examples of English jewelry of the eleventh to the fifteenth centuries. Yet there is evidence from existing records of an abundance of the most beautiful objects as accumulated in the ecclesiastical treasuries, and the great shrines, like that of St. Thomas of Canterbury, or of Our Lady of Wal-singham Priory, which not even the Santa Casa at Loreto, or the shrine of St. James at Compostella, could surpass in renown, or equal in the reception of rich and costly gifts. Vast quantities of jeweled objects, which must have been in great part native productions, have also been tabulated in the inventories of our monarchs, princes, guilds, and corporations. Judging from extant examples of English painted glass, sculpture, and particularly embroidery, some estimate can be formed of the high quality of the goldsmiths' work, which was scarcely excelled in the Middle Ages by that of any other country in Europe.

Purchase Handmade Bead Jewelry at: ********www.etsy****/shop/carmilitaearrings WATCH FOR WEEKLY SPECIALS Of the objects selected for the purpose are preserved in the inventories of the Exchequer, and among the city archives. In spite of attempted restrictions, and notwithstanding the disastrous Wars of the Roses, immense demands appear to have been made upon the productive powers of the jewelers throughout the whole of the fifteenth century. The remarkable list of Henry IV's jewels in the inventories of the Exchequer, and the most important of royal English inventories of the Middle Ages, that taken after the death of Henry V in 1422 serve to show that until the end of the century, which may serve as the termination of the period, extraordinary extravagance in the style and nature of ornaments as well as of costume was the order of the day.

Purchase Handmade Bead Jewelry at: ********www.etsy****/shop/carmilitaearrings WATCH FOR WEEKLY SPECIALS Cameos in Medieval jewelry encroached upon here to demonstrate the prominent place occupied by antique gems in the personal ornaments of the Middle Ages. Their use for signet rings will be referred to again, but attention must be drawn to the three most remarkable examples of their application toother articles of jewelry—the Jewel of St. Hilary and the Cameo of Charles V in the Bibliotheque Nationale at Paris, and the Schaffhausen Onyx, preserved among the archives of the town of Schaffhausen in Switzerland. The Jewel of St. Hilary contains a fine cameo head in profile of the Emperor Augustus on a sardonyx. It is enclosed in a frame of silver gilt set with large rubies, sapphires, and pearls. The jewel was formerly employed as a pectoral or breast-ornament upon a silver reliquary bust of St. Hilary preserved in the Treasury of St. Denis.

Purchase Handmade Bead Jewelry at: ********www.etsy****/shop/carmilitaearrings WATCH FOR WEEKLY SPECIALS Medieval head ornaments and necklaces from the tenth to the sixteenth century belong for the most part rather to the general history of costume than to that of jewelry only, and it will be unnecessary to follow those extravagances of fashion which, especially during the fifteenth century, were presented by the head-dress of women.

Purchase Handmade Bead Jewelry at: ********www.etsy****/shop/carmilitaearrings WATCH FOR WEEKLY SPECIALS A Medieval Hat badge example is a fifteenth-century Flemish jewel of gold, representing a " pelican in her piety" standing upon a scroll, and set with a ruby and a small pointed diamond. In the Victoria and Albert Museum is a circular gold enseigne of open-work enriched with Gothic foliations. The outer rim is set with seven small rubies. In the center is an antique onyx cameo representing a lion. It is Spanish work of the second half of the fifteenth century. These two jewels are clearly hat-ornaments, but it is often difficult to distinguish between a brooch or touche intended to be worn upon the dress and a hat-brooch, though the latter can, as a rule, be distinguished by its form or by its subject.

The wearing of religious emblems in the form of pendants by the Christians of the Middle Ages was possibly, in the first place, the unconscious perpetuation of pagan superstition. The demand for a convenient mode of carrying a reliquary may account in some degree for the use of necklaces in early times. Relics of the saints and of the Passion of our Lord were most eagerly sought after by medieval Christendom, and whenever a relic of unusual importance was obtained, all the resources of the art of the time were employed to give it a worthy setting.

Sighisoara is one of the 7 fortified Saxon cities in Transylvania, known as "Siebenburgen", together with Brasov (Kronstadt), Cluj (Klausenburg), Sibiu (Hermannstadt), Bistrita (Bistritz) Medias (Mediasch), Sebes (Mühlbach). According to the legend the lost children of Hamelin emerged from the ‘Almasch’ (Varghis) cave into Transylvania - just to the north of Baraolt in 1284, lured there by the magical tune of the Pied Piper, a 'Romany' who had been cheated by the burghers after ridding them of their plague of rats. This is the 'romantic' explanation for the presence in Transylvania of Germans following ancient customs, yet isolated by hundreds of kilometers from Germany. The reality is that the fortified towns and villages of Transylvania were established in the 12th Century by settlers from the Moselle region, referred to locally as 'Saxons'( Romanian-'sashi'). They were attracted to Transylvania by favorable market rights by the Hungarian rulers who wanted them there to guard the mountain passes against Tatar and Ottoman raiders. They created the 'Siebenbürgen', the seven fortified cities, while in villages they constructed fortified churches in which they could shelter during times of siege. UNESCO has designated several of these villages and the mediaeval citadel of Sighisoara as Heritage Sites.
