Ferian jewellery takes its cue from the origins of symbolic jewellery. Swivel fobs became fashionable in the 19th century as decorative attachments to a gentleman’s watch. The ‘swivel’ was often engraved with a motto or crest used to imprint the motif in a wax seal, ensuring letters remained private and tamper proof.

Ferian's designer Leonie Branston has a special interest in preserving and reframing British crafts so they can be enjoyed and appreciated by a contemporary audience. At Ferian we are particularly drawn to the vintage Wedgwood cameos dating from the 1950s-80s featuring heraldry, nature and nautical motifs for use in our jewellery.
Abolitionist, potter, entrepreneur, Josiah Wedgwood revolutionised ceramics. His pioneering spirit transformed a cottage industry into an art form, and his legacy is internationally renowned today. Founded in the 1770s the elegant designs were influenced by classicism, but his pottery though decorative was functional, durable and made to be enjoyed and used by generations. The signature fine matt porcelain — known as Jasperware, was developed after over 10,000 experiments. Many unique colours were created; Dark blue, Portland blue, Lilac and Sage green, but by far the most famous is the Pale blue, a tone recognisable around the world today. The patterned bas-relief motifs were delicately applied by hand then kiln fired.
The Stoke-on-Trent pottery is now a museum, owned by the Victoria and Albert Museum.
