Baroque pearls with gold roundels.
I didn’t want such a long strand. But you win some, you lose some.
I have long been obsessed with Lovers Eye jewelry. I had one made for Geillis at the Gathering. Let me the first to say that once again, to use one of these at the time of our story is inaccurate. Lovers Eyes did not show up for another 40 years
Many have asked for more information about them, so here you go.
Some samples of the real thing.
I wish, wish, wish I had pictures of all of our actors in costume. I only have this small screenshot, but it shows a little. Hopefully something bigger will show up at some point.
Anyway, Geillis is wearing an Arisaid, a Scottish woman’s plaid. It is purely an ornamental garment, obviously, as it is made of sheer fabric, and clasped at the shoulder with a Lovers Eye brooch.
I used a man’s leather belt, with a jeweled buckle, at her waist, as both a nod to Highland men, and as a way to provide contrast to her delicate, translucent costume. Feminine, but dangerous.
The painted eye belongs to Charles Stuart.
Sorry the quality of the photos is so bad.
She did knit some fabulous things in her spare time. A most industrious and very creative woman.
I know there is tremendous interest, but… Just need to say again, that I have absolutely nothing to do with the sale of any goods associated with Outlander. Nothing whatsoever. I don’t own any of the garments on the show, nor the rights to them, or to what, how or when things are sold.
I have put a link to a pattern for mitts sold by someone completely unrelated to Outlander, If you scroll down on the blog you will find it.
I have also included some images from our early research, some interesting “bits”.
Thanks so much!!!
