The Rebecca convex mirror frame is made of wood composite that I re-finished and gilded it in gold metal leaf. The rays of the sunburst are layered with gold, bronze, yellow and straw Venetian glass rods. The area surrounding the mirror are studded with spheres of citrine and smoky quartz.
This mirror is about 6.25 inches in diameter. A person could wear this as a brooch! It is in my studio until being shipped to one of my showrooms.
Jewelry for walls!
The Rebecca convex mirror is named after the novel by Daphne du Maurier. And, of course, by the Academy award winning movie directed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1940. If you haven’t seen this Gothic romance you are in for a treat. If you haven’t seen the sickening, Rebecca obsessed housekeeper of Manderley, Mrs. Danvers, played by Judith Anderson you are going to be tingly all over.
The opening line from the novel/movie is “Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.”— The second Mrs de Winter
