Stephen Webster has extended the The Seven Deadly Sins collection to include seven silver and gilt pendants at more affordable prices than the limitited editions rings launched last year. Look all seven pendants and you will see that in Webster's hands, sinning looks like good fun.
The seven all cost £650 and are a whole a lot Stephen Webster for your buck. And in case you are not acquainted with them, the original sins are Greed, Envy, Lust, Sloth, Pride, Wrath and Gluttony. Greed is represented by golden coins and a blingy large 'diamond'. I can just see Ebenezer Scrooge rubbing his hands with glee at the thought of all that lovely lolly. Sloth places an lazy blue stone on a plush red cushion and writhing legs in stockings and arms suggest hanky panky in the Lust ring. Envy is, of course, a representation of the green eyed monster lurking under a lush green stone while for Pride a purple gem is surrounded by a ruff of peacock feathers. Gluttony are wide-open cherry red bejewelled lips with glossy white teeth just waiting to chomp up anything tasty. Wrath shows a woman's hands complete with a red manicured finger nails clutching a heart.
In dreaming up this decadent set of rings, Webster says: "In the context of the 21st century, the seven deadly sins my not be admirable but are no longer considered punishable by death. And whilst everyone knows what each of the sins represent, not everyone knows the individual punishments administered in hell by the old devil himself..." And I think Webster is referring to Lucifer, and not his good self.
