Virgil (Publius Vergilius Maro) lived and flourished in Rome (70-19 BC) and was a classical Roman poet, one of Rome's greatest. He is most famous for his Aeneid, a twelve book epic describing the founding of Latium by the Trojan hero Aeneas, and two pastoral poems - the Eclogues and Georgics.
'Amor vincit omnia' comes from Eclogue X, line 69. It is one of the most beautiful verses in Latin and in English it translates as 'Love Conquers All'. I made this necklace as an entry for the weekly EST challenge, hosted by ingermaaike, who picked the theme 'Roman Empire'. I wanted to celebrate the beauty of the phrase, and also to present the origin of Amoronia, the name of my jewelry line. So here is Amor Vincit Omnia, the Necklace, by Amoronia on Etsy:
I made the necklace using an antique brass oval setting and faceted Czech glass beads in jet black graduating sizes. I also used brass wire to connect everything. I finished the necklace with a beautiful antique brass chain. Wouldn't you just love wearing this phrase?
