The Jewelry of Angharad Rees

Updated on June 26, 2011

Angharad Rees is a Welsh actress best known internationally for her role as Demelza on the BBC series Poldark. But did you know that she is also a designer of fine jewelry? If you are looking for something different by way of personal adornment, you might consider purchasing an Angharad Rees original.

Antique Venetian African Trade Beads

Angharad Rees has traveled the world over looking for fine materials from which to create her unique style of jewelry. Amethyst and turquoise, glass beads and Chinese hair pins, what material, no matter how expensive or how trifling, has she not used to create her art?

I highly recommend her antique venetian African trade beads. Gorgeous in their colors, sensual in their detail, there is nothing like an African necklace made of Venetian beads, and no one designs them quite like Angharad Rees.

When you imagine that such beads were taken for rare gemstones at one point by natives unfamiliar with the manufacturing process, really who would not shell out ninety-five pounds for such a trifle?

Selling, Selling Out and the Art of Seduction

The art of selling is the art of seduction. And who better to seduce us with her charms than the woman who played Demelza, the young servant maid who seduced Ross Poldark and won his heart!

Buy the Beads or Make your Own?

What is branding? Why would anyone ever buy into a brand name? Angharad Rees wonders about this herself in her newsletter. She notes that people in China could buy knock-offs of her jewelry at a fraction of the price, but they choose to buy the genuine article.

Why buy beaded jewelry when you could make your own? The answer depends on who you are and what you like to do. If you are like Angharad Rees, you like to use your creativity to design new and amazing things out of the least expensive materials. If you are one of Angharad Rees's fans, you want to buy something that she has made, because that is like buying a piece of her: a holy relic.

Buy Into the Myth and Enhance Your Image

It's about the art of seduction. It's about beauty and image and making the most of the raw materials with which you have been endowed. Do others buy what you are selling? Or do you buy what they have to offer? Who makes the better deal and what is the bargain that you have made with life? Have you sold yourself short? Or are you able to glide through life on a wing and a prayer? Are you a toiler in the field or a lily for adornment?

It's all about buying and selling, isn't it? The important thing in life is to enjoy the sale. So if you are interested in enhancing your own image with the help of glass beads and a little magic, take a tip from Angharad Rees. It isn't what you have on or what it is worth in the marketplace. It's how you sell it, and who helps you to take it off at the end of the day!
