Jewelry partly tells the tale of the career of actress Jane Seymour. Since the money she made from films went right to her accountant, Seymour explains to Kate Youde that she would use the money she received for food on the set and other extras to buy herself jewelry or a work of art after finishing a film. Seymour still prized the cut steel set she wore in the 1982 film The Scarlet Pimpernel.

One set of earrings is particularly memorable for Seymour, as reported by The Financial Times. The earrings contain small porcelain portraits of women, and were purchased in Seville several days after having to be resuscitated from an accidental overdose of antibiotics when she played Maria Callas in Onassis: The Richest Man in the World. “Every time I wear them, it reminds me that life is very short, ” said Seymour.

Her mother has been an inspiration for her jewelry as well as her painting. Seymour painted some greeting cards for the American Heart Association, and said that whenever she paints a heart, she paints the heart open, following her mother’s advice to keep an open heart to give and receive love. She said for her mother, who survived a Japanese concentration camp in Indonesia, keeping an open heart was of particular importance. The father of Jane Seymour, born Joyce Penelope Wilhelmina Frankenberg, was a British obstetrician with Polish Jewish ancestry.

In honor of her mother, Seymour designed an open heart necklace. The Financial Times reported that after Seymour’s mother had a stroke, she came up with the design, which she eventually sold to Kay Jewelers, which developed Seymour’s Open Heart line.
