This necklace is part of my Stripes collection. This series generally focuses on the effect created by stripes, but was inspired by the idea of ‘the space between’.
The pieces in this series are handmade from recycled silver and recycled gold. The 24ct gold is attached to the silver through a process called Keum-Boo – an ancient Korean technique of heat-bonding pure gold foil to silver.
Each pendant is made to order and threaded onto 3 rows of flexible stainless spiral steel neck wire with a double-clip clasp. The neck wire is sourced from a company which produces this extremely flexible wire which is made by winding a flat wire around a specially constructed centre. This ensures maximum protection against kinking of the wire.
The pendant is completely removable from the neck wire. This is due to UK hallmarking regulations. The piece is hallmarked at the London Assay Office.
Length of necklace: 41 cm. Size of pendant: 25 x 21 mm.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
