RED CLIMBING ROSE NECKLACE, Chained Interpretations Collection

Silver trace chain, silver light trace chain, silver cable chain, enamel. L105cm



This latest collection is inspired by found images depicting flora and fauna. The images are chosen for their visual composition or specific aesthetic elements and are given a three dimensional ‘chained interpretation’, thus converting them into wearable pieces of jewellery. Unlike the making process used in preceding work, each enamel colour is fused and fired on the chain separately and the piece is constructed afterwards from the previously enamelled chain. This allows the piece to evolve, with the various types of chain and colours mixing and intertwining, translating the image into a pixelated relief of textured layers.
