This unique necklace is an experimental development of past work. As creators of fine carvings we thought about learning the art of silversmithing. To be honest, we have a long way to go but we were lucky our teachers didn't let us down. Their ability to almost plait the silver onto the stone was amazing and have inspired us to keep searching for new ways to build on old practices. This piece is based on our joint rings series and portrays joint leaves holding each other in mutual support. The risk of breaking what was already hours of work was nerve racking but rewarding. We just love pushing it to the limit as we explore new ideas in a space of infinite potential.
