Hinged Copper Necklace, with Reg Agate and Garnet Stones
A Unique, one of a kind piece of Art Jewellery, full of texture and depth!
5 asymetrical tiles Joined together with hinges and decorated with Gemstones.
Every single tile comes from raw Copper sheet that I hammered and punched with several different tools to achieve these organic shapes.
The 3 central stones are Red Agate and the peripheral ones Garnet.
Because philosophically I will not use soldering or brazing in my work, this design presented significant technical challenges.
All the Tiles are joined to one another with hinges that comprise the collar of the necklace.
The Hinges had to be individually designed to ensure precise "tile-to-tile" fit, as well as combining to form a perfect neck collar,
while tiny little cutouts had to be hand-sawed accurately on each tile for the hinges to slot into .
Beautifully finished and hand polished.
Will sit widely around the neck at a medium height.
Very comfortable to wear!
