Full Shard necklace in silver

£450.00

Inspired by paper folding techniques, this beautiful necklace is constructed from multi-faceted, satin silver shards. The shards have been meticulously hand carved from jewellers wax and then cast in silver. Each concave section dips inwards to form a paper-like crease in its centre, and light is softly reflected from within.

Each shard measures approx. 25mm long by 5mm wide, and the necklace measures 17.75″ / 45cm in total length. The necklace is finished with a handmade ‘S’ hook clasp.

The full shard necklace can be made in different lengths – please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

By designer: Alice Barnes

Inspired by a combination of repetitive forms and kirigami paper art, every piece in Alice’s Square Roots collection begins life as one or two square sheets of responsibly sourced, recycled silver. Nothing is subtracted from these sheets, with the aim of drawing complex beauty from simplicity. Each one is pattern cut by hand, and then folded and formed into a 3D item of contemporary jewellery.

Emulating stiff pleated fabric, shards of reflective glass and folded paper, her Pleated Collection has an art deco like quality with a contemporary edge. Each design has been meticulously hand carved from jewellers wax, cast in precious metals and matt finished by hand to give a soft and subtle sheen.

Alice grew up in London, studied at the Birmingham School of Jewellery, and now lives on the south coast in Brighton. She spent 10 years working within the jewellery trade before designing and making her own jewellery range.
