Gold plated Tubes necklace


An eye catching, long necklace made from 15 delicately textured, gold plated tubes, strung on an oxidised silver snake chain, with a handmade clasp.

Hilary textures the fine sheet silver and then forms each tube individually so no two are the same. The tubes are then plated in 24ct gold. Each tube has a slightly squashed appearance and their lengths vary between approximately 30mm and 45mm.

The total length of the necklace is 65 cm / 25.5″.

We also stock Hilary’s matching gold plated, Tube drop earrings.

By designer: Hilary Brown

Hilary is a jeweller at heart, although past work has strayed into the realms of spoons and vessels - the Crafts Council have some of her spoons in their collection.

She began her career in the 1980s making jewellery from thin sheet acrylic and experimenting with achieving a thin papery feel to a brittle man-made material. A selection of these early pieces is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Arts Houston, USA and the jewellery collection of the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Arts.

After a long break to raise children and a stint as an interior designer, Hilary is back at the jeweller’s bench currently working in silver on one-off and limited edition pieces. The current ‘crumpled’ series of pieces are inspired by playing around with crumpled paper – the thin theme again, and her love of ancient jewellery, especially that which has been crushed and flattened by centuries of being buried in a forgotten hoard.
