Irregular Ovals chain necklace


A beautiful, handmade chain necklace, crafted from sterling silver wire plated in sumptuous 24ct yellow gold.

As Hilary shapes each oval link by hand, no two are the same, creating an intriguing and delicate long chain. Each link ranges in size from roughly 10mm x 8mm up to 20mm x 10mm.

The necklace measures approximately 82.5cm / 32.5″ in length.

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.
