Long silver tube necklace


Eye catching, long silver necklace made from 15 textured silver tubes strung on a snake chain with a handmade silver clasp.

Hilary textures the fine sheet silver and then forms each tube individually so no two are the same. Each tube has a slightly squashed appearance and their lengths vary between 31mm and 52mm.

The total length of the necklace is approximately 81.25cm / 32″.

We stock matching riveted, tube earrings; please see more of Hilary’s ‘Crumpled’ collection online.

This beautiful necklace is also available in a warm gold version, with matt gold plated tubes on an oxidised silver chain.

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.
