Pleated wave necklace

£100.00

An arch of layered pleats makes up this asymmetric silver necklace.

The wave spans out winglike, peaking at one end. Each pleat has been meticulously hand carved (front and back) from jewellers wax and then cast in silver. The angles and bevelled edges reflect the light playfully, and give it a contemporary yet art deco styling.

It hangs from a fine hayseed chain, which is adjustable between 16″, 17″ and 18″ and finished with a hallmarked tag. Please get in touch if you’d like it made in a different length or oxidised black.

Pendant measures approx. 4.5cm wide and 2cm high

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.
