A collection of necklaces, made from: silver, brass & enamel.
In this collection I am trying to capture the moment in which a memory is starting to fade away, and that all we are left with is a faded version of it in the end.
This was the conceptual idea behind the design.
The aesthetic language I've designed for this collection is inspired by grave yards and grave stones.
In each necklace there is at least one piece made of silver and enamel, entwined or captured by the strings of metal as though it's caught inside a spider's web.
This idea of fading memories is an idea I keep coming back to, it fascinates me and terrifies me a the same time.
