Product Details

Description:

Made of fine silver, 999. Recycled.
This design is inspired by the repetitive patterns found in ancient Kongo symbols : the diamonds, the arrows and the colour black. The melted glass bead represents Kala : the black point from which life begins.
The choker is adjustable between 40 and 45 cm. The chain is handmade in fine silver. The silver – certified recycled – is textured to imitate the grain of the sand from which glass is made. The glass beads are handmade from recycled glass by artisans in Ghana and I melt them again gently to snug into their silver case.

Weight: 4.3 gm
Dimensions: 45 cm
Care Instructions:

Silver naturally tarnishes with exposure to air.
Wash with warm water, not hot. Dilute dish soap in a sink full of warm water before adding the silver items to avoid dark spots from concentrated dish detergent.
Lemon juice works very well to clean your jewellery. Rinse clean with warm water.

Story:

This piece is part of the glass collection. In this collection I play with glass beads traditionally handmade by artisans in Ghana.
I am fascinated by this material – Glass – that is made only from sand and heat. It can change shape again and again, indefinitely, with a new purpose each time. So I work the fine silver – which is also recycled – to resemble the grainy texture of sand. I also explore traditional jewellery design from nomadic cultures in northern Africa.
