Handmade bib necklace with textured silver (N0070)
This collar necklace is made with fine tube-shape pieces that compose the string part, and six handmade silver pieces. They were crafted from a silver strip that we textured on surface with natural materials (wooden tree bark, straw, dry teak tree leaves, etc). The silver strip was thinned to roughly around 0.5 mm thickness by passing it into a rolling mill together with various materials that left the surface textured with beautiful, deeply embossed, natural patterns. Five pieces of silver strip were cut in different simple geometric forms, smoothed on edges and bent into the final shape. The hook that allows to string through the necklace is soldered at the back of each piece.
Because of the manual process of texturing the metal we can never recreate 100% same surface, however we will make sure the final effect is about the same. Uniqueness of the product is what makes it special, as no two necklaces can be exactly the same.
