Delicate Silver Necklace
A delicate silver necklace deeply textured and full of curling movement. Blackened with a burnish polished finish to highlight the texture. I hand-forged this necklace from one piece of sterling silver. As a result, it is a curling design, full of movement like the guitar playing that inspired it. I never make the same thing twice consequently this delicate silver necklace is a one-off piece.
Inspired by Music and Synaesthesia
I am synaesthetic which is a neurological trait where the senses cross. Therefore I have a strong visual impression of shape, colour, movement and sometimes texture when I hear music. What I see when I listen to music inspired this delicate silver necklace. I listen to music as I make and transfer the movement and energy from the music through my hands to my work. As a result, the shapes in this delicate silver necklace are little snippets of electric guitar music made visible by my synaesthesia. Hence this pendant twists like crackled and distorted electric guitar playing. If you want to know more about my synaesthesia and how the Guitar Distortion Series of jewellery came about, read this: How Vivid Synaesthesia and Muse Live Briefly Disintegrated My Conscious Mind.
The sterling silver I used to make this delicate silver necklace is recycled from old and broken silverware and cutlery. Consequently, I can eliminate the need for newly mined silver in my work. I melted a piece of old silverware down. Then I hand forged the resulting ingot of molten silver into this carefully crafted pendant.
