Necklace with 2 handmade textured silver rolls (N0069)
The necklace is made of silver snake chain that closes with simple handmade silver hook.
The two roll-pieces that the chain carries (they move freely on the chain) 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 1 mm thickness by passing it into a rolling mill together with various materials that left the surface textured with beautiful, deeply embossed, natural patterns. Two pieces of silver strip were cut and then simply “rolled” (wrapped to overlap by means of round pliers) into the final shape. The two rolls are of different width (one approx. 16 mm, the other 34 mm) and have uneven (smooth to the touch) edges, so the final result has a very organic feel, that emphasises nicely the rough-looking, irregular natural surface. The clean, precisely fabricated necklace silver chain contrasts nicely with the two heavy, handmade roll-pieces (the weight of the two pieces alone is about 18 g).
We also have a matching bracelet in our shop.
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.
