This necklace is distinctively different to others I have made and I was hugely inspired by the changing colours of autumn and the warmth found in the rich colours of golds and amber.
I found a beautiful antique amber necklace in a little antique shop on the Portobello Rd and loved the variety of amber,; form greens to oranges, this necklace broken up is the base of Amber Wood. The walnut come from my grandmothers orchard in the French Alps and I am really pleased with the combination of texture in this piece. The smoothness of amber, the chains, the silk earring and the wooden nut. The Ferris wheel is an earring I found in a flea market in Barcelona and I love thoughts of the fairground and gypsies wagons that is conjures up.
This piece falls particularly elegantly on the neck.
