Necklaces with a roundness of rhythm are taking shape on the necks of forward thinking fashion plates. Notice how these two examples from Brits Sarah Hutchison and Christine Kaltoft use positive and negative space to define the character of each piece. Hutchison’s palette of silver, gold plate and freshwater pearls creates a pastel-hued depth-perception that delicately balances dark and light.
Kaltoft envisioned this one of a kind necklace from the movement of birds,
“My current collection is based on a series of sketches I made of birds as they strutted, pecked, flapped and preened. My aim was to capture their lightness, elegant volumes, movement and essential birdiness. Some of this collection was also inspired by a battery hen rescue I helped with. The scared, flapping mass of creatures gradually revealed themselves to be spirited, curious individuals, eager to start carrying out normal chicken behaviours in their new retirement homes. These pieces reflect themes of containment and release.”
