Hanna graded chain tube necklace, silver or oxidised silver
This Hanna necklace is a beautifully shaped sculptural necklace, gradually tapering in and out in width, a tube of silver or oxidised silver hallmarked chain. It is a wonderful statement necklace and is light, voluminous and incredibly comfortable to wear.
The standard length of the necklace is 52cm and it can be made in any length desired to commission.
Each loop is handmade, soldered and hammered giving it great durability. The clasp is a strong loop in loop mechanism, very easy to put on and remove. The necklace holds its tube form when worn.
This necklace was purchased by the Goldsmiths' Company in 2019 for their Permanent Collection. The following paragraph was written by Dr Dora Thornton, The Goldsmiths' Company;
Thompson has adapted a medieval armourer’s technique to make a completely contemporary piece. The necklace is formed from fine gauge silver wire formed into individual links of oxidised silver, hammered and soldered together to make unique, complex patterns. Thompson notes that “The intricate unit construction technique is time consuming; however, the magic of watching a piece come to life during its creation is extremely rewarding”. The result is a necklace that is remarkably strong, durable, and full of movement. It is as inviting to the hand as to the eye; it is fun to play with and it drapes beautifully when worn. Acquired at the 2019 Goldsmiths’ Fair.
When the necklace is not being worn the form collapses into itself which makes it easy for storage and travel.
