Brick Necklace by Helen Shere
This beautiful necklace is made of silver. It includes a section of oxidised silver to highlight the texture of bricks and gold leaf to show a section of leaves.
Helen's latest collection of jewellery is inspired by the urban textures and leafy details of her native city, Nottingham. Her work will be on display 'In the Window' at Bluecoat Display Centre throughout February.
Chain length: 17 inches
Pendant: 3.5cm (L) x 2cm (H)
Helen says "Nottingham has that wonderful combination of old buildings with rich history, and tree lined streets bringing much needed greenery into the city suburbs. I love the combination of these two elements providing texture and interest as I wander and explore the city. The repetition of the bricks and the little plants often finding a home in the cracks have provided inspiration for my jewellery."
Helen uses metal stamps to ‘draw’ on the surface of the silver, creating illustrative pieces of jewellery full of detail and pattern for you to enjoy. A mixture of casting and fabricating is used to create the jewellery.
