Ann’s pearls

Textured sterling silver box clasp on pearls.

Ann’s treasured long string of pearls were rarely being worn. We decided to make them into a chunky-clasped five string bracelet with a twist, a piece that could be worn informally during the day or to dress up at night. As Ann loves silver jewellery, 100% silver was chosen over gold or sterling silver. Pure silver will not tarnish and require excessive cleaning that would upset the pearls.

The lovely texture is imprinted from a plate I have made from a collection of Ben’s Kimberley drawings. You’ll see more of these patterns in the next season’s collection.
