'The daily cycle' neckpiece
Inspired by the simple repetition of daily life, and in particular, the repetition of season and crop cycle, this neckpiece is fabricated from oxidised sterling silver, with a steel element from a vintage printed tin.
The links on this piece were originally created from a steel ‘Dinkie’ hair slide, which was re-worked as a laser welded construction before casting. The embossed trademark is still visible and the welded seams are left, celebrating the process of fabrication. These elements interlock in the same way as a daisy chain, having the ability for one unit to slide seamlessly through the next, becoming secure once the entire chain is complete.
The chain is continuous, so it is passed over the head to wear.
