Necklaces

Christopher has a variety of necklaces in his portfolio and is also  happy to consider any ideas which you may have in mind - one of the most popular items here is the hallmarked pendant, which was designed by a client as presents for her bridesmaids.

Simple Pendants

Each of these pendants comes with a 1.2mm wide silver snake chain as standard. However, Christopher can also supply these pendants with a 3mm torque or a 1.5mm springy necklet (click here to see examples).

4 Leaf Pendant

The first of these was made by Christopher to improve his very delicate soldering technique and use up some of his smaller silver titbits. Luckily it proved quite popular.

More Eye Catching Pieces

The design and construction of each of these has drawn on a broader base of jewellery and sliversmithing techniques than Christopher's pendant range, and the pieces reflect this in the way that their disparate parts work together as a whole.

Concrete Necklace

A piece of industrial design, using concrete as the stone anchored within the silver collets (see detail). To keep the necklace shape, silver tube is used as spacers on a non-silver chain. A sister piece to Christopher's Concrete Cufflinks.
Can be made with varying numbers of squares, or they can be made in different shapes (pendant, star, etc).

Linked Chain

Each segment of this necklace has a cusped surface and acts as a link in the chain. The result is a formal piece which sits well and reflects beautifully.
Different link shapes and sizes will be considered
