This one-off SketchBox necklace is made of thirteen separate elements plus a tiny SketchBox catch that sits flat at the back of the neck. The SketchBox elements sit on silver Venetian box chain oxidised black so that it is visually recessive.
Each element is hammered with stones and the edges burnished to a high shine. Using a Korean technique called Keum Bo, 23.5ct gold foil is fused to the surface of the fine silver making a permanent molecular bond. Oxidising solution is hand-painted to create the black areas that give the illusion of the third dimension.
