White Twig Necklace

This White Twig Necklace is part of my new collection of long necklaces for SS2016. Every detail is handmade using natural materials. Following my signature bohemian style this necklace is particularly quirky as I’ve incorporated a small twig from my garden. Inspired by the yarn bombers I’ve painted it white and wrapped it with silk threads. I love asymmetrical designs and thought it would work well here to use two different complementary gemstones: amazonite and turquoise. Both are frosted matte so give a lovely soft feel to the piece. The lovely earthy colours and materials are just perfect for your tribal chic wardrobe this summer. Feminine and powerful this handmade necklace looks great with long maxi dresses or simple white tee and jeans.

    White Twig Necklace

    Inspired by the yarn-bombers, one day I took a small twig from my garden, painted it white and wrapped it with gold and turquoise silk threads. I thought how nice it would be to incorporate it into one of my necklaces. I decided to use it as a connector between two strands of different colored beads. So I hand-knotted two strands of my favourite gemstones: Amazonite and Turquoise (here they’ve been tumbled much like stones on a beach so they have a lovely matte finish) and the whole piece fell into place beautifully. I finished it with a handmade tassel using more silk threads, turquoise drops and verdigris patinated bronze beads. I love the quirky bohemian charm of this piece. I also love the fact it uses natural materials like wood and stone in much the same way a craftsperson would’ve used thousands of years ago. Like all long necklaces this is so perfect worn over a simple grey tee or with your favourite maxi summer dress.

    The necklace measures 90cm or 34 inches long and is finished with a bronze tone double hook catch, but actually the necklace is long enough to slip over your head so is very easy to wear.

    Comes beautifully gift wrapped with gift box and ribbon ready to gift or store.

    I’m Lisa Weir, an Irish jewellery designer based in Dublin, Ireland. I hand make jewellery that is intricate, precious and feels beautiful to wear. I love how jewellery can be serious or fun: a token gifted with love or a keepsake handed down through generations or else just something you put on to clinch that special outfit and make it look fabulous. Most of my pieces are limited edition or one-off designs so you can own a piece of jewellery that is as unique as you are.
