A shimmering segment necklace, skillfully imprinted in sterling silver with a lace imprint, finished with a sterling silver chain and clasp.
A captivating slice of metal which brings attention to its surface pattern and the hand beaten and etched materiality of the metals. As like other pieces in this contemporary range the Segment is an easy to wear necklace for any occasion and is enhanced beautifully when layered with other pieces in this range.
The lace imprint is cleverly created using a technical process involving the precise heating of the metal followed by a stage of careful pressure resulting in the actual piece of fabric being imprinted into the solid metal. Therefore no two pieces are ever the same.
Measurements: Segment 3cm across
Chain: 40cm sterling silver
This piece lies flat against the chest and like many of Tania Mallow's other pieces this necklace is created with comfort and quality at the forefront.
“I love it when I put the final finishing touches to a piece of jewellery such as the final polish. Seeing a piece come to fruition from an idea scribbled on a scrap of paper to forming it and finishing it is a really cool process”
Tania Mallow has had a passion for jewellery ever since the age of nine and set up her own jewellery business back in 2006. Prior to this she worked at Howick Village Jewellers where she learnt traditional jewellery making skills. Tania works out of her home studio situated in Beachlands, Auckland where each piece of jewellery is carefully handcrafted to perfection. Her work is particularly inspired by the shapes and textures of New Zealand nature and she introduces these elements into each of her designs.
“I actually love the challenge of productivity! Its really cool to see all my creations lined up at the end of a hard days work at the bench (and coffee is good too!) My biggest challenges with sustaining a creative practice have been juggling the marketing, accounts, design and production in a limited time frame alongside full time work. Knowing that people are out there in the world wearing my jewellery is amazing and very humbling! It gives me such a buzz when I meet a random stranger and notice that they are wearing one of my creations, blows me away every time”
