From the deep necklaces are inspired by the mysteries of the deep sea, it’s said that 95% of the ocean floor still hasn’t been explored. The copper used to make the necklaces is taken from an antique water tank, the patina has been developing for over 60 years, the untouched conditions make a beautiful deep green colour which is preserved by a lacquer. Libby’s design challenges our perceptions of preciousness, questioning how we value materials, Although the main material isn’t deemed valuable, the conditions and history of the copper are precious.
The necklace features a press formed piece of copper with a juxtaposing 3mm square silver bar.
The necklaces are made from patina copper, 925 silver and approximately 30 inch cord which can be adjusted to suit your preferred length cord.
The patina on the copper will vary from that in the pictures, it is my best interest to use the right piece of copper to suit your necklace.
