Counterpoint Necklace in Sterling Silver
2019 Saul Bell Design Award - Finalist in Silver Category
MADE TO ORDER | Requires 6-8 weeks production time
In music, counterpoint is the overlaying of independent rhythms and contours with the intention of creating harmony in their relationships. Inspired by this principle, this design composes four independent elements that interlock and work harmoniously together to create a dynamic visual rhythm in the final composition. The movement of each element was considered as the overall gesture dances with the body’s movement.
Designed meticulously in 3D software, this necklace was originally 3D-printed in nylon to take advantage of the ability to directly print interlocking pieces. This sterling silver piece is separated into 2 parts, cast using the lost-wax process, and after re-joining, hand-polished to a mirror finish.
