Fantastic sterling silver large oval and circles necklace by one of London's up and coming boutique designers. The necklace inspired by a 1960's chain, is elegant in design and features her unique Easy Clasp. One of the oval rings has an overlapping section that separates when needing to adjoin the necklace together. Overall the necklace is in exceptional condition and has been professionally polished and looks practically new. You can also purchase the matching bracelet from her website to extend the length of the necklace or just to have a matching set.

From the Michele's website:

I am constantly in search of textures and shapes in the world around me. Whether it is rusting and twisted bits of metal in the road or pebbles along the seaside, these objects become my treasures and inspiration. Organic motifs become bold, graphic shapes in a collage of contrasting textures and forms. Silver wire is drawn into abstract silhouettes within chains, which develop into asymmetrical patterns repeated throughout my work. I translate the surfaces and shapes created by the ravages of time into bold and simple forms in precious metals and gemstones.
My designs begin with abstract drawings, paper constructions, looking at found objects and manipulation of metal pieces. Hand-carved pieces of wax evolve into silver or gold rings that are miniature sculptures worn on the body, sensuous to the touch. I work in metal, reacting to the beauty of the materials, shapes and textures. By embracing this technique, I find little surprises that develop into more complex pieces. Other times, I abandon the piece on my bench, only to find it later and incorporate it into another metal collage. Some of these discoveries become part of my repertoire; occasionally they can't be replicated. As I finish each piece, I want to ensure it maintain its handmade appearance.
I think about how my pieces can be worn in a number of different ways. Pendants double as rings, bangles become elements in necklaces and clasps are featured focal points. As I work, I ask myself, "How can this be worn a different way?" My clients respond to the sensuous nature of the organic shapes and textures, often choosing to wear them daily.
