So honored to be asked to create a handmade necklace for this wonderful organization to be gifted to the outgoing board president using the logo as inspiration.
When I look at this logo, I see lots of movement - it's a really dynamic looking image, so the finished silver necklace needed to reflect that sense of movement. The primary metal I use in my jewelry is sterling silver and that was my choice for this piece. I also noticed that the ovals in the logo were of different sizes, reinforcing the sense of movement.
For the final design, I created ovals of various sizes and lightly hammered them to reflect the light and enhance the feeling of movement. Each silver oval hangs freely from the small handmade silver chain that holds everything in place. Lots of movement!
I just got word that those who ordered this silver link necklace love the design!
Don't you love it when you work hard at something and it all works out? Best. Feeling. Ever.
