Symbol Necklaces

It was whilst studying the forms and talisman used in the tribal jewellery of Africa that I came across an abstracted symbol of a female figure. It originated from the nomadic Tuareg of North Africa. I worked with this symbol and developed others that would relate to it in size and form. These I then used in combinations to form a variety of necklaces and drop style earrings. The flat areas of the symbols are planished to give them a slightly convex form and impart surface interest to the metal. They can be produced in silver or gold with the option of round or roundel style beads in: Agate, Lapis lazuli, fresh water pearl, Garnet, Turquoise and numerous other semi-precious stones. There are a number of Symbol Earrings to compliment these necklaces.
