The lux curves neck takes a familiar shape, the arabesque, found in everything from our keyboards to classical sign painting, to decorations from around the world. The pair of curves that come together, mirroring each other as they dance together and away from one another are such a simple beauty to behold, and people often see natural forms like bird wings or whale tales in this piece.
The forms are hand made from sterling silver sheet metal, cut into the correct pattern with a tiny hand saw, and hammered over forming stakes with specialty hammers in a process called anticlastic raising.
This piece is great for layering with other looks and necklaces or for making a simple but elegant statement.
The silver is textured, oxidized, and tumbler polished to create a darker silvery sheen that looks better the more you wear it.
This necklace is offered in two lengths and two sizes but if you would like something different just message me! As well, the necklace comes with a handmade hook and eye clasp, but let me know on the checkout page in the notes if you prefer a machine made lobster claw.

Hand made from recycled sterling silver in a Nicasio, CA studio.
