From the Jazz-era slang; "For when you're ready to paint the town, hip to the jive!"
In this series of pendants, rings and ear studs from Typography, the Latin alphabet has been taken and combined with Jazz Age motifs to create pieces that could be chosen as much for for the initials they represent as for the shape they form. Words from flapper slang forms these word necklaces.
This piece is designed in London, handcrafted using traditional lost wax casting, and hallmarked by the London Assay Office.
MATERIALS & CARE
This necklace comes in polished Sterling Silver with vermeil details. If you would prefer oxidised silver, or any other metal, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The chain and pendant are both solid Sterling Silver, Sterling Silver can become tarnished over time. If this happens, the most simple way to restore the necklace is to use Silver Dip. The 24ct gold plating is three microns thick but over time it may begin to fade with wear and it should not be polished too often. Always remove your jewellery for sports or when using harsh chemicals. Please read my guide to jewellery care to ensure it lasts for many years.
Made in Thailand by skilled and trusted craftspeople. The chain is made in the UK.
