In September 2010 I designed some wood and cork prototype necklaces to go with my Freehand fashion collection. This summer I finally had time to create more of them, moving on from the prototype stage.

All the details of those necklaces are hand cut, sanded and painted with acrylics in beautiful pastel shades.

The design of the necklaces was inspired by the British artist Ben Nicholson.
