Part 2 of our Holiday collaboration: Alison used a natural color tussah silk slub to create two of her favorite necklaces exclusively for us. Each necklace is available in yellow bronze with a khaki tussah hand-crocheted cord. Adjustable necklaces are about 23″ long and are slipped over your head. The length can then be adjusted by pulling on the dangling charm cord, they can be the same or mismatched depending on your style.
Lena Lake has an additional tussah silk tassel around the loop. Three Lakes has these beautiful, asymmetrical charms to adjust. Both styles are delicate yet durable to be worn daily. We simply love these!
A note from Alison:
Strong, decorative, durable and natural – this is a piece of jewelry that is meant to be worn every day.
Cast by hand out of recycled metal, each charm is inspired by the organic shapes found in nature. The form, variation, feel and energy of each piece is intentionally raw and imperfect. The patina will change with time and wear, but can always be restored to its original shine if that suits your style.
And while there is a delicacy to the crocheted cord, it is not fragile. Silk is hooked together and strengthened with knots, invisible stitching, and added reinforcement at the clasp. This ensures that your necklace will survive daily wear through workouts, showers, body oils, and sleep.
This collection reflects my deep relationship with handwork and nature, and my effort to find balance between rugged strength and delicate beauty.
