This limestone-coloured (light grey) short necklace is made of four brass geometrical elements, covered and tied one to another with soft soutache nylon trimming braid. The length is adjustable thanks to the grosgrain ribbon and the two metal D-rings. This necklace is perfect worn with a shirt, as the weaved parts appear right under your collar edges, creating a strong graphic effect. All items are carefully handcrafted at Olgajeanne's studio in Marseilles, using premium quality materials. Your necklace will be packaged in a branded gift box along with a brand postcard. Please note that each item is identified with a serial number on its product label.

This collection introduces a new technique in Olgajeanne textile jewellery. Inspired by artist Nicolas Feldmeyer's piece named Woven Portico, as well as spaghetti furniture from the 50s and basketry techniques, the statement necklaces and bracelets draw strong geometrical shapes, based on a combination of various hardware elements. The sharpness of symmetry is well balanced by the softness of the soutache textured ribbon, used to link the metal pieces to one another. Sequences of fullness and emptiness are created, revealing the shine of brass underneath at some places.
