This necklace is part of the “Espíritu de la tierra” (Spirit of the Earth) collection. It is made with 925 silver and brass with a matte finish. It consists of two tubes that surround the circle where the leather cord (with silver ends) passes through like a yo-yo. Every piece of this collection is unique and hand crafted by the designers. Brass will quickly age with use and acquire a nice antique look. If you wish to achieve a shiny gold colour, you can use a jewellery polishing pad; the fine silver stays bright and shiny.
A poem named 'Faust' by Goethe was a true inspiration for this collection. Faust tries an integration with nature, the reconciliation: "Birth and the grave A limitless ocean, A constant weaving With change still rife, A restless heaving, A glowing life— Thus time's whirring loom unceasing I ply, And weave the life-garment of deity." (Faust by Goethe). The idea of this collection is the embracing of dead nature. By treasuring the inevitable cycle of nature in all its forms, we aim to represent the divinity of the story behind a once living creature. Combining bones with the whimsical beauty of metals transforms dead nature into a divine treasure.
