Shop News: Synergy Collection Bestseller

Well, it has been a while since the first creations called ‘Synergy’ hit the shop’s front window. To remind, the concept of Synergy is coalescence of two or more metals. To join their colors, shines and strengths, to bind them all together, craving for perfection that cannot be achieved individually. There has been a lots of inspiration and more models followed – and they still keep coming. But one of them almost immediately stood out and became a true bestseller.

It is a set, actually, a bracelet and a necklace made of three really thin wires of raw brass, raw copper and silver tone by an ancient technique of Viking knitting. The wires are so thin that you can see three different colors only when you approach really close. From a normal distance it gives an impression of a remarkable tube chain filigree work with colorful and vivid reflections.

Of course, the possibility to buy both for a special price instead separately for regular certainly contributed its popularity.

New Collection: Synergy

Well, this wasn’t really a planned line of products.

You know, I usually have a list of items that I plan to make and I’m usually sticking to it. Occassionally, I drift towards some new and fresh idea that I cannot resist, but it has always been just one piece, so it doesn’t disturb my plans much.

In this case, a whole new collection emerged from my mind, uncontrollably, unstoppably. So I put on hold all my lists and focused on this sudden inspiration.

Keywords are synergy, unison, togetherness, cohesion, unity.
The essence of the concept is coalescence of two or more materials to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects.

The collection is based on mixing silver tone, raw copper and raw brass wires, but I plan to add some colored wires to these main tones.

I here present you the first pieces of Synergy!

This is a necklace and a bracelet set, made of two really thin wires of raw brass and copper using an ancient technique of Viking knitting. The wires are so thin that you can see two different colors only when you approach really close. From a normal distance it gives an impression of a remarkable rose gold filigree work. So intriguing that it lures you to take a closer look. Very feminine, very delicate.

Wrapped in chainmaille

There are so many weaves in chainmaille that make beautiful jewelry pieces. Precisely, many weaves are actually invented to be decorative, so it’s kinda easy to make gorgeus jewelry of them.

I suppose that is why I am the most inspired by classic functional chainmaille mesh, like this one. This is the most common chainmaille weave, known as Euro 4-1. This is what you will see in museums, pictures in history books or in history movies. A classic armor weave for hauberks, coifs or gauntlets. Making a jewelry piece out of it really excites me.

Necklace Euro 4-1

 

You wouldn’t believe it, but chainmaille mesh is like silk. It’s gentle on your skin, it flows around your neck and whrists, it moves with you like the finest fabric. Pay attention to drapes and wrinkles of this necklace. So beautiful, isn’t it?

I’ll leave you to the pictures.
