Swizzel Necklace with Sprinkles
Sterling Silver, porcelain and semi-precious stones. Length 24″.
Oversized Swizzel pendants are inspired by the two tone lollies of the same name in chalky dual colours. These pieces evoke a playful sense of nostalgia, and their touchably smooth forms beg to be licked. Their scale seems to challenge their own wearability, and questions where an object ceases to be functional and becomes sculptural. They are however deceptively light, and therefore quite wearable, and so perform both functions with a satisfying duality of purpose. A sense of nostalgia is emphasised by a play on scale; these oversized pieces of jewellery make the wearer remember feeling small, like a child dwarfed by grown up jewellery that doesn’t fit their diminutive scale.
