Short Pettycur Enamel Necklace
Sterling silver, sea pebbles and muted tones of enamel are combined in this beautiful 18 inch oceanic necklace. Collected pebbles, shells and driftwood from the shore inform the composition, texture and colour of this necklace, and aims to offer a sense of calm and serenity. Pettycur is a bay close to Grace Girvan's home which is strewn with driftwood, pebbles and cockle shells.
Grace Girvan was born and brought up in Orkney. She moved to Edinburgh in the late nineties to study jewellery and silversmithing at Edinburgh College of Art, and now lives and works on the coast in Fife. Collecting and studying objects found on the shoreline is the starting point in Grace's creative process. The objects inform the colours, textures and compositions of the jewellery. Pebbles are combined with silver and enamel to create beautiful, distinctive jewellery. The use of subtle, translucent enamels depict the sun bleached colours observed on the shoreline.
