Inspiring: Tinctory

I think that I just might be in love with everyone of these pieces. Check out her shop

This necklace is like a wayward little watch. You can never be sure exactly how many hour markers are hiding between the pleats. It has only one hand and it serves as a toggle closing the chain. Despite or maybe because of this it is a fine instrument designed not to keep track of time but to make time slow down, inviting you to look closely and consider the moment.

It is made from silk dyed and overdyed slowly and gradually with several plants, pleated and smocked. The colour is a blend of brown and dark red with hints of yellow here and there. The moving hour markers and toggle are embellished with glass beads and all metal used is antiqued sterling silver.

The pendant is 4.5 cm (1 3/4 inches) in diameter and hangs on a 46 cm (18 inch) long chain.

As with all textiles, storing the necklace out of direct sunlight is recommended to keep it at its best.
