Miss Daytona Necklace
18ct yellow gold vermeil, brass, acrylic and dyed jade chain necklace
This one-of-a-kind, hot pink necklace is the perfect accessory come summer or winter. In the hotter months of the year we would pair this acrylic and jade beauty with a white shirt and denim shorts or a bold, colour-blocking dress. In autumn, it would be all about rich fabrics and jewel tones, matching the Miss Daytona Necklace with velvets and russets to really bring out the colour and design of this unique piece.
This colourful bead necklace forms part of our Plastic Fantastic jewellery collection, where the material plastic sits centre stage. Set in 1950s Florida, the collection explores how mid-century America saw a plastic boom as home industries battled to meet an ever-expanding demand for consumer goods, including costume jewellery. Plastic became a really popular material to work with as it was considered novel and free from pre-conceptions regarding its use.
Whilst plastic is not commonly associated with fine jewellery, we hope to show that this material can be used in sustainable and innovative ways by up-cycling old plastic mounts or links to create beautiful, timeless jewels.
