Santa Rosa Necklace
18ct yellow gold vermeil, vintage plastic, brass and white agate necklace
This one-of-a-kind, blue and white necklace is the perfect accessory come summer or winter. In the hotter months of the year we would pair this vintage acrylic and agate beauty with a white t-shirt or a bold, colour-blocking dress. It would also look fab layered over a floaty kaftan. In autumn, it would be all about tailored shirts and dark denim, matching the Santa Rosa Necklace with navies and royal blues to 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.
