Torchon Lace Pendant
Torchon lace is worked by hand and set into a teardrop pendant. Feminine, subtle, strong, original.
Each pendant is hand worked Torchon lace in either fine silver or fine gold wire. The fine wire I use is either 0.2mm or 0.25mm, which allows me to manipulate hard metal with a time honoured traditional textile technique. It is said that fishermen, thousands of years ago, were the first to develop the skills of interweaving threads whilst making their nets. And now in the 21st century, from those humble beginnings, I make Torchon lace in solid precious metals. The open nature of lace work allows me to create larger pieces that remain comfortable and light to wear. Each hand worked torchon lace panel is set within a sterling silver or 18ct gold frame, helping to hold the lace under tension and giving the piece strength. Lace jewellery brings a touch of luxe to our daily lives.
Pendants are one of those wardrobe staples we reach for again and again. The Torchon Lace Pendant is an unusual choice, that remains delicately beautiful. A fallen Autumn leaf that settles in your breast, sparkling in the sunshine as it hangs from a fine trace chain. The fine silver and fine gold used to work the lace reflects light, making the twisted fine wires glisten.
Material: Sterling silver, fine silver lace work. 18ct gold vermeil or solid 18ct gold.
Dimensions: 17"/43cm chain, 2.3 x 1.8cm teardrop pendant.
If you prefer a set, wear this with the Torchon Lace Studs.
The Torchon Lace Collection also makes an excellent choice for the contemporary bride. As the collection mixes and matches easily the whole bridal party can co-ordinate, without being the same. Perhaps the bride herself has chosen the statement Torchon Continuous Lace Necklace, and gifts these earrings to each of her bridesmaids. Available in silver or gold, there's a pair to suit each personality. Perhaps the mother of the bride can choose the solid gold, because, well, she's Mum. Not forgetting the groomsmen, a subtle variation on the theme gives them each Lace Embossed Cufflinks as a memento of the wedding day.
