This sterling silver neckpiece by Amy Renshaw evokes the period of Greek legend, the time of laurel leaves and the three Graces; the Goddesses of Charm, Beauty and Creativity.

Pendant measures approx 3cm in diameter, charm 1.5cm in length, and chain approx 42cm in length.

Handcrafted in Victoria, Australia.

Amy Renshaw

My work concentrates on geometric shapes of crisp, clean, refined lines. Uncomplicated, simple forms, combined with asymmetrical detail or an element of something unexpected.

I am intrigued by the limitless possibilities of colour and its application in the creation of small precious objects. Integrating acrylic materials, with the durability, strength and beauty of gold and silver.

The pure whiteness of silver against vibrant red, or the warmth of yellow gold with opaques.

Recently my work has incorporated embossing techniques and relief work, that explore more ornate imagery. I intend this as a reference to something 'old worldly', antique or elusive to time or date.

Each piece is made with careful consideration and stems from a love of the materials and the joy of making.
