David Hamilton: Wood Chip Necklace
A uniquely cast piece, the Woodchip Necklace features one of five sterling silver chips and comes with a delicate silver chain. The original woodchips were moulded in silicon rubber and cast using the lost wax process with solid 925 sterling silver. The Tasmanian sterling silver woodchip jewellery pieces become the crystallised memory of a forest giant, both a fragment of a tree and a fragment of the Tasmanian landscape.
Each piece comes beautifully boxed with a cleaning cloth.
Materials: Sterling Silver.
Dimensions: 27mm | 23mm | 210mm chain length, approximately.

“Giant trees felled become a mountain of wood chips at Long Reach in Tasmania. From the millions, this wood chip is remembered in sterling silver.” - David Hamilton
