Baroque Armour Collar Necklace
My Baroque Armour Necklace, inspired by antique lace and ruffs, was designed to add a sense of luxurious drama to any outfit with its scale and ornate theatricality.
Collar piece - w 190 mm
Chain - l 435mm x w 80 mm x d 1.5 mm
This necklace definitely has a very Baroque theatricality as well as a delicate intricacy. My inspiration was antique lace, used as ruffs or cuffs to add a touch of drama to outfits some 500 years ago! I like the mix of open and closed shapes and the different sizes, which echo the way lace looks when it is arranged layer over layer.
