Jewel of the day: Maria Black Wing Necklace
Danish designer Maria Black has a sleek, clean aesthetic that is perfect for the person who likes their jewellery to be unfussy. This necklace has a bit more going on than most of her designs, and uses a wing (looks like a bat wing to me) as its inspiration. Her “about” page notes, “Maria Black Jewellery is founded on the pure idea of combining aesthetics and artistry. Allowing contemporary fashion jewellery to emphasize the everyday look of modern women, and to challenge the common perception of body adornment. Patterns and shapes sculpted of precious metals define each collection. Maria Black creates each collection with an underlying expression of her passions and experiences, so every collection owns a feeling or personality and becomes a complete story. Two halves becomes one unit, triangles appear in triplicate, skinny rings and stacking makes delicate fragments, strong statements and earrings requiring only one piercing create the unexpected illusion of multiple piercings. Maria’s designs are intended to encourage individual creative freedom.”
This necklace is made with oxidized sterling silver on an adjustable chain measuring 44/47 cm. This sells for €107.
