09/2010 BIG TREE is a collaboration with jeweller Melissa Hunt.
It comprises a range of nine individually hand pierced silver charms presented in a bucolic countryside scene.
The range of silver charms designed by Melissa Hunt consists of nine separate creatures that are set in an
illustrated tree and meadow designed by Tommy Penton. Melissa handcuts the silhouette of each character
in silver, which are then returned into the illustration. This collaboration results in a beautifully designed card that
contains high quality jewellery to be worn by both men and women.
The 0.7mm thick polished sterling silver discs are 3cm in diameter and suspended from 3.5cm of
1mm box chain with a connecting T-bar clasp. This versatile fastener enables the pieces to be worn
as a necklace, bracelet, dog tag or button hole.
These ready-made bespoke gifts are packaged with an envelope and clear sleeve.
BIG TREE can be seen at Origin London Craft Fair 23-29 09/2010 at Old Spitalfields Market.
Also at the Barbican Library 02-23 12/2010 [ private view tobe announced ].
