Birch necklace gold
The Story behind
The "BIRCH" necklace is part of the YUCCA collection, which plays with the relationship between lines and angles. The idea for the design of the BIRCH necklace came out of a process of abstracting the shapes found in succulent plants. By reducing the shapes down to their essential components, the result is a very clean cut and contemporary design, yet has its roots in the natural environment. The clear, simple design is the hallmark of this collection and make this necklace a special piece of jewellery that can be worn on any occasion. BIRCH necklace is the perfect piece to catch all the looks and receive a bunch of compliments.
