The story behind
The idea for the Eche necklace came out of a research of succulent plants. The lines of the Eche necklace follow the contours of the leaves on the plants. Eche makes for a nice statement piece when it's worn with a plain solid coloured item of clothing such as a navy or black dress or top.
Two silver wires as an abstraction of a natural shape, organically linked to a delicate silver chain.
