The Story behind
The Kala necklace came out of a study on succulent plants. The shapes of the leaves where simplified right down to their purest geometric forms.
The Kala necklace is made of double-folded sterling silver, with the inside/facing side housing a brushed surface and the outside holding a high polish creating a point of interest where the two are seen together.
