Sun Ray is a series of necklaces which we commissioned for the Contemporary Folkware exhibition from COOKED; a design collective who are focused on creating pieces inspired by historical designs that are produced ethically and which use recycled materials were possible.
The Sun Ray collection takes inspiration from the ancient Inca jewellery, in particular the sun ray neck pieces that were often made from solid gold and reflected their worship of Manco Capac the Sun God.
Hand made using vintage silks, cottons and braiding these necklaces are so easy to wear and just look stunning on a simple t-shirt or against sun-kissed skin. I just can't resist this type of easy elegance!
£75, available in the Exhibition Room.
