Theodora Multifunctional Necklace by Frida Hulten

Home > Winners > #59149


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Theodora

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Multifunctional Necklace

INSPIRATION:
To best describe my inspiration I would say it has a Byzantine body, an African heart and a Native American spirit. I wanted to create a necklace that could be worn back to front.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This necklace can be worn back to front. I wanted the wearer to be able to enjoy two quite different looks. I tried to carefully consider all parts of the neck and torso, especially the back.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The necklace can simply be worn back to front for two different looks.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This piece was created in Stockholm during January 2016.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Made by my hands using; Lapis Lazuli, Glass Beads, Swarovski, Turquoise, Brass Beads, Antique Copper Chain, Antique Brass Chain, Brass Ring and a Gold-plated Feather. This piece took me 21 hours to complete. I created it on top of a polystyrene torso so that my design can drape around the neck and follow the curves.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Measures 42cm around the neck. 4-5cm wide on the sides. The shorter front is 21cm long. The longer front is 35cm long.

TAGS:
Lapis Lazuli, bespoke adornment, handmade jewellery, handmade jewelry, wearable art, 2-in-1 necklace, semiprecious stones

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Theodora was a strong powerful Woman, an Empress of the Byzantine Empire and wife to Justinian I who reigned 527–565. I chose to use the semiprecious stone Lapis Lazuli as it is an ancient favorite by especially the Egyptian Kings and Queens.

CHALLENGE:
This piece was not only difficult to make because of detailed construction and hours spent. I had to also consider the curves around the neck, so that the piece falls, sits and drapes perfectly.
