Have you heard of Sugru? It’s this amazing self-setting rubber that comes in tonnes of amazing colours! Steve came home with large packet of it after a conference around 4 months ago. The first thing I though was…wow! I’ll bet that would be great for setting stones! And of course…it is! This particular necklace has a 2ct. mystic topaz set with sterling silver rings and square sterling wire.
I think I need to do a bit more tweaking, perhaps find some kind of sealing agent because it’s not impervious to marks from a fingernail, but as a jewellery material it is incredibly light, strong and feels great to touch! Can’t wait to design more! The possibilities are endless!
If anyone wants to buy this prototype (it’s signed and dated on the back as well) Shall we say £35 with sterling silver chain?
