Pipe + Frame Necklace
Architectural design meets industrial design meets modern wearable fine art. An incredibly beautiful statement piece.
Hand-cut and drilled oak wood bars are linked together with hand-formed and soldered 14k gold filled rings, then connected with solid brass tubing. The pendant is suspended by light sand colored clon cord. A 14k gold filled magnetic closure which uses a strong rare earth (neodymium) magnet is used for ease in putting on and taking off.
Necklace measures 18.5”; Pendant measures 4”w x 3”h
Every industrial metal element is coated by hand with a jewelry grade sealer to prevent interaction with your skin or discoloration/oxidization. These metals may slightly patina naturally over time, and that process is intentional. Highlighting these metals is a key feature in the Makerware line and allows each piece to be truly unique.
Using raw materials and a minimalist aesthetic, each piece is handmade by Ashley Nardone of MAKERWARE and DUOFAB (visual design) in Lake Worth, Florida. Ashley’s design focus with Makerware is to take unconventional materials and reinvent them as wearable, everyday objects
