Dear Viv, what an inspiring lady you are. You were there for me when I was studying and supported my gentle foray into jewellery design….this piece was made for you in what I think of as your colours… a small juxtaposition of the old and new… something I am beginning to play with. All the best xx

Notes for using/wearing: This necklace is intentionally open, showing all the workings. There are two domes which clip together as a switch to turn on the light. When pulling them apart I would suggest doing it very carefully as the conductive thread (and the felt) are not super strong (well, the thread is, but it may not hold its stitches very well)
