How spectacular is this necklace?!! Fits all my criteria for a fabulous necklace…

1. Unique…this is definitely not your average ‘nameplate’ collier
2. CHUNKY…large and in charge thank you very much
3. Has a sentimental meaning behind it.

So this nugget of beauty was created by Sara Van Gameren for a young girl who was intrigued by her family tree. After research of her genealogical tree, this masterpiece was created. It was designed with the placement of her ancestors near her chest and her closer family nearer her neck. Van Gameren refers to this necklace as a “genetic palette”. I especially love the delicate piercing between the script of the letters and the negative spaces that are created throughout. Thoughts?
