Hand engraved acrylic and glass cabochon necklace. Designed and made to order in our Sydney studio.
Every acrylic piece is hand engraved with a flower and Sun pattern. They are then hand drilled to allow the gold-filled chain to be strung through ever piece.
Once the acrylic pieces are chained together a glass cabochon handmade in our Sydney studio is placed at the centre of the acrylic.
The glass cabochons are set using a specially developed system inspired by the stone setting technique "bezel setting". The pressure created by the acrylic holds the glass in place, without the use of glue or any other material.
The necklace uses a lobster clasp at the back and can be adjusted for different lengths.
The end acrylic piece is laser engraved with JOAO VAZ.
