Celine César Project Compression Necklace in Sterling Silver

46W136STL.36SI

IN 1971,
CÉSAR STARTS TO APPLY HIS TECHNIQUE OF COMPRESSION TO THE MOST PRECIOUS METAL: GOLD.
HE COLLECTS BRACELETS, NECKLACES, CHAINS AND MEDALS FROM HIS FRIENDS AND FAMILY.
COMPRESSED, THESE FAMILY HEIRLOOMS TAKE ON A TOTEMIC FORM OF SENTIMENTAL VALUE.
THE RETRACTABLE HOOK ENABLES THE PENDANT TO BE REGARDED AS NOT ONLY A PIECE
OF JEWELLERY BUT ALSO A STAND-ALONE SCULPTURE.
THE COLLABORATION BETWEEN THE MAISON CELINE AND THE FONDATION CÉSAR OFFERS US THE OPPORTUNITY TO RECONNECT WITH THIS ARTISTIC JOURNEY VIA THE CREATION OF THIS LIMITED EDITION SERIES OF JEWELLERY PIECES IN SILVER AND VERMEIL, 100 PIECES NUMBERED FOR EACH MATERIAL. THE JEWELLERY IS PRESENTED IN A PINE BOX SIGNED BY THE ARTIST WITH A HOT IRON STAMP.
