CIRCLE IN CIRCLE NECKLACE
San Francisco-based artist Vanessa Gade turns the interplay of pendant and chain into a dynamic sculptural statement. Inspired by her city's inherent dualism, marked by powerful its feats of engineering (like the Golden Gate Bridge) and its peaceful Southern Californian shorelines, Vanessa captures this rich and varied landscape in the motion and tension of her bold, kinetic pieces.
While in most necklaces, pendant and chain function independently, in Vanessa's jewelry, both pieces are integral to the form, function, and visual impact of the finished piece.
Fine chain glides freely through precisely drilled holes of a hand fabricated sterling silver circle creating an abstract pattern that is both fixed and flowing. Vanessa creates this stunning piece by interlacing a delicate, silver chain through both circles. Equal parts industrial and elegant, these interconnected elements glide gracefully with the wearer's movement giving the solid forms fluidity. The unique relationship between the different parts of Vanessa's piece emphasizes their dependency on each other in a romantic and beautiful way, evoking our deep connection and reliance on those who support us. Handmade in San Francisco, California.

It was Vanessa's passion for history and photography that initiated her path to jewelry design. While studying to become a historian at the University of California, San Diego she volunteered to help construct the new darkroom on campus, directly adjacent to the metalsmithing studio. Fascinated by the tools, stone, and molten metal, she wandered inside and never looked back. See all creations.
