Coloring Look

When it came to her accessories, she liked to draw inspiration from blissful days of doodling. To make this playful yet polished necklace, Amy Pfaffman revives pencils that are all colored out by stringing segments together on a sterling silver chain. She connects nine snippets in an eye-catching palette that recalls the rainbow's colorful arc. Handmade in California.

Amy knew she was a designer when instead of playing with dolls in her dollhouse as a kid, she mostly focused on decorating the interior. Check out our Q&A with her on the blog.

“I love that I get to use my creativity to make things other people can use and enjoy, work from home in my studio with an amazing view and three kitty cats, and meet incredible people when I do shows.”

Amy Pfaffman's degree in industrial design from Rhode Island School of Design in 1990 cemented her appreciation for functional objects. In her jewelry she elevates functional objects to art using cold connections and mechanical joints paired with sterling silver. As jewelry, the ordinary becomes ornament, and we look at it in an entirely different way. She hopes to inspire others to appreciate the beauty in the things they use every day and know that great thought was put into their design.

    I purchased this for my mother who is a colored pencil artist. She was so moved by the incorporation of her favorite artist's tool. It looked beautiful omg her and will compliment any outfit. It was excellent quality and gave us a very special moment.

      Love how unique the necklace is, however the colors of mine are muted. I was anticipating my necklace would include the same bright colors of the closeup and did not anticipate the colors would vary, although I am keeping it because the idea is creative.

      Like it overall. Good quality. Pretty. I wish the chain was just slightly longer. But, overall, a very nice product. Unique. Good conversation starter. Never seen anything else like it.
