Maker's statement

This necklace was made at a point when I had often used a figurative and narrative sequence particularly in the 3-pendant necklaces and in earrings. It was the first time I had used a purely formal sequence, and thus also the first time the shape of each pendant was not repetitive.

Susanna Heron, 6 October 1976
