The U Chain series hangs with gravity and a sense of equilibrium, appearing lightly balanced on a fixed anchor point.
The Flipside Pendant, a reinterpretation of the traditional pendant, is a showstopper, featuring oversized discs suspended at an angle. Made from high-quality brass, the customizable Flipside can be arranged singularly or grouped in clusters, creating a dramatic effect.
