Winner - John Moore
Diamond Verto Necklace
Winner of The Goldsmiths’ Company Award 2016, artist John Moore, is known for his distinctive designs with fluid movement and use of colour. Materials including anodised aluminium, silver, steel, wood, silicone and gold, are engineered to create unique specimens. Clever use of a silicon cord enables the individual discs to take their place in the composition of the necklace without losing their flexibility in relation to each other. The technical execution ensures a controlled movement, giving the wearer the opportunity to interact with the piece, without losing the makers visual and conceptual intention.
