Rolled Patterned Textile Necklace
Multi-patterned textile necklace by Cecile Bertrand, made with rolled vintage cravats.
About the MakerCecile Bertrand was born in Paris and has lived in Brussels for the past twenty-five years. Cecile began her researcg into textile jewellery in 2005, making a long necklace from silk ties. Her interest in textiles in general, and prints in particular, led her to recycling old fabrics, ties, dresses and silk scarves and she is a keen collector of vintage fabrics. All textures are of interest to Cecile - a fibre can dictate a shape or a technique. A self-taught maker, she is currently exploring how to adapt the motifs found in textile prints into jewellery, and she has a particular fondness for tourist scarves with their figurative scenes and geometric motifs. Her printed silk necklaces are often unique pieces, full of joie de vivre and great fun to wear.
Please note that due to the handmade and one-off nature of this necklace the patterns vary slightly.
