Designer Genes by Christine Sadler
Designer Genes is a playful name for this collection of jewellery that is inspired by the double helix. The discovery and decoding of DNA has been perhaps the most important biological work of the last 100 years and it has revealed fascinating facts about our relationships with our immediate family and ancestors. It wasn't a symbol for family until our generation and that makes a gift from this collection extra special.
Our DNA is not visible to the naked eye, just like our family bond but we know that it is there. The beautiful twisted ladder shape of the structure of the double helix in these designs is an elegant way to bring to life this invisible bond.
This necklace features a double helix link in 9ct yellow gold on a 9ct yellow gold filed curb chain. This filed curb chain is incredibly strong and yet delicate, ensuring it doesn't detract from the simple elegance of the pendant.
The pendant is 26mm long and it hangs on a 45cm long chain.
