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 clever necklace can be worn in two different ways which is ideal for wearing with different necklines of tops or dresses. You can slide the chain through the gold link making it into a long drop or slide it though the centre loop making it into a stacking double pendant. One link is sterling silver and the other is solid 9ct yellow gold, it is not plated. Each link in the designer genes collection is 26mm long.
This necklace can come in all silver or with rose gold and can also have additional helix links.
The sterling silver snake chain is 1.6mm wide and is 45cm long.
The total length of the drop of the pendant at its longest is approxmiately 50mm.
