Sterling silver KARMA necklace
Sterling silver KARMA necklace. Fun & minimal.
The circle measures around 2,5 cm and is attached to the chain with two oversized links.
We make these with either 17''/ 43 cm or 22''/ 52 cm.
What does it mean when you say handmade?
We make over 80% of our jewellery by hand from silver or gold wire, sheet or grain that we re-shape, melt, hammer and solder to create our designs. We sometimes use a company that makes moulds and cast some of our pieces for us- this is really a case only for a few of our designs. We do this to save time and keep our jewellery affordable. We have only a tiny workshop and buying equipment that would allow us to do this is beyond our budget.
We like to make jewellery in the old fashion way- with a saw, few hammers and files.... because we are a little bit crazy and also because we like to perfect our skills.
It does not mean that we don’t like technology, though. In fact, we are suckers for innovation and are very excited to try new things. The thing is that we like to keep Juna the way it is, handmade, perfectly imperfect with a story and loads of love put into each piece.
Mass producing is not our style and we may be introducing new techniques with time but we do not want to overdo it.
Do you make your make the chains by hand?
Sometimes, we feel like making some chains ourselves. You will see it straight away because the chain is unusual, thicker than other and very expensive.
Most chains today are made using elaborate machines, that allow for a lightweight but durable product. We buy ours from two places- Curteis, a British manufacturer known for excellent quality or a small Czech company that makes super shiny, sturdy belcher for our bracelets or Eye necklaces.
