Rothlú Thymian Batik Textile Necklace
Rothlú Thymian Batik Textile Necklace in ice blue, silver and aubergine.
This statement necklace is a one-of-a-kind in Rothlú's own batik surface patterned textile in textured blue and off-white. It has a silver and aubergine sgraffito recessed panel in the middle. It's finished in high gloss coating and is pleather backed (so it's lovely and soft!). The chain is silver plated nickel free and measures 56cm in total length, and the pendant measures 7cm in width and 9cm in length.
Handmade in Ireland
Rothlú pieces are made and designed by visual artist/maker Frances McGonigle in small bespoke quantities at her Ox Mountain studio in rural Mayo, Ireland. The Ox are low pre-ice age mountains with a wealth of megalithic tombs and wonderfully diverse landscape formations, textures and flora, all of which influence the patterning and dyeing that forms the basis of Rothlú's textile jewellery.
The processes, contemporary batik and shibori techniques, result in super-lightweight lusciously hued jewellery that is modern, unique and beautiful.
Rothlú only use remnant material, some of which is recent waste off-cuts/dead-stock, some of which is older much-used and repaired linens/cottons and silk. And finish their pieces using eco pine resin. All packaging is recycled/recyclable. Their aim is to be as sustainable in their making as possible.
