The neck of the bottle, on the neck of the person... these oddly familiar shapes are cut from the necks of glass bottles that have been sourced from the waste stream.
They're sliced, ground, sandblasted and tumble polished into a shimmery gloss, or left more matt to show their form.
Slices of Seaglass... Glass Vertebrae... Bottlenecks... to me they look like the opening of a throat, speaking truth from the deep; or a sea-worn fish vertebrae like you'd find on the beach after a storm.
Every one is handmade in Brendon Jaine's backyard workshop, in Invercargill, New Zealand.
They all come with an adjustable length waxed nylon cord, and one of Brendon's handmade copper and brass catches.
