Helen Britton is an inveterate collector of materials from where ever she works and travels. Her studio is filled with nascent treasures from the banal to the exotic, ready to be transformed into unexpected jewelry compositions such as the molded plastic and silver in this elegant Coldstar Necklace, part of her “Dekorationswut” series (roughly translated as “decoration rage”).
