Taking inspiration from oceanic aragonite structures, planetary space, crystal formations, spiderwebs, and the concept of making the abstractly invisible visible, Shadowplay embodies the spirit of all things mystical.

“Sea Tiger”

With the desire to create beautiful, one of a kind, hand-crafted pieces with consciousness to materials and their origin in mind, Shadowplay is made of natural, organic and naturally dyed yarns.

+ Swarovski Elements
+ Certified Fair Trade black silver closures.


Each necklace remains true to its shape, but with a lightness that is

found in modern clothing, these amorphous pieces take their own form

and gesture through their lifespan.
