Essentia - Palladium Vision

The Palladium Jewelry Design Competition is a unique collaboration between the International Palladium Board and Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. Students from the MA Design Furniture, Ceramic and Jewellery course have been challenged to design concepts using palladium. The creations showcase the metal’s inherent properties of lightness and strength. Five exceptional finalists’ pieces were displayed at the BFC Rock Vault  during London Fashion Week 2012

The neckpiece made from Palladium and inspired by a fictional character; Amber Johnson, a 30 years old passionate paleontologist who lives in Los angeles. As a young promising paleontologist, her job made her life adventurous, traveling from her hometown famous fossil site - La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles to the cold Gobi dessert in asia.
