Hanwen Shen showed her collection of 'nape pieces' as part of the London College of Fashion MA Showtime Exhibition.
As a jeweller she has noted that there is a tendancy to focus on forward vision and the wearing of jewellery on the front of the body rather than the back. To challenge this she has created a collection of nape pieces in which the sinuous curves blur the distinction between front and back, neck and hair.
Shown left is; 24k gold collar neckpiece.
