Patinated silver decoration. Originally commissioned by the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, this decoration was carefully designed by cutting and scoring many models in card before it was transformed into metal, giving the final object the appearance of origami. The star itself also incorporates a cross at its centre, symbolising Christ.
Made by hand, folding a thin sheet of photo-etched sterling silver, with a two-tone patinated matt satin finish and brightly burnished edges. Delicately hung on a beautiful vintage gold thread.
