Catalogue Note

‘There was always a balance in our work – between light and dark. This is one of the more romantic, frivolous pieces - taking a simple ribbon but scaling it up to create added drama. Crafting this piece was a joy because I could go back to my fine silversmithing skills which Lee so appreciated. The engraved selvedge edges were Lee's idea.’ S.L.

Created for Alexander McQueen's 'Deliverance' Collection, Spring/Summer 2004.
