Aroha Silhouettes Soma Magazine 2011 Press Aggregate Necklace Vinyl Record Black
'Reincarnation proves true in Aroha Silhouettes’ reclaimed vinyl jewelry collection. Vancouver-based designer Tania Hennessy reimagines the beloved analog form into geometric charms that play heavily on positive and negative space. À la Escher, the Aggregate Vinyl Record Necklace features a two-dimensional triangular stack of cubes that allow the skin to peek through each crisp, hand-cut shape. The Small or Large Full Moon Necklace however pays higher homage to the LP, though subtly still. The disc charms highlight the uniqueness found in each of Hennessy’s pieces with more prominence-fetching arcs in a mix of widths and depths, as is innate to the grooves of each vinyl record, with a tinge of celestial whimsy.'
