It started when I was experimenting with enamel colours. You can just test them out on flat strips of copper, but that’s a bit dull isn’t it? So I cut out some moustaches and hammered them until they had a flowing, bushy shape. The colour I liked best was this one, apricot, which works perfectly with the blackened, oxidised edges. It was far too lovely to hide away in a box of bits and pieces, it had to be given a purpose.
If you can’t laugh in life, then what’s the point? This necklace is for laughing. I cut out a little stick, which I oxidised the match the blackened edges of the moustache, then I added two tiny rivets, one to attach the moustache to the stick and one to hold the moustache in a horizontal position when you need to use it. If you are having a non-moustache moment, you can fold it up and it hangs from the blackened chain vertically.
