The SALM series was inspired by a German painting from the late fifteenth century of a woman wearing a necklace of gothic script. Through researching medieval Latin paleography texts, the abbreviation ‘SALM’ - which means health - was discovered, making these pieces a a talisman and token of well-being and good luck to the wearer. SALM is handmade from individually carved wax links which are cast into sterling silver and soldered and finished in Ridgewood.
