This quirky, unusual necklace features my unique rolling ‘Diablo’ mechanism, allowing the silver discs to roll and spin freely along the sterling silver frame.
Handmade in my studio using traditional silversmithing techniques, the pendant frame is constructed from sterling silver then finished to a soft polish. The ‘diablo’ mechanism is formed from two silver discs sliced across the diagonal into semi circles to enhance the movement as the disc spins across the frame. The uppermost disc is bezel set in the centre with a 2.5mm brilliant cut Ruby. The discs are then polished to a high shine finish and the ‘Diablo’ riveted securely through the centre.
The ‘Diablo’ discs are 8mm in diameter and approx. 1mm deep each. The overall pendant length is approximately 30mm (1.25 inches), and it is 6mm deep. The pendant is suspended from a heavyweight 40cm Sterling Silver snake chain which fastens with a trigger clasp.
Matching stud earrings are also available in my shop.
Hallmarked with my own maker’s mark at the London Assay Office and presented in a Claire Wood Designer Jeweller gift box.

I've always been fascinated by the way people interact and 'play' with the jewellery that they wear, usually when they are 'thinking deeply' or having a bit of a daydream!
I'm also interested in mechanical engineering and the way things 'work', so the two have been linked together in my kinetic designs, to form unusual and intriguing jewels.
This collection of kinetic designs came about after I had watched acrobats performing with the ‘diablo’, a two-part ‘cone-to-cone’ shape which magically spins along a piece of wire, controlled by their expert movements. I bought my own version, but could never make it work in quite the same amazing way! The engineer in me decided to create a mechanism that would allow me to bring similar movement to my jewellery, and these pieces are the result.
