Bows are a big thing at the Atelier. Alan makes three or four distinctive bow necklaces each year and they are thought out very carefully. Designed to be worn asymmetrically, they are as much a sculpture as they are a necklace. Sometimes we get very daring with the colour combinations but in this case we opted for dark and classic. Jet and white opal is black and white with an evening twist. Though we have photographed this piece on a bare neck it also works remarkably well over a snug turtleneck.
