Hermès @ CHAÎNES D’ ANCRE Silver Jewellery

 Hermès CHAÎNES D’ ANCRE Silver Jewellery story begins in 1938 with an anchor chain. Its heavy metal links, designed to withstand the ravages of the sea, are transformed by Hermès into delicate pieces of interconnected silver. A chic twist on an everyday object. Seventy-five years later, this striking creation has become a house emblem, lending its unique style to others tightly locked together in links that are precision-machined, polished, beaded, and twisted into bracelets, necklaces, sautoir chains, rings and earrings. Chaîne d’ancre is unique. It is silver jewellery at its most sublime.
Chanting...enchanting chains, bracelets, rings; this is the sound of Hermès Silver. Out of obscurity a series laser strikes a piece of jewellery placed on metallic turntables, then moves over it, caressing its volume, and coaxes from it its own particular voice. Chaîne d’ancre and its variations, Initiale, Parade, Osmose and Etcaetera - each of Pierre Hardy's creations find musical expression. These alien notes then join together to create an experimental symphony.
This interpretation of The Sound of Silver is a performance initiated in collaboration with United Visual Artist (UVA), the British design practise. Directed by Caswell Coggins. Music by YoggyOne.
