Water Element Necklace with LED Effects

LED water element necklace 1

For this year’s Hot Couture fashion show at The Crucible, designer Sophia Constance came up with costumes based on the four elements. Zora represented the water element, and John and Lucy Williams of Guildwerks partnered with Constance to craft metal goods for the water element costume. They used five different “recipes” on the hand hammered copper scales that make up the skirt and metal gorget to get varying shades of blues and greens to bring the colors of the ocean to life. There’s an incredible amount of variation in the patina.

Those aspects and the leather costume are gorgeous but the star of the outfit is the large copper fan necklace. The center features a piece of coral that’s backlit with LEDs from Adafruit. The LEDs change color and add a real power to the costume.
