Ankor Necklace

OOAK Jewelry by Claire Sommers Buck

Angkor was the capital city in the Khmer Empire from the 9th-15th centuries, a period that is considered the classical era of Cambodian history. During this period, its rulers used their vast resources of labour and wealth to carry out a series of prodigious construction projects designed to glorify both themselves, their gods and their capital city. This included the construction of the famous Angkor Wat temple, considered to be the largest religious monument in the world. The Angkor necklace was inspired by the many rounded stones and relief carvings present at Angkor Wat, an impressive, beautiful and inspiring place.

Using brass beads & sterling silver chain, each necklace is hand-fabricated. The middle 4 beads spin, making the feel of this necklace very satisfying.

  • Oxidized brass & sterling silver
  • 29″ sterling silver chain & clasp
  • Pendant 1.25” long
  • Designed & handmade by Claire Buck in Austin, TX.

The designs in the Bayon Collection were born out of a desire to represent the sacred & spiritual places of Cambodia and the Khmer people. Handcrafted using small brass beads and sterling silver wire, they radiate elegance and thoughtfulness. By digging through this collection, we hope you will find yourself enlightened, inspired and transformed by the interpretations of mythological places, carved stone temples and the natural Cambodian landscape.

Enjoy the journey. xx
