18ct Yellow Gold
GENTLEMAN GANGSTER LINED LINK PENDANT
The inspiration for the collection entitled Vincent was drawn from an obsession with dangerously stylish gentlemen. Hannah also took inspiration from ’30s art deco interiors and mid-century Soviet graphics, amongst others.
The result can be seen reflected in this simple yet elegant pendant – designed to hang low on the chest, the side detailing makes this piece sculptural, tactile and fascinating to the touch.

‘Vincent’ is a collection that tells the story of a dark and dangerous character, ruling London’s underworld with an iron fist. Vincent is the perfect gentleman gangster - suave, sophisticated and deadly. Impeccably dressed – you would perhaps see just the tails of his perfectly tailored coat disappearing down a dark alleyway, or a flash of his diamond cufflinks as he stalks out of an underground gambling den.
My initial research took in monumental Soviet Modernist architecture, Russian communist propaganda graphics, post-modern Russian art (Malevich particularly) and the films of David Cronenburg and Tarkovsky, amongst other inspirations.
The form of this bracelet originally began as I was sketching what I saw as traditionally masculine accessories – vintage lighters, old gold watches and their chains, classic signet rings. The sculptural lined structure developed from this research, mixed with the brutalism of the architecture I was referencing.
I wanted the links of the bracelet to reflect the autonomy of the power of Vincent. They had to be strong and powerful, yet have something elegant and sculptural about them. These graphic lines can be seen in many guises across the collection – a visual language that has come to me to embody both the character and the story.
