PRODUCT: Alternating Cubes Necklace
MADE: France
SIZE: 15" long with 6" extender chain; large cubes are 1.25" square
MATERIALS:  Lucite, stainless steel
DESIGNER: Laurent Guillot
French jewelry designer Laurent Guillot is a master working with Lucite, which he heats and manipulates by hand to create stunning jewelry pieces which subtly catch and reflect light. This necklace features alternating colored and clear cubes with a lobster-claw clasp. The colored pieces are dipped into a special bath of color for a few seconds.

Guillot has a very strong background in the European luxury market. He has taken part in the creation of jewelry collections for Yves St Laurent, Chanel, Courrèges, Guy Laroche, Swarovski, and Baccarat. Lucite is different from resin in that it cannot be mass produced, and Guillot has been working with the material for many years. He has a technical expertise that few others will ever attain. Each piece is handmade in Guillot’s atelier, located in the Norman countryside.
All proceeds from the MCA Store support the exhibitions and programs of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
