20 Design Objects and Ceramics That Prove Chains Are Trending

When chunky chains became the jewelry trend du jour earlier this year — see Sophie Buhai, Rachel ComeyASOS, etc— it all made sense to us, since for awhile before that we’d been tracking a similar trend in design, from the classic mid-century Carl Auböck paperweight to the dramatic porcelain chains Apparatus used to suspend their Link lights back in 2015. It remained an idea simmering on the back burner, though, until the up-and-coming New York studio Trueing gave us a sneak peek of their Cerine collection this past February, which connected in our minds to recent ceramics we’d seen on Eny Lee Parker’s Instagram, which culminated in an official search for the best examples of the chain trend. We’ve catalogued them below for your enjoyment.
