National Record Store Day Neckpieces

In celebration of ‘National Record Store Day’ this weekend, we’ve created these silver unisex miniature albums sleeves & record neckpieces, in collaboration with hand engraver and legend that is Peter Harris. Raff and I chose albums important us and Peter engraved the designs onto the pieces with his usual unbelievable skill. The mini 12″ silver records slip in & out of the sleeves.

We thought long and hard about our choices, which of your favourite album covers would you choose to wear???..
