The Hephe will fit a neck with a maximum circumference of 18 inches. It may fit tightly like a choker on 17″ to 18″ necks, depending on how tightly you close the friction fit rivet, and looser on necks below 17″. The thickest part of the metal is 1/2 inch.
What is a Torc?
Dating back to the 8th century, the Torc was worn by the Celts and it is somewhat of a mystery as to what their intended meaning truly was. I have extrapolated that the Torc was worn as a constant reminder of something, as most of the traditional pieces were meant never to be removed. This constant is familiar to that of a yoke, used to bind the necks of ox or slaves together in order to assert power and control over them. However, when we place the Torc upon our own necks, in turn we become the master and the slave of our own will. This tension which applies pressure around one of our most vulnerable physical areas is both comforting and restrictive, allowing one to be both abstracted and present to the immediate moment.
