Summer Beasts in Supermarket at Craft

December 16, 2014

This December the Supermarket exhibition opened at Craft.
The theme explores production work within the gallery. I used this opportunity to develop a limited edition collection of Summer Beasts, feeding on and contributing further to the theme of fauna that already runs through my work, featuring silver scales, coils and tiny, bright little eyes...

The exhibition runs until January 31st, 2015...Get down there!

Nature Lovin' Sweethearts

November 27, 2014


 I was asked by a couple of nature lovers to replicate a little entwined vine ring while made on a bushwalk in gold, with a pink sapphire and ruby caught up in it. 


18 carat yellow gold with pink sapphire and oxidised 18 carat gold with ruby.

Warm gold and a glint of pink for hers complemented a parti sapphire engagement ring giving an overall dusky sunset kind of vibe. He liked the rich pairing of a red, red ruby in oxidised gold that will eventually wear back to a yellow, with the oxide remaining in the recesses, leaving it looking aged and well loved. 


18ct Yellow Gold, Pink Sapphire

Oxidised 18ct Gold, Ruby

Indeed, the ephemeral was transformed into the eternal and the two got hitched in a favorite spot a few weeks ago....big congratulations!!!
