Names-Terrain

This collection; Terrain is Inspired by the eroded landscape of the Burren, the cracked limestone pavement, the sloping, linear surfaces, peppered with hidden caves & pools. The constant weathering has created layers of rock, which overlap, jut out, catch the light and create shadows. It is these rock formations which have inspired a range of stacking rings and earrings, which stack, crossover, create a different perspective depending on the chosen combination. A mix of finishes, both polished and textured are used to highlight elements of each shape, to add interest and tactility. 

When naming this collection, we looked to women who make and sculpt, women who are so connected with their materials, who have a deep understanding of their capabilities, which enables them to manipulate and distort, to create new shapes and forms. Whether working in stone, metal, glass, wood or ceramic, the common thread linking these prolific women, is their sense of place, the connection with their environment, in many cases, the same rocky landscape which has inspired this collection. 

All pieces are crafted by hand in a choice of 9ct recycled gold, or recycled sterling silver.
