DESIGN SILHOUETTE RING WITH PEARL
My intent is to make high-end contemporary jewellery more affordable for the average individual, by using new advances in technology and software in the jewellery industry.
The materials used are either sterling silver or gold with fresh water pearls, south sea pearls or diamonds. The piece is designed on the computer, facilitated by Rapid prototyping, cast and finished by hand.
Using very familiar geometric forms, clean lines and harsh curves, I’ve transformed the unconventional sharp edges and points of a marquis, into pieces that are extremely comfortable when worn. At first glance the piece is assumed to be uncomfortable, but when placed on the body, the wearer is pleasantly surprised.
Jewellery should make the wearer feel good about themselves, make a statement but at the same time not overpower the canvas that is the wearer.
