BEYOND THE REEF COLLECTION
Beyond the reef, is a new chapter in the cast coral collection, inspired by natural forms thrown up from the deep sea reefs and re imagined in precious metals and gem form. I’m delighted to unveil these never-seen-before pieces which I hope you enjoy discovering as much as I enjoyed bringing them to life.
Gold flora and fauna as found in South American reefs, all fused with the seductive and magnetic power of eons-old gems, gave impetus to this collection. For many years I have collected shells; then on a visit to Venezuela in 1999, I noticed pieces of bleached coral amongst the shells. They lay in a drawer in my studio for over a decade until I decided to make a whole collection around them.
Once cast in precious metals, I discovered that their aesthetic appeal was enhanced bringing them to life again in this constantly evolving collection. The curving, twisting structures develop the perfect qualities to become a natural partner for pearls and gems which harmonise with astonishing tones of blues, greens and oranges rendered beyond the delicacy of Nature herself.
If you like something you see in my new collection, but want something more unique especially for you, please contact me to discuss a commission piece.
