I've been busy creating a completely new Sea Urchin collection to preview at Goldsmiths' Fair (Week 2), inspired by the exquisite linear patterns found on sea urchin shells. I've collected these marvels of nature since I was a child and have always been drawn to their mesmerising form.
In the new work, silver spine settings form a contemporary structure, which is meticulously embedded and scattered with combinations of gold and silver granulation. Sea urchins can be found in many different colours, as well as pure white. Oxidised silver and gold variations, capture the dramatic aesthetic of the darker coloured species.
I've also created a new swoop of Tide Collection showstoppers for the fair. Designs feature stunning CanadaMark diamonds and ethically-sourced, ocean-toned sapphires - set in waves and whorls of 18ct fair trade Gold and recycled-silver granulation. There are also pretty new Cove earrings and pendants, formed with sumptuous curves of gold, cinched with granulation detailing.
