“I lose myself in the art of granulation, building intricate yet organic clusters. I interlace each jewel in beauty.”

I am absolutely thrilled that 'Sapphire Reverie' has been selected for an award by The Goldsmiths' Craft and Design Council - known as the 'Jewellery Oscars'. It was awarded in the '3D Design - Fairtrade Jewellery' category.

This design is particularly special to me as it is a celebration of beautiful ethical materials - created using an innovative fusion of new technology and ancient craft technique. It is a one-of-a-kind ring, born from a creative collaboration with Gill Wing Jewellery for a project called The Treasury. The occasion was particularly celebratory as the piece was selected for a bronze award alongside a design by my talented friend Amanda Li Hope.

Award winning designs will be on show at Goldsmiths' Hall this month - and the exhibition is open to the public from 25 - 28 February 2020.

Raw 18ct Fairtrade gold is available in limited dimensions. In order to realise ‘Sapphire Reverie’ the latest CAD design and casting methods needed to be employed - creating a perfect singular structure onto which to granulate.

Each unique Fairtrade gold granule was handcrafted on a charcoal block before being cleaned and individually applied to the ring. The bonding of these minute precious granules requires great skill and precision, a careful steady hand and, above all, a meditative like patience.

“We've created this design as a dream piece for our clients, a one of a kind treasure that I would love to own myself. Born from a passion for natural gemstones, the best ethical luxury materials and admiration for the incredible designer-makers we work with.”
- Sarah Burns, Curator Gill Wing Jewellery
