Made as part of recent snakeskin series I have been doing as interested in using new textures.
Beautiful textured double drop earrings from the “Barking mad about you” range. Cast from sea bark found along the West coast of Ireland where Eily calls home, these stand out earrings will sound like waves lapping on your earlobes.
“Algae Bloom” ring is a nod to algal blooms which occur in water where there is a rapid increase in the population of algae. This causes a discoloration in the water, which has varying shades of teals and greens. It is often caused by too much fertilizer being washed into the water promoting the growth of bacteria, which cause these blooms. Man’s residual effect of fertilizing the soil, forgetting the symbiosis that exists between all living organisms.
Eily’s work deals with the disruption of nature’s order by creating hybrid works of macabre jewellery. Acting as the beholder of such manipulation, she mimics the power we have and sometimes abuse, to alter nature’s path. Ultimately, leading to a juxtaposition of allure and a sinister presence lurking through the work.
Each piece is made by collecting and combining various organic matter based on it’s intrinsic qualities. These are married together to create new other worldly forms by the process of casting. This ring has been cast from natural materials with some wax carving. It has been cast in two parts, silver and 18 carat gold, then soldered. It has been oxidized, enameled and a tourmaline and quartz are set into the ring.
Are you barking mad about someone? Cast from Irish sea bark that Eily found whilst foraging along the beaches by her home along the West Coast of Ireland. This gold ring has a lovely texture and polished smooth inside for comfort.
It is 1-2mm in depth (organic textures change the depth) and 4/5 mm in width. It has a high polish inside.
Perfect for that special man in your life! It can be worn as fashion accessory or as your special wedding day band. A unique band to suit a unique person.
