One of a kind ring from Eily’s ever evolving “Hybrids” range of contemporary jewellery. This ring is silver with enamel fired inside and has an orange citrine. It’s very unusual in shape and is a talking piece.
The top part is hollow and the enamel is fired inside this hollow part. This was a tricky process to keep the enamel on the roof of the ring so that it fired successfully to it. The enamel is a fire red.
The citrine is held in the “eye” of the bark on top, complimenting the orange tones in the inside enamel.
A signed card will be written with the ring declaring it’s name and authenticity.
It is called “Brain Coral” as the colours look like coral mixed with brains. It’s citrine, third eye peers at you whilst wearing and so it deserves a macabre name.
Please enquire for price and more details.
Artist statement on “Hybrids”
Referencing the disruption of nature’s order through my work, I create new life forms that appear as direct replications of recognizable organic matter yet they are not quite as they seem.
Having accumulated an assortment of natural forms and materials based on their intrinsic characters, the process of casting helps me to amalgamate these ever evolving hybrids, deceptively leading to mistaken identity.
By acting as the divine creator, I am mimicking the power we have to alter nature’s path, which ultimately leads to chaos and the sinister presence lurking throughout the work.
“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.
‘These pieces derive from the “sea monsters” collection that are sure to give you magical powers driven by the power of water when worn.
Beware of Fiji Mermaids, they will lure you in with their colourful looks and then pull you under water…
This piece is 9 carat gold, one of a kind with an amethyst to the middle and seafoam tourmaline to the side.
Hallmarked by the London assay office with my registered EOC mark.

These hand painted, coloured earrings have been double fired and enamelled to around 800 degrees. They are cast from little acorn nuts into solid silver and then the blue enamel with an extra layer of a purple glimmer has been fired inside of the acorn after being painted.
