Eily’s one of a kind ‘Relic’ collection has been exhibited worldwide in order to highlight the plight of bees. This 9k gold ring is cast from bee heads, and the striped band is based on a bee’s antenna. The intricate piece is crowned with an ethical yellow sapphire from Montana.
The organically shaped round band measures approximately 2mm in depth. Ring size M
Only 6 pieces were made for this small collection so this is a rare and special piece of jewellery.
One of a kind ring from Eily’s “Hybrid” range where each pieces is made up from a hybrid of different species. Recorded into metal and forming new species, these treasures take on a unique life of their own.
This particular ring “Corroded Dweller” is cast from sea bark, layered up like steps around the finger with a crab’s body and dung beetles head. Other areas have been carved and then it has all been cast into solid silver. It then has orange enamel and a fire opal stone set into it.
It is so called “Corroded Dweller” as the orange enamelling resembles rust and dung beetles like to spend time dwelling underground to eat their collections from the day.
This is a one of a kind piece of contemporary statement jewellery and sits beautifully on the hand.
“Referencing the disruption of nature’s order through her work, Eily conjuers up wearable macabre treasures, illuminating absurd beauty in natural forms.
Studying them delicately before deciding how she will encapsulate their inherent attributes, morphing them into new species by casting and recording them in metal opens up a new world for them, allowing change in their disposition, enhancing their mystic. Each piece is then
refined and gently swathed with gemstones, enamels, surface techniques and other curios.
Acting as the beholder of such manipulation, O Connell mimics thepower we as humans abuse, altering nature’s path. Ultimately, leading to a juxtaposition of allure and a sinister presence lurking through the work.”
