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.
