• Corroded Dweller ring size Q

    £745.00

    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.

    Artist statement

    “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.”

  • Brain coral ring – one of a kind with silver, enamel and orange citrine

     

    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.
