FINALIST in the Contemporary Wearables 2017 jewellery awards.
Handmade brooch featuring Sublimated photograph and 3D render on Aluminium.
Tiltled ‘FEED ME’ contemporary handmade jewellery
Inspired by the fragility, beauty and sheer wonder of nature. ‘Feed Me’ combines a 3D rendering of a nest with a photograph I took of new chicks (awaiting their mothers return with food) sublimated onto Aluminium. When you take time to engage in your surroundings you can witness beautiful moments. I sat patiently and watched these chicks arouse from sleep in hunger and waited whilst the Mother bird went in search of food. Moments after I took this photograph the Mother bird nourished her chicks all the while keeping her eye on me knowing I was watching. Her Mother instinct was visceral. This piece combines my passion of making jewellery with my love of photography, nature and wildlife. The materials include Sublimated Aluminium, riveted to Aluminium with a sterling silver brooch pin. Feathers add texture to the nest and depth to the piece.
