Entangled brooch - 2016 -
This brooch is the first addition to the ‘Xylem
Collection’, a continuation from ‘Coiled Pins’ and
An immortalised luffa has been formed after several
attempts at creating a successful and light weight lost
wax cast in rhodium plated sterling silver. It holds a
hand coiled ruby where the seed will have originally sat
and its 18 carat gold fibres are intertwined within the
luffa structure. Sapphires are trapped inside and the
brooch finding is also secured by the luffa skeleton.
Finally a 23.5 carat gold leaf embellishes the piece.
