MIDSUMMER NIGHTS DREAM
I wanted to create a summerly, colourful, gemstone driven collection, that was feminine, romantic and poetic. Gemstone jewellery with a very modern vibe, enabling the colours of the gemstones to play the central role. For me the colour palettes are the focus and purpose of this collection and I play with them with precious and semi precious stones. They aren’t the normal sizes and cuts, often over-sized and fancy unique cuts, they are fun and bright. Uplifting, positive and girly.
Inspired by the bohemian, whimsical and romantic comedic nature of Shakespear’s Midsummer Nights Dream, the collection was born more from the costumes and historical illustrations rather than the narrative of the play. Using modern and bright colour combinations, this collection is handmade with 14k gold wire, where I hand created the mounts and claws to enable the colour of the gemstones to sparkle in the sunshine.
