Using detailed layering of silver wires, I immediately found I could create beautiful structures and elements in precious metals.
Eloise transforms her expressive paintings of organic pattern into eye-catching items of jewellery using silver and colourful gemstones.
The unique items range from simple and elegant pendants to wonderfully intricate earrings and neckpieces.
I design and make contemporary handmade jewellery using oxidized and un-oxidized precious metal, perspex and resin.
When designing my jewellery I enjoy exploring the texture and free movement of textiles and applying this element to the hard-edged nature of metal. This has led me on to create my own unique textile which I make by compressing steel wool and inlaying gold, silver and coloured wire among the particles of steel.
My contemporary jewellery designs are all inspired by my photographic images of light with the theme of movement, fragility and protection. I use fine wire and metallic threads to represent the spontaneous lines and the detail involved in each light photograph. I think my photographs and jewellery reflect and capture the excitement and energy associated with city nightlife where you are surrounded by the darkness of night yet observe many forms of light and colour consciously or subconsciously.
