Studio Metallurgy Reborn 2020 pearl ring

The Reborn Collection

Reborn, a deeply personal reflection of being a new mother, of giving birth away from home, of unforgiving expectations between ambition and biology. Entirely hand sculpted in stolen moments between nurturing a tiny human life and nurturing the first born - my label. This collection continues to teach me patience and be truly creative. The name aptly surmises the story of this collection coming together. It took seed on a contemplative walk on a beach in Oman, collecting washed up broken shells. Using broken pieces & debris of old metal casting experiments, as if practicing the art of Kitsugi, I channelled the making of something beautiful from leftover fragments of something whole. Much like the DNA of a human body. Pearl, my birthstone was an instinctive choice to include as I sought strength to navigate this new phase as a mother and as an artist.
