Crafting and Memories
There is always a strong connection between my jewellery and precious memories, growing up surrounded by the hum of a sewing machine and stacks of fabric pieces: my mum was a seamstress. Fabrics with beautiful textures, colours and prints and boxes of zips, buttons and threads in every shade that you can imagine. I was always in awe of the whole dress making process, from pieces of cut fabric pieces together is a particular order became a dress or a blouse. This process of transformation I still love today. Taking a piece of metal or several pieces and transforming them into a piece of handmade jewellery. The same focus and order needed with each stage.
The texture that I have tried to replicate on the Circa Hoops Earrings is of a beautiful waffle cotton fabric, rolled onto the silver to make a permanent impression on the front and back of the earrings.
The Circa Ribbon Earrings are long and replicated the movement of a piece of ribbon.
And the popular Circa Column Earrings that are opposite, represent the inspiring ancient Greek monuments we still admire today.
Perfect gifts for special birthdays.
