Oxidised Silver and Herkimer Diamond Pendant
Sheffield based jeweller Adele Taylor takes inspiration from objects gathered from the world around her, this pendant in oxidised silver has delicately textured surfaces, accents of gold and a single Herkimer diamond. A Herkimer diamond is a quartz crystal of exceptional clarity, its light catching properties are finely balanced here with the depth and richness of oxidised silver.
“I am an obsessive hoarder. I pick up interesting objects usually because of their texture, (I always have pockets full of rubbish) from rusting washers, to bits of broken car indicator plastic. I then cast parts of these objects in silver and 18ct gold to create a piece of jewellery or as a part of a small scale object, such as a tiny flower vase just big enough for a single daisy.”
