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.”
Total length: approximately 47cm
