Gold 3D printed jewellery collection for Luoisa Guinness, 2013. The term Foliates is derived from the botanical world of plants. It relates to leaves and leaf structures, their highly evolved shapes that are there to capture sunlight and rain. These rings and this collection appear as if the very last leaves of a tree or plant have unfurled from ones hand so that there is a relationship between the finger and the leaf, the gold appearing from the delicate void that I find so feminine and sensual and unattended. They sit lightly, exploring the dynamics of space and the digital realm converging organic design with the nature of naturalness that underlines my life’s commitment to sourcing the trinity that can exist so succinctly when technology, materials and form converge in the advanced times in which we live.
