Alchemy Jewellery Collection
This Winter's new collection is Alchemy, a mystical mix of jewellery inspired from the dawn of modern science when Alchemy was a born of myth, philosophy, religion and maths, with influences from India, Greece, Arabia and Egypt. The physical and chemical processes they developed were used in many ways such as the preparation of beautiful perfumes, creation of luxurious dyes and more.
This collection features mixed metals, typically raw brass, rolled gold and oxidized silver. I love the idea of using a chemical process myself to oxidize the silver, playing with the idea of being an ancient alchemist, myself.
New jewellery is being added to the collection over the next few weeks, so watch this space.
"Alchemy is the art of liberating parts of the Cosmos from temporal existence and achieving perfection which, for metals is gold, and for man, longevity, then immortality and, finally, redemption. Material perfection was sought through the action of a preparation (Philosopher's Stone for metals; Elixir of Life for humans), while spiritual ennoblement resulted from some form of inner revelation or other enlightenment."
