Fold is a comment on memory, society, consumerism and a host of other massive topics. Dramatic silhouettes flow elegantly and effortlessly in a series of pieces that present creases, pleats, ruffles, and layered folds and explore the essences of texture and shape.
Referencing the way drapery has been used by painters to convey movement since the Renaissance, particularly in the sketches of Leonardo da Vinci, Fold is fascinated by the way fabric is folded depending on the particularities of the human condition. Informed by a knowledge of art history, the collection narrates differences in a series of folds: a neat fold in the medieval Dutch portrait, a careless fold in that of a merchant sitting for a renaissance painter - these tell the story not just of a person's mood but also their historical moment.
The piece is thoughtfully handcrafted using recycled sterling silver plated in platinum, with freshwater pearl and ceramic.
The earrings are available in one size only.
When you love something, you don't throw it away or replace it. You mend it. We can lovingly renew and restore sterling silver and gold vermeil jewellery - just like my grandparent's mended my clothes for me when I was a child.
Renewing scratches and minor damage: Small scratches, broken posts, missing stones - these can also be easily repaired - so they can last a life time and become heirlooms.
Renewing: Completedworks gold vermeil plating is 3 mircons thick - which should mean the gold will last 2-3 years of regular wear. If it does become worn, we can offer an affordable and hassle-free replating service.
