This delicate and unique pendant measures 20 x 14 mm and hangs on a 18” fine gold plated curb chain. It is made of brass and marbled jade green and white jesmonite, the stone is cast around the metal pieces giving the effect the that it is revealed from rock.
Jesmonite is a composite stone a little like concrete but is designed to look like natural stone, I developed a marble casting technique for this collection. It has a matt finish, feels like natural stone, and has a slightly sparkly finish, like you would find in granite.
Brass is a shiny, gold coloured metal and needs to be cared for in a similar way to silver. When your brass piece is delivered it has a protective coating, after heavy use this will wear off and you will need to polish the metal from time to time to restore the shine.
Zea is part of the Muscle Memory collection inspired by the idea of delicacy vs strength,how do these two ideas co-exist? The human body, so seemingly frail, and the structures we construct to protect it. Muscle Memory launched in September 2018, takes strong organic shapes from flesh and sinew and runs them through with delicate traceries of metal based on the now decaying castles we once built to protect them.
