‘Vincent’ is a collection about a gangster. A suave and sophisticated, yet deadly dangerous, Russian mafioso ruling London’s underworld with an iron fist, albeit a fist draped in gold.
The ‘facet’ motif appears throughout this collection, in many guises. The graphic lines and architectural sculpture were drawn from my explorations of Russian monumentalist architecture, 50’s Soviet propaganda graphics and post-modern Russian artists such as Malevich, amongst others.
What tied these references together for me were the brutalist lines, and clean graphic forms – they have incredible understated power. I wanted to capture this in a sculptural form within the jewels themselves. The aim was to create pieces that would uphold the strength of Vincent himself – a small nod to a life lived in dangerous decadence.
Carving the facet’s for these earrings by hand allowed me to be in complete control of the final form, almost feeling it as I went along. Hanging this little golden facet on a hoop allows it to move, reflecting the light from its angular form, catching just the right amount of understated attention.
