Even from the very beginnings of my journey into this collection I knew that pearls had to play a part in it. The roots of this collection lie in my fascination with masculinity and gender, combined with my love of the raw power and energy of rock and roll culture.
Whilst building up a world populated by suitably decadent and untamed characters, living life at the very edges of destruction, I became intrigued by the juxtaposition of the riotous, raucous, darkly licentious culture of rock and roll and the elegant luxury of the world of fine jewellery – and wanted to combine the two.
Hand carving the sculptural ‘spur’ shapes for the gold parts of this necklace, I felt that to combine these with black pearls would capture the tensions of these contrasts perfectly. I feel it is the tension that brings the intrigue and excitement to the pieces.
Even within the gold shapes themselves there is a strong contrast between curved surfaces and sharp, knife-edge lines. I wanted these pieces to feel good to the touch, and to feel good to wear, to uphold a certain sensuality whilst giving the feeling of a raucous energy about to be unleashed.
