The ‘spur’ form is a recurrent theme within this collection - ‘It’s Only Rock N’ Roll’. Originating from a pair of genuine boot spurs I hand-forged in sterling silver as a nod to ultimate masculine decadence, I pushed the sculptural qualities of the shape as far as I could.
As I was developing the collection I was immersed in a world of youth culture, excess and the wild hedonism of live rock and roll. The world I created was the home of decadent musicians, living life to the very edges of destruction – pushing boundaries, playing with fire. I wanted to create pieces that reflected this passion, and that referenced the visual codes of the culture whilst translating them into fine jewellery.
The idea behind this earring was that it captures the punk ethos of a safety pin through the ear – a sculptured shard of gold that pierces the ear with elegance, but without fuss.
The shape itself I hand-carved to really capture the juxtaposition of volume and sensuality, with the knife-edge sharp lines and points. I felt that the tension created by this combination would reflect the energy of the story I was trying to tell. A simple piece, but powerful at the same time.
