The ‘spur’ form is a recurrent theme within this collection - ‘It’s Only Rock N’ Roll’. This earring is another translation of it, using the same combinations of voluptuous curved surfaces with knife-edge sharp lines.
My research and design development for the collection was very much anchored in an exploration of youth, beauty, excess and raw emotion. I was referencing the work of photographers such as Bruce Weber and Hedi Slimane, literature such as ‘A Rebours’ (J.K Huysmans), ‘The Rebel’ (Albert Camus) and the writing of Hunter S Thomson. I was watching Kenneth Anger films, in particularly ‘Scorpio Rising’, on loop and going to countless gigs in and around London.
The final collection was my effort to combine these sensations into pieces of wearable sculpture, that felt good, looked beautiful and emanated the kind of raw energy I felt was important to the story.
This earring, like its parent piece: the Spur Ring, was an exercise in sculpture for me. To try to capture a fluidity in form, without losing a sense of strength and vitality was very important. It is hand carved – and the process itself helped to form the shape as I felt the lines when they became right.
