I’ve had some fun recently playing with a bit of colour – just finished a new selection of organic beaten gold bands embellished with black and white diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds. Now at Studio 20/17 Project Space, North Sydney. These can also be made from your own gold and gemstones if you have some heirloom jewellery that you’d like to give a new life to. – Bridget Kennedy
I’m a big fan of the work of Sean O’Connell so am pretty damned excited to have a series of his fabulous wedding rings at Studio 20/17 Project Space, North Sydney!
Tantalum is rich, heavy, and deep grey in colour, creating simple yet distinctive rings.
Sean makes each piece individually, using manual machine tools and hand-working wherever he can. He enjoy the process immensely, and this direct contact lends the jewellery a potency and depth that reveals the intimate handmade nature of every ring, bracelet and necklace.
