Inspired by Music and Synaesthesia
I am synaesthetic, which is a neurological trait where my senses cross. Therefore I have a strong visual impression of shape, colour, movement and sometimes texture when I hear music. The Moonstone Tourmaline and Gold Ring is inspired by what I see when I listen to “Wild Is The Wind” by David Bowie. The sinuous lines of Bowie’s voice in greens and blues, flame-like electric guitar, fluid shapes of purple and pink bass. The wildness and romance of the song reflected in the design of the ring.
Mining gold is an environmentally invasive process, so I use recycled precious metals in all my work as far as I can. The gold I used to make this Moonstone Tourmaline and Gold Ring comes from old and broken jewellery. Consequently, I am eliminating the need for newly mined gold in my work. If I need to use new gold, I buy fair mined gold. This supports miners who do a dangerous and challenging job, ensuring my jewellery is helping them to a proper wage. I melted a piece of old gold jewellery down. Then I hand forged the resulting ingot of into this Moonstone Tourmaline and Gold Ring. This ring has a full UK Hallmark for 9ct gold and sterling silver.
