I have been an avid follower of Alicia Hannah Naomi since a friend led me to the discovery of her blog many years ago. When she started making her own jewellery I loved her design and aesthetics, and was an instant fan. I applaud her efforts on this new collection, and have my eye on the Awl Ring my favourite piece. I urge you to check out her amazing work.
In response to corporeal relationships and visceral sensuality, the 2015 collection features raw textures with a primal tactility. The desire for human contact is communicated through sculpted surface treatments and undulation that culminates in sharp detail. Interlocking elements delineate our common need for intimacy, while the shadowy blackening of the precious metals amplify the brutality associated with lust. Manufactured in Melbourne from sterling silver, precious gems and volcanic rock; the works allegorise the carnal connection of lovers.
