Darren has been making jewellery periodically for around 15 years, having variously studied and undertaken training in gemology, stone setting and silversmithing. Darren’s practice sees him creating pieces that explore repetition and geometry; working with precious metals he creates patterns that take on a charmingly relaxed approach to mathematical precision.
Random repetitive patterns and simple geometric shapes carefully adorn Darren’s contemporary jewellery. His work is informed by the belief that repetition can reveal intrinsic value in the mundane nature of everyday life. In line with this, highly detailed patterns are hand-chiseled into sterling silver pieces. The strong geometric forms of the pieces offset the intricacy of these patterns, which evoke the fine details of patchwork. This strikingly simple combination reveals an honesty of craft and material.
