oxidised sterling silver, sterling silver, 9ct yellow gold, rubies
To mark e.g.etal’s 25th anniversary, a collection of e.g.etal artists have each created a piece of jewellery that exists at the intersection of defiance and desire. These are beautiful, covetable objects that also challenge the wearer and push at the boundaries of what jewellery can be.
On first reflection, the concepts of desire and defiance could seem contrary and non aligned. But at the heart of great desire is often the act of defiance, the thrill of pushing against the norm. But not all acts of defiance are bold, some are small and subtle. The design of these earrings as a mismatched pair, challenges the notion that earrings must be perfectly matched. Hanging in opposite directions they ask the wearer to question the need for symmetry. The red hue symbolises desire, passion, and love, with the inclusion of floral elements which evoke an association with romantic gestures.
Pieces from this collection will be shipped at the conclusion of the exhibition (from 23rd November, 2023)
