fused fine silver, sterling silver with 18ct yellow gold, South Australian smoky quartz, handmade sterling silver chain
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.
Swirling moons of fused silver and gold orbit the smokey quartz star. The star’s path is formed as the natural radiation, emitted from the surrounding rock, activates colour centres around aluminum impurities within the crystalline quartz. The rare star formation in this piece of Australian smokey quartz signifies a desire line extending over thousands of years. While we think about stars in our galaxy as static, the earth moves and the stars track across the sky – twinkling due to atmospheric winds – they do have their own motion. They move around the centre of the galaxy where we find an exotic collection of objects. The supermassive black hole Sagittarius A, weighing about 4 million times the mass of the Sun, neutron stars and white dwarf stars tearing material from companion stars producing beautiful tendrils of radio emission.
