18ct yellow gold, rubies
Romy manipulates precious metals by hand and uses fine wax wires to create organic jewellery forms. These forms incorporate found objects such as bottle caps, beer cans, film canisters and computer chips, making permanent what was once ephemeral. By appropriating found objects and employing them in place of precious materials, Romy’s pieces challenge traditional notions of what ‘precious’ means in contemporary jewellery. Found objects are subtly contrasted with 18ct yellow gold, sterling silver and rough cut diamonds, so that all materials are treated equally.
