Bronze and silver metals enshrine crystal stones of Black Tourmaline and Aquamarine across a range of rings, cuffs, earrings, charms and neck pieces. The collection visits the iconography of ancient Egypt and the evolving aesthetic, mood and music of pop deity David Bowie. Inspirations are derived directly from the icon - an image of a young Bowie dressed as a Sphinx in 1969 by photographer Brian Ward, the fabled Story of how the colour of one eye was changed when he was hit in the eye by a hand with a heavy ring, his alleged fascination with Egyptology, aspects of the film 'Labyrinth', and lyrics from the song 'Rebel, Rebel'.
Two short films featuring Bambi Northwood-Blyth and directed by Fiona McGee, encapsulated the mood and spirit of the collection. View them here.
