An exquisite collection of hallmarked sterling silver wildlife. Artist: Sophie Mackrell.
My love of eastern and oriental art forms drew me to the ancient art of origami - the Japanese skill of folding paper to make recognisable forms. I wondered if this technique could be adapted to create jewellery or shapes cast in precious metals.
Whilst experimenting, it became apparent that wildlife forms worked especially well, and using silver I created these miniature designs inspired by the natural world around us.
Each piece sparkles and shines as the facets and folds dance in the light much like a beautifully cut precious stone.
Highly collectable small silver figurines. These eye catching miniatures feel weighty for their small size.
Each sculpture is presented in a high quality designer cloth pouch and gift bag, and then boxed. Also includes collection booklet.
