Intro
An exhibition of contemporary jewellery, representing time and its accidental creation of beauty. Just as the beauty of a shipwrecked artefact has grown from a random accident so has the inception of the forms, lines & concepts in this series.

Artist list

Danae Natsis
Danae’s new jewels are concerned with the act of creation — the roles of chance and the subconscious in the artistic process, and how shapes and meanings (such as heritage & time) manifest themselves in an object. They were conceived through working with accidents and play - after a period of travel through Europe, America and Greece - experimenting with shape, material, process and colour; allowing these outcomes to acquire meanings that may have been present as subconscious thoughts and building on them; letting themes - islands, myths, museums and memories - evolve.

Neckpieces, brooches and other jewels are created from sterling silver, niobium, copper, shibuichi and pigments. Experiments with patina and pigment mimic 3000 years of oxide and encrustation. Anodised niobium creates psychedelic aquatic creatures. Randomly formed 3D beaten and wrinkled shapes protrude like archipelagos.
