Strange Beauty… the title of Ran’s master project. Ran’s mastery of both precious metalwork alongside the sophisticated application of enameling is highly aesthetic and sensitively crafted. Ran undertook extensive research through detailed drawing & photography to gain an understanding of nature’s micro world, so often hidden from the human eye. Her thoughtful designs seek to communicate these wonders of the natural world that surround us. Each piece of jewelry sends a message, they tell the viewer where they came from and how they were created. The message is not limited by words or language, it is stored within the form of the piece and in the materials employed. Sensual pieces are designed to delight the eye through their inherent intricacy whilst adorning the body.
