A fascination for illusion, function and geometric forms enables Katie Snow to create little ‘Pockets of Intrigue’ enticing the viewer to take a closer look. These small, wearable containers conceal treasures of the owner’s desire. She takes photographs of buildings and skylines which are used to manipulate shapes in computer design software, enabling me to extract sections for further development.
Each piece is individually created from silver, carefully constructed into oblique 3D forms. Tiny parts of detail are pierced out of the sheets creating ‘little windows’, enabling the viewer to catch a glimpse inside or straight through the container.
The functional wearables are sleek and geometric, suitable for the male and female wearer. Complementing these is a range of smaller commercial pieces keeping the same aesthetic to form an expanding elegant collection.
What could be concealed in your pocket? A love note, money, medication….? A secret only the wearer will know…
Anna Faine Jewellery is a handmade collection of distinctive, bespoke pieces, designed to celebrate the curious and individual. Each piece is created using precious metals and gemstones to ensure each item tells its own unique story. The primary creative inspiration for her Jewellery comes from both the absurdity and humour of life, and her love of craftsmanship and detail. Anna has always been strongly influenced by the work of Lewis Carroll and Alice in Wonderland, the idea of turning the ordinary into the extraordinary with humour and a genuine search for understanding the world around us. The story has always been the key to how she approaches her work, creating pieces which have many layers of detail and hopefully communicate a personal resonance to the wearer.
Yadaina Aisha is a new independent label specialising in fine, luxury and exclusive jewellery. Designs ‘play with’ and draw a heavy inspiration from nature and possess an ‘exotic beauty’ through the use of a carefully selected wide-ranging colour palette. Coupled with a personal creative vision and a signature style, each design is carefully crafted, highly artistic and contains various elements of abstraction from the subject in focus.
Founded by Cass Jewellery & Silversmithing graduate Yadaina Watson in July 2014, the label strives to ‘deliver with a difference’ whilst maintaining and supporting ‘the handmade craft’. As a highly creative label, this is paramount, especially in today’s ‘saturated mass and machine-led’ jewellery market.
As a label that stands for a ‘hands-on’ approach to making, no two pieces are the same, ensuring authenticity.
The ethos of the label is ‘to encourage individuality’, ‘promote the fashion-focused individual’ and ‘embrace a unique sense of style’.
