Whilst at the Red Brick Mills yesterday, some jewellery caught my eye and I couldn’t resist buying one of the pieces.
I bought one of the asymmetric half cuffs from Emma Ware‘s Re:Cycle collection – it’s made from bicycle inner tubing!
Her pieces are sculptural and tactile and she describes them as “made by juxtaposing malleable dark rubber with polished metal, these are intricate sculptures that are framed and complimented by the body. Reflecting our curves and angles to emphasize and celebrate the beauty in nature.”
“Soft, tactile and moveable these creations need to be seen and touched to be fully appreciated.” – I definitely agree with this, as soon as I had the jewellery in my hands, I knew I’d buy something.
All pieces are made by hand in her London studio, each is a one-off, an art work in itself.
A London based artist and designer with a background in fine and applied arts, Emma studied for a degree at Wimbledon School of Arts and a diploma in Broadcasting at Ravensbourne College. Having been in business for eighteen months Ware jewellery has already received an overwhelming response and established a loyal fanbase. Seen on the red carpet at the MoBo awards, on TV – ‘I’m a celebrity get me out of here’, in print, 125 magazine, Timeout NY, Amelia’s Compendium of Fashion Illustration, and online in numerous blogs.
