S T R A N D E D/GATHERINGS….

 

S T R A N D E D/GATHERINGS  is a new collection of earrings, pendants and brooches by Lizzie Weir of Anatole Design. The collection has been directly influenced by the objects collected on long desolate beaches in Cornwall, bright sun-drenched beaches and Portugal and rough pebbly beaches in Devon…

The tumbled, battered, burnt, lost, found, stranded pieces of ephemera are collected by Lizzie, each piece a sculptural form to be turned into an original item of fine art jewellery.

The marks made on the wood are created with coloured pencil, pencil and Indian ink. Repetition of mark is key to Lizzie’s work, the relationship between the circle and the line occurring throughout.

Each piece of jewellery is a three-dimensional drawing, one done in wood and silver, the dialogue between the linear silver and the soft sculptural wood one of endless fascination to Lizzie.

Each piece is unique, each piece has journeyed through the sea and has a story to tell.
