British designer Sia Taylor evokes the lyrical beauty of nature through her fine jewellery. While a sculpture student at London’s Royal College of Art, Sia spent her last term at a research camp in the bush in Botswana. It was a creatively inspirational time, where Sia became deeply interested in the subtle lives and forms of nature around her.
Her fine jewellery collections are a continuation process, which takes forms inspired by seeds, grasses, clusters of insect eggs, and the internal structures of plants. Taylor’s emphasizes minimalist refinement and restraint to evoke a sense of lyricism and rhythm through the delicate details of her work.
Yellow and white 18-carat gold is used to create small seed-like forms, which are hooked into lengths of fine box link chain. The seed forms appear both in clusters –as with a pair of yellow gold earrings- in uniform procession along the front of a necklace, or in rhythmic variables that draw from natural compositions.
Sia makes every piece by hand in her studio located in Glastonbury, a village now famous for its summer music festival.
It is a meditation and a labour of love, which shows through in the final product. Each piece becomes like a work of art, something precious to hold on to and cherish, a precious thing that you care about, just for yourself, which combines freedom of movement, space and time, and the aspiration to create a luxury for yourself, as Virginia Woolf speaks of a "room for yourself."
