The pieces in Against Nature are both object and jewel. Life-size, these 18k gold sculptures immortalize the increasingly threatened wildflowers found in hedgerows and verges, in the margins between the wild and the cultivated. Hand-rendered in 18k gold sheet and wire, each piece comes apart to be earrings, a brooch or pendant. The wearer, as in nature, can pluck the flower head from the stem and put it in their ear, or button hole. A simple ritual but one which goes to the essence of jewellery.
