Chris Boland

My fascination with inorganic structure is used to inform my bespoke jewellery pieces. Strong, bold shapes stress the unique qualities of the inclusions of the gemstones. I draw inspiration for surface treatment from architectural metalwork and sculpture. Marks made during the construction of the work allowed to remain or are emphasized.
By design, the stone is offered up to the viewer, always in a pleasing and unusual way and the rings look as good off the hand as on.
The gemstone is of fundamental importance in my work. All the stones I use are natural and untreated in any way. I believe that it is important to tell the story of the stones using my unique designs in metal.
