Shimara Carlow

My jewellery has been inspired by natural forms, primarily seedpods and I have created a body of work based on pod like structures. I use silver, 18ct gold, silk paper and gum nuts to create my jewellery. Collections include ''Daisy'', ''Acorn Cup'', and ''Acorn Cup Wrap''. These pieces are constructed from individual acorn cup and daisy units assembled to create both large and small scale pieces of jewellery. The cups are assembled to hang in long articulated chains or set in to intricate wire structures that adorn the body.

New jewellery collections include "gum nut", neckpieces, rings and earrings constructed from both silver and real gum nuts; "picture", a selection of pendants and brooches using wrapped wire and small acorn cups assembled in a silver frame; "honesty", whitened and reticulated silver ovals, which resemble honesty leaves, constructed in to long articulated neckpieces and bracelets. I have also developed both my silver and my 18 carat gold "wrap rings" to include precious stones such as diamonds, pink sapphire, aquamarine and pink and green tourmaline.
