Donna Collinson – Contemporary Jewellery – Primitive, organic and temptingly tactile.
Taking my inspiration from our British beaches and landscape, I produce several instantly recognisable collections of jewellery. utilising the ancient lost wax casting technique available in silver, bronze, and gold.
Rich in surface texture and variety of finish, pieces interpret the sea tumbled qualities of pebbles, shells and fossils. Details of oxidisation , gold vermeil, precious and semi-precious stones provide striking contrasts.
The jewellery has a purity of form that can be read across cultural borders in what Jung calls “the collective unconscious.”
