Jeweller - Designer - Maker
With her roots in art and sculpture, Emmeline Hastings combines unexpected and contrasting materials from her UK studio. Utilising her individual and original techniques of hand carving acrylics and resins and embedding them with metallic elements she creates striking, beautiful and contemporary wearable sculpture.
Her pieces capture an aliveness, fleeting moments; free flowing and rippling textures. Her ephemeral jewels reveal naturalistic forms, surfaces dotted bristling with glittering metallic elements that shift and change with perspective. An unmistakable aesthetic with mysterious patterns of gold and silver seemingly organic to the form.
“All of my work shares an ephemeral quality while being eminently wearable. I create mysterious miniature landscapes through a unique visual language. I hope to make associations with varying natural phenomenon through this individual making process.”
