Distorted Gold Pendant

by Ruth Brown Jewellery



An eye-catching black and gold pendant with sculptural kinetic elements. A statement piece, which would be perfect worn with striking block colours.

Inspired by distorted reflection and space, this statement pendant is influenced the fragmentary nature of observation. A bold contrast is created between the textural effect of the resin-encased gold leaf and the oxidised finish of the linear silver forms. Despite the contrasts, repetition plays a large role in the design on this piece, with pentagonal shapes distorted and skewed in various ways- both two and three dimensionally- to create each individual element of the whole. The kinetic forms -developed from simple pentagons- add another dimension to the piece which is representative of the intertwined nature of light, shadow, space, movement and context.

Ruth graduated from the department of Silversmithing and Jewellery Design at The Glasgow School of Art in 2016. Since then, Ruth has exhibited nationally, whilst undertaking a year-long artist residency at the Glasgow School of Art.

Currently, Ruth is a Jeweller in Residence at Hurstpierpoint College in West Sussex, a role created in conjnction with the Goldsmith's Centre.

Her work is inspired by the repeated linear structures found within urban architecture, and the fragmented images created by the reflective planes of a city.

I am intrigued by illusion and perception. Through exploration of reflective surfaces, linear form, and negative space, I attempt to harness visual juxtapositions, to depict the fragmentary nature of observation and understanding. I aim to portray this through the sculptural frameworks of jewellery objects, which are as intruiging off the body, as they are when worn.

My design process is centred around the use of photography and both two- and three-dimensional drawing. This provides the inital inspiration for designs, and is often incorporated directly into my pieces. I design through making - photographing, gathering, drawing, collaging, model-making and sampling - to problem solve and develop my ideas until they become refined, well-made, wearable objects.
