Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork & Jewellery
Brilliant cut cubic zirconia and white laser
The faceted diamond as a whole entity captivates many with its flawless clarity and high light refraction. Essentially a rough mineral dug from the ground, its natural octahedral shape has been crafted by man to a brilliant cut. My collection focuses on developing these facets through a process of deconstruction and manipulation to amplify the mesmerising optics within.
