Mismatched Perfection - The Jewelry of Grainne Morton

 
The Edinburgh, UK, jeweler takes asymmetrical and mismatched earrings to a whole new level by incorporating a diverse range of found objects that are beautiful in combination. Stunning color skills.

For a wonderful selection pop over to her website http://www.grainnemorton.co.uk

Artist Statement:

Collecting and collections inform and become part of my jewellery. My vast menagerie of found items become my materials, that are individually set, primarily in silver and arranged together with an emphasis on balance, scale, shape and form. There is always a narrative and something unexpected. As my practice has progressed the materials I use have changed. My jewellery has evolved over many years. More than ever now, I am making jewellery with an emphasis on style. Pieces that I want to wear and that I think will look beautiful on other women.

My current focus is on creating necklaces and earrings that are unique, elegant and timeless yet fashion forward.

I remember her graduation show!

It was fantastic. She's come a long way without compromising her style.
