With a background in sculpture, award-winning artist Emmeline Hastings demonstrates a unique approach to jewelry. Graduating in 2009 she has contributed to major UK and international exhibitions to great acclaim. Her work is part of many personal collections as well as that of the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.
Emmeline combines unexpected and contrasting materials in her Bristol studio. Using her signature techniques of hand carving acrylic and embedding it with metallic elements she creates striking, beautiful and contemporary wearable sculpture. Her pieces are light and wearable with mysterious patterns of gold and silver seemingly organic to the form.
Her jewelry captures fleeting moments; something glimpsed. Crystalline forms, surfaces dotted or bristling with glittering metallic elements that shift and change in color and perspective.
