June Showcase: Corrinne Eira Evans
Corrinne is fascinated with the exploration of the heritage technique of flat chainmail. Focusing on utilising a combination of raw precious metal colours and interlocking them in bold and subtle patterns in the construction of a flowing tactile metal textile, making wearable contemporary jewellery with a timeless appeal.
Connecting the inspiration of Dartmoor and its’ assimilation to contours of the body. Making from top quality ethical materials to fabricate wearable every day, and one off, high end contemporary jewellery pieces, to include; earrings, bracelets, necklaces, bangles and brooches.
The combination of recycled golds, silver and titanium create a sensual soft palette, encouraging the wearability of the pieces. Using these metal choices also echoes the connection to the land particularly Dartmoor, reflecting Evans’ habitat in Devon.
The silver and golds act as a shimmering presence within the matt grey of the titanium. A contrast that lends itself so beautifully to the overall unique designs she loves to produce. Every ring is constructed individually and meditatively ‘knitted’ together in the absorbing process of flat chainmail, an important core to her designs, maintaining a connection with the human handcrafted quality that enriches each piece.
