Kintsugi: knowing that something is more beautiful for having been broken

Launching my latest collection of jewellery exploring the taboos surrounding mental health.

For me mirrors represent the presented self. They are a literal reflection of how we wish to be seen, hiding beneath the surface is our true selves. By using whole, broken, and repaired mirrors, my new collection explores the different stages of mental health and the pressure to present a perfect image of yourself, when inside you are broken. Using the Kintsugi technique of repairing with gold, I have created pieces of jewellery which show the beauty in the broken. I want people who struggle with depression, anxiety, every mental health problem there is, to know that they are not alone, and that they are beautiful.

10% of all proceeds will be donated to local mental health charities.

Transform your jewellery for the perfect piece

 

The For Others collection is inspired by a trip to the Southampton lighthouse in Bermuda, and reading the quote:"A lighthouse is for others, powerless to illuminate the space closest to it." This tied so beautifully to Eleanor's interest in why we wear jewellery and how we use it to communicate that it inspired her entry into the Charman Prize competition and a full collection of jewellery which can be dismantled and put together again to communicate or illuminate what the wearer chooses.

Each piece is made with secure clasps to turn a necklace into earrings for example, and each gem stone has a small handmade screw attached so it can be removed and exchanged with a different gem.

An old superstition gets a modern twist

 

When creating the Bermuda triangle collection Eleanor focused on the triangle, and worked on finding a way to channel the idea of the unexpected that is connect to it. Her final collection uses long strips of triangular wire made into elegant bold geometric designs.

Specialist in custom design

Eleanor's training in both traditional goldsmith techniques and contemporary design combine beautifully in her custom work. She will work one on one with each client to design and make the perfect piece. Anything from setting a coin to engagement rings, to key rings to remodeling old jewellery. Eleanor can create an entirely new design, or customize and existing piece to your specifications.

Eleanor will first meet with clients to consult on what they want, some people have a strong vision, others have a concept, either way Eleanor talks with them, looks at images and works to come up with some design ideas. She will then present them with scale sketches of the final design before starting work on the piece itself.

Please get in touch if you're interested in commissioning Eleanor to make something special for you, or have any questions about the process.
