In the velvet dark of the Somerset countryside, Sia Taylor quietly approaches her craft.
This work, delicate fine jewelry, is influenced by the ephemeral sensations of the earth – wind through trembling aspen leaves, the last rays of sunlight caught before nightfall, a subtle twinkling of far-away stars.
With each earring and necklace, Sia translates these natural inspirations into poetic adornment. Eschewing the typical metal and jewel combinations found in fine jewelry, she presents her body of work purely through recycled 18K gold.
Just as captivating as a string of diamonds or pearls, her signature gold dots are a breath of fresh air in the realm of modern jewelry, wherein the roles of precious gems and metals are often set in stone.
A classically trained sculptor, Sia obtained her degree from the Royal College of Art in London, where she transformed her creativity from sculpting large objects to creating miniature works of art through jewelry.
This move to a smaller scale allows her to get lost within the details. Each element within Sia Taylor’s work is handcrafted, with thoughtfulness and accuracy for the final, shimmering presentation.
