Fraser Hamilton, 2011
Featured in the In Your Face exhibition
Fraser Hamilton's IDOLS jewellery collection takes monumental, sculptural and statuesque archetypes, monoliths, totem poles, obelisks, busts, heads and hands, and miniaturises them into jewellery form, subverting their inherent stature. Some are upturned into personal idols, while others adapt to the body treating it as a sort of sculpture park. Hamilton's jewellery is hand-made and each piece is unique, the form first carved out of a solid block of wax, and then cast in precious metals. All materials are ethically sourced. Materials used are: 925 Sterling Silver, hypoallergenic bronze, and gold-plate of 2 microns 24ct fine gold.
Delicate exhibition piece, not good for everyday wear.
