Sia Taylor – Nature inspired fine jewellery
British designer Sia Taylor evokes the lyrical beauty of nature through her fine jewellery. While a sculpture student at London’s Royal College of Art, Sia spent her last term at a research camp in the bush in Botswana. It was a creatively inspirational time, where Sia became deeply interested in the subtle lives and forms of nature around her.
Her fine jewellery collections, years after years are a continuation
process, which takes forms inspired by seeds, grasses, clusters of
insect eggs, and the internal structures of plants. Taylor’s emphasises
minimalist refinement and restraint to evoke a sense of lyricism and
rhythm through the delicate details of her work. Yellow and white
18-karat gold are used to create small seed like forms, which are hooked
into lengths of fine box link chain. The seed forms appear both in
clusters as with a pair of yellow gold earrings – in uniform procession
along the front of a necklace, or in rhythmic variables that draw from
She makes every piece by hand in her studio. It is a meditation and a
labour of love, which shows through in the final product. Each piece
becomes like a work of art something precious to hold on to and cherish.
