Dazzle Invites | Ciara Bowles
'Being brought up in London's East End, my tastes in colours and aesthetics have formed through being surrounded by a multitude of cultures and the urban city. Inspired by the patterns and forms that I see in my native environment, I strive to create intricate fine jewellery that are luxuriously exciting and imbued with a sense of playfulness. Using colourful stones and the ancient technique of lost wax casting, the jewellery combines the old and the new – and will hopefully stand the test of time.'
Ciara Bowels Symbols collection draws on the shapes and symbols that are recognisable in everyday life; circles, squares, triangles, hearts, stars. Combining these shapes to create patterns, imbuing the designs with personality and meaning that will connect differently to each wearer. The pieces are designed to stack and link together, creating new shapes and stories of their own.
Whilst ensuring that the jewellery is ethically produced with a sense of consciousness, Ciara believes it is important that the products are human made – a quality that is becoming more and more valuable within the digital age. Each piece of jewellery is created as an individual - ready to be made into authentic future heirlooms.
Ciara Bowles is showing an exclusive range of jewellery as part of the virtual Dazzle exhibition – Dazzle Invites.
Dazzle invites 30 contemporary jewellers, showing unique, one-off or limited edition designs, created specially for the exhibition. All pieces are available to purchase from 17 November – 10 January.
