Light & Shadow

As I was setting up on the last day of the Green Gold exhibition, early morning sunlight was streaming through the window. I seized the moment and captured this image of the cuff and ring handcrafted from the Oro Verde® gold by Stacey Whale. Beautiful.

Cuff & Ring designed and handcrafted by Stacey Whale for The Candescent Project.

Stacey pierced the cuff and melted the cut out pieces from the cuff to form another sheet of gold, from which the ring was crafted. The cut out pieces were also used to set the rubies, sapphires and an aquamarine from Columbia Gem House. As ethical gold chain is not yet available to buy, wire was made from the Oro Verde® gold and used to make the clasp.
