Abby Seymour — Silver Ammonite Studs
Abby Seymour’s practice spans jewellery, objects and print. Abby’s practice began as a printmaker, and the nuanced and personal line and dot patterning that characterise her jewellery and ceramics have evolved from this formative background in consideration of surface.
Textural detailing and a distinct language of patterning combine with a subtlety of form in Abby’s works, and through her application to detail and the hand finishing of every piece, she is both conscious of creating a sustainable practice, and also of pushing her artisanal abilities. Working in silver, brass, porcelain and gold for Craft Victoria, Abby’s beautiful pieces are made to combine with any of the other pieces in her range, encouraging personal interpretation and fun.
The Ammonite Studs are delicately etched silver cup earrings featuring the ammonite fossil, whose spiral shape symbolises continual change and evolution. The gentle spiral line work has been etched into the front surface, the reverse, a softy polished beaten texture. The Ammonite evokes feelings of lost relics and jewellery unearthed.
