Abby Seymour — Tea Tree Bloom Earrings
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 Tea Tree Bloom earrings feature a delicately articulated floral tier of hand textured petals and inner filament suspended on a fine sterling silver hook. The intricate surface pattern and formation highlight the beautiful details of the flower (Leptospermum from the Australian native Myrtle family) as they move and shimmer in the light resulting in a confident yet delicate design. Further reflecting the flowers' natural beauty is the enamel painted surface which mimics the magnificent magenta pigmented hue. The light weight design make for a comfortable wear.
