Brendon Collins — 'Jupiter' Indian Rosewood and Ebony Ring
Western Australia-born jeweller, Brendon Collins, creates unique timber jewellery that embodies his passion for geometric composition, the natural richness of timber, and his steadfast commitment to the traditional aspects of his craft and training. Now based in Melbourne Brendon creates a beautiful range of handcrafted production pieces, alongside one-off works from his exquisite range of native and exotic timbers. Medicine wood (bright orange) pink ivory wood (pink), ebony (black) and sandalwood (golden yellow) are just a few of the amazing natural coloured timbers in his collection. These beautiful timbers are combined with silver, gemstones and more unusual materials such as cast concrete, acrylic, clam and ostrich shell to create truly unique works.
This beautiful rosewood and ebony wooden ring is handmade in Brendon's Melbourne studio using Indian rosewood.
In the Jupiter series of rings, Brendon uses two contrasting timbers to create the illusion of wearing two narrow wooden bands side by side. He uses a few light coats of oil and wax to give the ring a beautiful soft, tactile feel, making it comfortable to wear.
Materials: Indian rosewood, ebony
