Ferro Forma — Large Oval Earrings in Black Stainless Steel
A pair of oval drop earrings formed in black stainless steel by Ferro Forma.
A shadow line is created between the folded form, creating an eye-catching edge and allowing for the earring to freely rotate and move.
Secured on an earring hook with a ball end style, it enables the earring to freely move and twist on its wire – creating soft movement and ultimate comfort when worn.
Both the earring and earring hoop are custom made in-house in stainless steel, a robust, durable and lightweight material and often a preferred option for those with sensitive ears.
Ferro Forma is a metalsmithing workshop run by creative duo Alison Jackson and Dan Lorrimer, based in Wigwigly/Braidwood, NSW. Specialising in handcrafted, small batch edition objects they combine their shared expertise to create contemporary jewellery, flatware and vessels. Using a wide range of traditional and modern metal-forming techniques they pair fine hand skills with hand machining and complex industrial processes, using machinery that spans from the 1850s to today - blending old-world making with contemporary design.
Jackson completed a Bachelor of Arts in Gold and Silversmithing with Honours in 2008, and began her independent studio in 2013. Lorrimer completed a Bachelor of sculpture in 2009 and established his own studio in 2011. The duo joined forces creating Ferro Forma in 2021 and were part of Select for Melbourne Design Week, 2022.
