With a background in sculpture, award-winning artist Emmeline Hastings demonstrates a unique approach to jewelry. Emmeline combines unexpected and contrasting materials in her Bristol studio. She uses her personally developed techniques of hand carving perspex acrylic and embedding it with metallic elements to create striking, beautiful and contemporary wearable sculpture.
"All of my work shares an ephemeral quality while being eminently wearable. I create mysterious miniature landscapes through a unique visual language. I hope to make associations with varying natural phenomenon through this individual making process." Emmeline graduated in 2009 with a degree in jewelry and metalsmithing from UCA Farnham, England. She has contributed to major UK and international exhibitions to great acclaim.
