Entirely handmade and unique design.

Through history, the "elements" that were believed to make up the Earth and everything on it, have varied with different cultures and people. Here is my homage to the great thinkers of science.

EARTH; a segment of river-worn clay house-brick is held in place with a traditional rub-over setting.
AIR; an empty silver room remains empty but for the air we breathe, the door is ajar...
FIRE; three enameled matches in various states of fiery decay. Making fire took man to a new state of civilization.
WATER; it brings us life and death. Layered waves of reclaimed tins.

The four elements sit in a handmade silver and copper box brooch with double steel pin. Traditional jewellery-making processes used to construct this brooch include, cabochon stone setting, repousse, engraving, etching, silver soldered construction, enamelling, riveting.

Brooch is 38mm x 38mm. Depth of box is 7mm
