The Meteorite Jewellery Collection
The first collection out of the studio, Meteorite is a beautiful range of contemporary jewellery, hand-carved, hand-textured, using different hammering techniques to shape the wire, and to bring an eye-catching shine to the mix of metals.
The result is a range of solid, weighty pieces which are hand-finished rather than machine-finished. This gives them a unique, crafted feel. Meteorite pendants and double ring designs lead the collection, displaying the designer’s signature contrast of heavily-textured metals and high polishes.
Inspired by his training in pattern-cutting, Matthew applied his experience in design through the principle of ‘working backwards’.
Using the ‘lost wax’ casting method – where pendants and rings started with wax and carved by hand, forming a prototype cast into silver to make a negative mould – allows for new textures.
- QuickviewRings£39 – £45
This ring is one of the studio’s standout pieces. Hand-textured with the same unique hammering technique that can be seen throughout the Meteorite collection, the thin versions of the regular Meteorite Ring lend themselves more to mixing and matching, stacking and layering.
