Porcelain + Jewellery = Julie Holmes

Jeweller Julie Holmes has been sensitive to the timeless, earthy qualities of clay and the making possibilities inherent in the material.
Her porcelain creations are treated as 'found' objects but one is very aware that they have been 'made' by Julie to be a consistent and beautiful material that seems precious and rare.
These 'found' remnants have a sense of being uncovered in archaeological digs, collected along a beach or skeletal remains. 
This porcelain exploits the ease of creating texture & imprint and the ability to create holes for attachment & wearing. 




It's a shame there are no images of the fittings for these brooches as they are incredible.
