Creating "Body of Water": A Journey of Art and Craftsmanship

A Vision Unveiled
The inception of "Body of Water" was a momentous occasion, sparking the imaginations of our entire team. Inspired by the delicate ripples and intricacies of water, we embarked on a creative journey that would test the boundaries of our abilities in molten and flame-work production.
Meticulous Testing
The road to creating each piece in this collection was paved with meticulous testing and experimentation. From glass colouring techniques to ensuring the durability of each design, we left no stone unturned in our pursuit of perfection.
72 Hours of Dedication
It's said that true art takes time, and this couldn't be truer for "Body of Water." Some pieces in this collection took up to 72 hours to handcraft. The process, though time-consuming, was a labor of love, resulting in the exquisite pieces you see today.
The Evolution of Our Craft
As artists and craftsmen, we're in a constant state of evolution. "Body of Water" represents the next chapter in our journey. It's not just a collection; it's an evolution of our craft, a testament to our commitment to pushing the boundaries of what's possible.
A Journey of Months
From the first spark of inspiration to the final creation, "Body of Water" took us on a journey that spanned over 12 months. It was a process of drafting, creating, refining, and reimagining. Every piece you see today carries with it the culmination of this journey.


"Body of Water" is more than just a collection of jewellery. It's a reflection of our passion, dedication, and the unrelenting pursuit of artistic excellence. It's a journey that has tested our limits and expanded our horizons. We're immensely proud to share it with you, and we can't wait for you to experience the artistry and craftsmanship that went into creating each piece.


Stay tuned for more stories from behind the scenes, and thank you for being a part of our creative journey.

With artistic appreciation,
