I push the inherent limitations of the natural process of etching in my work to create intricate contemporary jewellery.
Jewellery Designer Annabelle Lucilla Hastings founded her company in May 2013, after scooping the Paul Podolsky award from the British Jewellers' Association for design excellence and First prize for Design for her graduate collection. She was also awarded the prestigious ‘Editor’s Choice’ Award at International Jewellery London, judged by Claire Adler, Luxury Jewellery consultant for the Financial Times.
Annabelle's fascination in intricate surface decoration and sculpture combine seamlessly when she transforms her hand drawn etchings into beautifully tactile, dynamic 3D narrative objects. Her luxurious textured surfaces mirror the feel of ancient treasures, with Annabelle drawing inspiration from ancient civilizations such as the Hellenistic period and Ancient Indian architecture. Annabelle is driven by reviving historical techniques which reflect the imperfections, textures, organic fissures and textures of times past.
