Portrait Exhibition

Sula Gallery – February 2022

We had to put our thinking caps on for this exhibition , how can we create a portrait with jewellery?

After a bit of thinking and a few cups of licorice tea, we had our light bulb moment. Jewellery is often an expression of ourselves and even if it is not the first thing you think of, it’s already somewhat of a portrait. The choice of colours, shapes, textures and stones can express a lot about a person.

So we choose one of our favourite selfies and created a quick self portrait using pastel crayons, (having not drawn anything since the 90’s, be kind) then from the colours, shapes and textures we observed we picked out stones that complemented them. Now when the necklace is worn it will suit the wearer perfectly.

The necklace is made from a variety of stones, warm pink opals, red rubies and orange carnelian. Contrasted with a brilliant blue opal, which picks out the colour from the sunglasses and ocean in the background. And very handily picks out the eye colour too.

To display our portrait we have combined the pastel drawing with the necklace to allow them to complement each other and show the relationship between the inspiration and the colours.

Colour Theory Necklaces – Chamber of Commerce / Guernsey Art Network – October 2021

This set of necklaces were part of the first of rolling exhibition in the Chamber of Commerce headquarters in the inner market in St Peter Port.

We chose a set of our greenery necklaces, all inspired by one of our colour theory essays. We wanted to channel our love of green and how it brings a sense of freshness, growth and life. Perfect for brightening the winter months and inspiring us to walk with a spring in our step. You can learn more about our love of green in the full essay.

A big thank you to the Chamber of Commerce for the display space and Guernsey Art Network for organising.

“Joy” Exhibition at St.James – November to December  2020

Rose Quartz and Amethyst Necklace

For this exhibition, we created a series of six necklaces which we called the colour of joy. When thinking about what brings us joy, we kept coming back to colour and the way it affects us and our environment.

All of the necklaces have been made with a variety of semi-precious stones, which are reputed to bring positive effects to the human body, including joy.

This exhibition took place at St.James Concert Hall in the new cafe and the stairwell gallery space.
This exhibition was put together by the Guernsey Art Network.
