A few weeks ago I wrote about the exciting news of……. my NEW pieces of jewellery starring in another music video for Milly Winter in her forthcoming song entitled ‘By the River.’
My last post featured some snapshots taken from the day of filming and now I’d like to share some professional shots with you that were taken by my super talented brother – Photographer, Visual artist & Illustrator Gareth Partington. You can read his blog about photographing these pieces here.
What do you think?
I think they capture the detail in my pieces beautifully.
Thank you Gareth!
These pieces are inspired by the Victorian era and have been made specifically for Milly’s character in the video.
Both pieces share ornate components that are created by drawing and forming wire stylistic of Gothic, Victorian iron work. Each element is unique and individual but complimentary to the others within both pieces.
Without giving too much away about the music video and narrative behind Milly’s character, both pieces are symbolic and coordinated with her dresses.
‘Romance’ – ‘By The River’ is a long neck piece threaded with pearls & crystals with multiple draping strands. It is striking yet subtle with an air of innocence. There is a canvas of cream silk within each cameo motif, highlighting the contrast of the oxidized scroll work. The decoration is not contained fully within the frame and organically breaks out.
‘Darkness’ – ‘By The River’ is a choker style neck piece, threaded with jet black crystals, randomly connected and threaded to create depth and volume. The decoration within these components is more complex and intricate than ‘Romance.’ They are also grouped and composed collectively to create a large panel of impact ornamentation. Black silk lies behind the oval frames with varying tones of black. Dark, glamorous, evocative and mysterious…….
I leave you in suspense as we await the release of the video! Watch this space…..
In the meantime I’d love to know what you think of these pieces…
Do you prefer ‘Romance’ or ‘Darkness’ or both?
Would you wear these designs?
Would you like to see a collection of matching items? Such as necklace, earrings and bracelet?
