Brooch - Silver and Gold
5 x 4 cms
Created from beaten and etched silver and 18ct yellow gold set with found pebbles and semi-precious stones, Guy Royle's work is exquisitely crafted and reminiscent of the primitive adornments of ancient man. Blurring the boundaries of jewellery and art, his distinctive brooches can be as composed as paintings, his bangles and necklaces as elegant and substantial as sculpture.
