"Her silken coat lies loosely strung
Her shoulders glossed and white
She sighs a sound of salt and tide
Her voice of naught and night"
- The Selkie Girl
Inspired by Celtic folklore, in particular the legend of the Orkney Selkies, the Iona collection draws on influences of Celtic mythology and the idea of returning to the elements, exploring our endless obsession with the eroticism of wet-look garments.
The piece explores both the physical metamorphosis of the Selkie character, entwined with the mutli-faceted and ever-changing nature of femininity.
Sculpted entirely in silver wire, chains, pearls and crystals.
