Barbara Christie

My intension is to unite a sculptural quality with the best possible wearability. It is about construction, colour, tactile surfaces and movement - something individual and one-off being created with each piece. This leads to a diverse and stimulating range of work.

The materials chosen by me for the making of my work are of the utmost importance. I create a colour palette in which the colours of the stones and the materials merge together. Unusual stones form an important part of the designs, and they come from particular stone dealers from all over the world. The shapes for some of the stones are determined by the design and are cut for this. The quality of the stones is reflected in their brilliance and form. A range of decorative surface patterns is created, giving more detail to the finished article. The precious metals are enhanced with a matt finish.
