Hilary Bravo Jewellery
Jewellery created using original papier-mâché paintings set in resin.
"I take photographs and paint wherever I go, then once back in my studio, I mix my colours and decide on my abstracted pattern and design, adding layer upon layer of different colours. Frequently as many as 20-30 layers - in order to create the effects I’m looking for. I often include foils and metal leaf - silver, gold and copper.
I only ever paint two A4 board at a time - one for brooches and pendants and one for earrings, that will then be laser cut to make a very small selection of jewellery. Each painting is individual and is certainly one-of-a-kind."
