Emmeline Hastings

With a background in sculpture, award-winning artist Emmeline Hastings demonstrates a unique approach to jewellery. Graduating in 2009, she has contributed to major UK and international exhibitions to great acclaim. Her work is part of many personal collections as well as that of the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge and the Alison and Louis Koch Collection, Zurich.
Emmeline combines unexpected and contrasting materials in her Bristol studio. Using her signature techniques of hand carving acrylic and embedding it with metallic elements, she creates striking, beautiful and contemporary wearable sculpture.
Her pieces capture fleeting moments; something glimpsed and remembered. Her jewels, earrings, pendants and rings reveal rough crystalline forms, surfaces dotted or bristling with glittering gold or silver elements that shift and change in colour and perspective.
