Octi explores how shapes, patterns and textures from the natural world can become miniature sculptures worn on the body.
By casting directly from the skins of fruits/ vegetables or by sculpting organic shapes in wax with line drawings, fragments of nature are captured in precious metals.
These patterns and textures often repeat themselves on micro / macro scales, in different locations within the world. For example the texture of a gherkin mimics a field of ant hills, and the skin of an avocado mimics lava, on micro scales.
Octi repeats these once again into jewellery, bringing microscopic and macroscopic worlds to the wearer’s scale, to be worn as long lasting reminders of our connection to nature.
All pieces are designed and made in Octi’s London studio and produced locally from recycled precious metals.
