An illustrator turned jewllery-maker, Kaye Blegvad has created a raw and beautiful collection in the form of Datter Industries. All pieces are handmade in her London studio. I'm trying to convince myself that if I order that tiny brass cat ring it won't get lost in the mess of the South African postal service (it will). Blegvad describes her work perfectly;
Datter is my endeavour to turn drawings and ideas into jewellery. All pieces start out as models hand carved in wax, which are then cast and finished individually in my studio. I like my work to show signs of being handmade - nothing too clean or too perfect. The process is part of the product. I draw my inspiration from all over the place - ancient artefacts, talismans, ritual, the occult, weaponry, and the natural world.
