Isla Christie is a jeweller and a recent graduate of Silversmithing and Jewellery from the Glasgow School of Art. She makes use of digital tools to explore the infinite possibilities of geometrical forms, and is captivated by the myriad ways in which these forms can be constructed, deconstructed and reimagined. Isla constantly transitions between working in a 2D and 3D space to shift her perspective and consider alternate possibilities of shape and form.
Working in silver and paper, Isla has developed a method of ‘slicing’ digital 3D models into delicate items of jewellery made from layers of cut paper. Her most recent collection of earrings features kinetic forms which encourage playful interaction from the wearer. In this collection, she has produced an array of interchangeable elements, including front and back sections of earrings which can be rearranged in endless combinations.
