Julie Jenkinson’s BLACKBONES Collection spans the divide between found object, fine art sculpture and jewelry. Working through a deeply intuitive and organic sense of form, Jenkinson creates assemblages of artisanal and salvaged industrial materials. The results are strikingly dramatic pieces that one could only call post modern industrial primitive.
The visual intrigue of each piece derives from the way Jenkinson combines indigenous and ethnic vocabularies with a classic modernist sensibility. Bridging ancient and contemporary design, she creates a timelessness around each piece that is hard to place but is difficult to ignore.
Each BLACKBONES piece is irresistibly tactile, inviting you to hold and feel the beauty of their texture and explore their unique forms.
Whether the jewelry is worn daily as a signature item or as an occasional accent piece, this collection is bound to draw attention and set the wearer apart.
BLACKBONES is Julie Jenkinson’s signature and thoroughly unique design statement expressed through jewelery and sculpture.
