British jewellery artist Imogen Belfield

(image from imogenbelfield.blogspot.co.uk):

creates conceptual pieces which seem inspired by contradictions:

smooth/textured,  simple/complex,  earthly/other worldly –

design experimentation which challenges conventions.

Completing her degree at Sir John Cass School of Art,

Ms. Belfield launched her label in 2010

and has shown at London Fashion Week (LFW).

There is a primitive aspect to her work.

It is raw, basic, yet intricate  … a multi-layered perspective:

 a sense of mystery

an enigmatic quality –

 as in investigating the origins and significance

of a rare archeological find.

Therein lies the beguiling appeal of Ms. Belfield’s designs:

beauty for contemplation.

Her singular collections have attracted

a celebrity clientele.

She uses a mixture of materials,

which adds dimensionality to her creations.

Hers is a design approach

which is decidedly inventive.
