Size and fit
Ellis Mhairi Cameron: "There’s definitely a place for shiny white diamonds, but that place is certainly not in my studio"
What is your inspiration?
All of my work is very sculptural jewellery, all inspired by my Scottish heritage. I grew up in the highlands of Scotland, very beautiful, very remote but also filled with old markers of history like old dilapidated churches and ruined castles and all of these objects that speak of a different point in time. So for me it’s always been about exploring that sense of place and the cultural identity that goes with it.
Do you think you need to be a little bit of an artist in order to get into jewellery?
It definitely helps. There are so many different forms of jewellery. There is costume, fine, demi-fine, fashion and it absolutely helps if you’re designing to have that all-encompassing way of thinking about the painting, the mood board, how you’re drawing everything together.
