Whether you intend it or not, as with your clothing choices your choice of jewellery says a lot about you, and this non-verbal form of communication was the catalyst for this new collection from Bermuda-based jeweller Eleanor Patton of Bermuda Rocks Jewellery.

Patton was curious about the reasons why people wear jewellery and how it is used to communicate.  The collection is based on a clever feature that allows the wearer to interchange the various components of the design with 'base' pieces to create earrings, a necklace, a ring or a bracelet.  Each piece is anchored by small stone set screws that can be disassembled and reassembled as a different piece of jewellery or with a different gemstone.  The curving lines of the design have an art deco feel, but the inspiration for the pieces is in fact based on the abstract geometry of the lens of the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse in Bermuda as Patton felt the illuminating quality of the lighthouse was synonymous with the projection of one's image.

As always, Patton's pieces are handmade from ethically-sourced materials.
