Jewellery by Hirani
I believe in slow fashion, in taking the time to learn where your stuff comes from, and the story of how it got there.
I also love natural history, and use it as inspiration for my creativity. I'm the sort of person who will bring home a rock, not because it's worth a lot, but because all of the world's processes combined in just the right way to produce something pretty.
I use copper because it is versatile (and affordable) and because it compliments the earthy feel of a lot of my pieces.
When possible I collect my own stones and seeds, and love the process of cutting and prepping before they are jewellery ready. This isn't always practical though, so I do also buy some items.
I like things to be different, so most of my pieces are unique, or at least unusual, but I like to think that they still appeal. I hope you do too.
Using nature for inspiration, and made using copper, sometimes as wire, sometimes electroformed on, what’s available changes all the time.
