the ark

Known simply as 'The Ark' this exhibition piece is only 14cm long but took more than 200 hours to complete. The Ark houses a jewellery set of necklace, ring, and earrings centred around the story of

Noah's Ark.

Each piece of jewellery is housed in a box hidden beneath the animals in the hold of the vessel. The centre section, which resembles a sedan chair, lifts out and contains an elephant cocktail ring made from three colours of gold encrusted with blue, white, green and cherry coloured diamonds.

The images below follow some of the making process.
