Strength - Power - Fragility - Protection
The power of Flight
Flight captures the essence of feathers. Untouchable in their beauty, they both display and protect, simultaneously powerful and fragile.
a bold display of colour
Taking the bright, vibrant colours of feathered displays, Flight allows you to express yourself in a playful, exuberant way.
The feathery texture is embossed into the aluminium with a photo etched steel plate. Like feathers in the sun, Flight catches the light and constantly changes as you move.
It is the combination of spirit based inks and water based dyes that creates the distinctive layering and texturing of the colours of Flight. The more you look at them, the more you discover. No two pieces are the same.
Flight is made entirely by hand using traditional jewellery tools as well as specialist tools that John makes himself. Ear hooks and brooch pins are individually built into each piece using strong, stainless steel wire.
