A showcase of jewellery from recent graduate Ruth Leslie.
New to The Gallery, Ruth Leslie studied Silversmithing & Jewellery at The Glasgow School of Art; graduating in 2015.
Working in a variety of metals including silver, gold and titanium, she creates sculptural jewellery that is inspired by the irregularities within fabrics as well as the structural forms within textile machinery. With both these aspects in mind, Ruth creates subtle colours through heat-treating titanium to contrast against geometric, three-dimensional forms created with fine, twisted wire. This combination of colour and workmanship results in unique and stimulating pieces, which are surprisingly light and playful to wear.
