“I love to sit at my bench with a fresh piece of metal or wax and a new design in mind. The process of making is meditative, concentrating on the piece and my mind clear of everyday things.”
Inspired by jewellery, sculpture and artifacts, Elsa Tierney ‘s designs have a quality reminiscent of lost treasures. Each piece is an homage to modern artists such as Tamara De’Lempicka, Brancusi and Man Ray, while encompassing her love for Art Deco, Bauhaus and Futurist design.
Elsa Tierney combines her Fine Art background and her specialised skills in wax carving to create small jewellery sculptures, designed to be exhibited on the body.
