Cluster Craft Jewellery Edition is finally here! We are excited to exhibit alongside a phenomenal selection of contemporary artists with Cluster Craft at their annual Jewellery Edition in London this week!
Cluster supports designers and brands who are not afraid to be active, innovative and different. It is a platform that takes a unique approach towards exhibiting and experiencing the creative arts, bringing together a range of styles and imaginative individuals into an intimate collective setting.
Developing this body of work, we wanted to celebrate the evolution of our knowledge and understanding of coral bleaching. If you’ve been following our work you know that we have been focused on generating awareness around climate change and coral bleaching for the majority of the year. Pulling and piecing together bits of research, design, and community it has been incredible to see how all of you have joined in our journey and shared the message behind Lot28.
Last week we previewed three of the pieces we will be exhibiting this week and now we are here to share the other five!
Sun Yellow Mini Polyp Hoops & Coral Polyp Studs
Inspired by the coral polyp these studs and mini hoops can stand alone but also pair well with a large statement Superdrop or cocktail ring. Coral polyps are tiny soft bodied organisms. They are closely related to sea anemones and jellyfish. Polyps can survive on their own but also in spectacularly diverse clusters and reefs.
Periwinkle Superdrop Earrings
A drop from the ocean, our Superdrop Earrings come straight from the water. With fluid and lightweight movement these earrings are make for a great statement look. Inspired by clusters of little coral polyps coming together to create the beginnings of a coral reef these earrings are a lightweight indicator to something larger.
Whoa, now that’s a cocktail ring! Introducing the Organelle ring. Inspired by the vast specialized organism and structures that contribute to the health of our oceans comes a cocktail ring meant to initiate conversation! Most corals have clear translucent bodies. More often than not the brilliant colors corals are known for actually come from tiny algae called zooxanthellae. The algae live inside the coral tissue and produces pigments visible through the clear body of the polyp!
A bloom of color and personality wrapped up into a ring. This ring is inspired by the phenomenal annual coral blooms. During annual coral blooms millions of reproductive cells are released into the ocean, join together, and spawn new coral polyps. The Bloom ring represents the beginning of new coral growth.
The exhibition opened yesterday and we couldn’t be happier! Smack in the middle of the iconic cultural hotbed Brick Lane, the exhibition is open now through September 8th. The show is hosted at The Truman Brewery will take place during London Fashion Week!
