Ellis Mhairi Cameron
The intricate jewellery designs from Handmade in Britain Member of the Week, Ellis Mhairi Cameron, are focused on the natural landscape’s ability to trigger memory and emotion.
Ellis documents the surroundings of her family environment in the rural West Coast of Scotland as it elicits vivid memories for the artist.
Through her research, Ellis has found that water holds a sense of duality. Water is a mediator between being and gone, encompassing many states of presence, “I comment on the notion of precious worth, by working exclusively in silver and ‘non-precious’ found stones from the beaches.”
Ellis creates her designs using processes such as casting and fusing to induce a sense of organic unpredictability.
Her most recent collection, Cairn, takes inspiration from the beaches of Tralee and Craigneuk, in Benderloch, Argyll.
