This series stems from an idea I had a year ago to make jewellery
using strictly raw metallic materials from the hardware store.
I wanted to use the perfect models who would fit the raw feel that I
was going for and found the perfect models, Aluad - gorgeous as a
tribal queen, and Alex a stunning Albino model. We used makeup
reminiscent of the golds, coppers and silvers to echo the primal feel
of the jewellery.
