Jeweller / Sculptor - Nic Bladen

Phalaenopsis wristpiece

Nic Bladen has transformed one of my all time favourite orchids (above) into this amazing piece of art. Nic has a background in Dental technology (which is my father's original trade) and has merged his knowledge and skills from DT with bronze casting to create this amazing jewellery. The technique is known as lost wax casting, learn more about it and Nic's work here.

Aren't they beautiful, original pieces - I really love botanical jewellery.
