Artist's Statement

Justin’s silver and gold contemporary jewellery is deeply influenced by the surrounding countryside and ocean. He is especially fascinated by the way they engage with each other, constantly conflicting, whilst paradoxically achieving a harmonic balance. Recently he has expanded his collections to include a new style of sand cast rings, as well as a variety of metals we can make our products in; we now use platinum, palladium and titanium as well as the traditional silver and gold.

The jewellery that Justin produces shows the contrast between the natural textures of the land and sea. He does this by combining wood with precious metals to give the piece an elemental feel, or by texturing the metal in a way that creates a feeling of organic movement. This culminates in a collection of contemporary jewellery, which change with wear in much the same way as the sea shapes the coastlines of Cornwall.

Justin Duance designs and creates his contemporary jewellery using a stylishly understated combination of silver or gold and non-precious materials, such as wood and resin.  The wood in Justin’s gold and silver contemporary jewellery will change over time and with wear making each piece entirely unique and personal to the wearer. Each piece is hallmarked and stamped with his makers mark, so you can be sure of the content, purity and quality of the gold and silver involved.
