Hybrid Geology Kate Rohde
The Hybrid Geology contemporary jewellery series was designed and developed after fine artist Kate Rohde collaborated with Australian fashion house Romance Was Born (RWB) in 2010. Initially made as accessories for RWB’s SS10/11 collection, Renaissance dinosaur, Rohde was invited by Melbourne jewellery and small object gallery Pieces of Eight to further refine and expand the geologically-inspired collection. Using the spiky form of the quartz crystal as inspiration, and the versatile transparent qualities of polyurethane resin to mimic crystalline forms, the series features simple pieces for everyday wear as well as bold costume jewellery designs.
