Old. Found. Turned around.
Working under the name Moth and Magpie, sharp eyed jewellery designer Ruth sees the potential in cast-off old jewellery, merging it with ancient finds such as Roman glass beads. Using salvaged metal and materials wherever possible, she retains the feeling of unearthed treasure by concentrating on complex patinas; hammering, melting and enamelling - creating an aesthetic as unique as it is exciting.
