The Protector by Rachel Boston

London based jewellery designer maker Rachel Boston creates fascinating pieces of jewellery that are inspired by nature, contemporary culture and high fashion to celebrate both the beautiful and the damned. Boston’s recent collection titled The Protector is inspired by the aggressive looking exoskeletons of beetles and scorpions.  Infusing these natural elements with ‘sophistication and rock ‘n’ roll’ has resulted in these compelling designs.

The inspiration for The Protector collection is immediately obvious, the organic forms that resemble the claws of beetles and scorpions is captured perfectly. The above design is the Large Stag Necklace where Boston has contrasted materials and finishes to produce a striking design.  The Gold positioned at the top of the Stag Necklace highlights the black Rhodium of the claws which creates a beautiful aesthetic between materials.

The Scorpion Stings bracelet is a great piece, using the scorpion stinger or known within some circles as the telson, Boston has created a rock ‘n’ roll piece of jewellery that is inspired by the deadliest part of a natural predator. This sounds very rock ‘n’ roll to me! The Scorpion Stings bracelet is made from Sliver and is cast using real scorpion stings.

Another fantastic piece from Boston is the Atlas beetle ring. Cast from the head of a real Atlas beetle the ring takes on a defensive form with its fiercely protruding spears. The highly polished finish on the ring emphasizes the beauty of the intricate organic structure.

 

All of these fab creations are handmade by Boston in her East London studio where she focuses on design, craftsmanship, artistry, and luxury. A new age designer maker Boston uses both traditional and modern making methods to create her charismatic designs.
