Touchy: Georgina Boyce’s ‘Kin’ collection is her most tactile yet

The 16 pieces in the Georgina Boyce’s new ‘Kin’ collection are infused with a joyful energy. Twisting Helix rings, articulated Equator earrings and two-tier Nexus hoops in rose, yellow or white gold, cut simple, spherical silhouettes, with an elegant fluidity. ‘I wanted to keep the pieces within a sculptural  realm but with a fresh, light feel,’ says the British jeweller. Each jewel has a kinetic element and builds on Boyce’s first Cubism-inspired collection Geo.

Boyce is at home researching new techniques and mechanisms and exploring fluid forms. She trained in jewellery design at the London campus of The Gemological Institute of America. That she specialised in diamonds is evident in the ‘Kin’ collection, where they are set with a light precision.

The designer delighted in making the collection elegantly playful: ‘People usually visualise jewellery as something entirely static, so I explored the opposite. When I wear jewellery, I play with it and twist it all day long. That’s why ‘Kin’ has an in-built “fiddle” factor.’ §
