Polly Wales


London's Polly Wales is another fine graduate of the Royal College of Art. She works with a wide range of materials, from resin to plaster to bread (she collaborated with fellow RCA student Lina Peterson on the bread ring that I mentioned last August). Here, she combines crystal with fine silver — that's 99.9% pure as opposed to sterling's 92.5%, and it's why the metal looks almost white, providing a striking contrast to the black and red volcanic eruption of Swarovski prettiness. Be sure to check out the cool pieces in her "battenberg" series as well.
