Icons, Inspirations and Adornments: Heart of Bone

article

“Heart of Bone creations fuse Emma’s love of everything fashion, pop culture and fairytales together with her rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle”

Bold, darkly poetic pieces of silver and gold, exquisitely handcrafted and unique… these are just a few ways to describe Heart of Bone. First carved meticulously in wax, each piece is then cast into a visually stunning creation. Often meaningful and symbolic, Emma Abrahams creates her brand of iconic bespoke jewellery called ‘Heart of Bone’.

Emma’s pieces truly are works of art, with beautiful tones embed into the detailed pieces. Eye-catching statement rings like the giant death moths, bats, skulls and scorpions. Her range captures the magical and spiritual, designed to make a statement, while still being a versatile embellishment. Venitas symbols, while often popular for jewellery, can often miss the mark but Emma has somehow captured a unique feel, making her rings romantic and unreserved. Distinct designs, that shape themselves around the wearer, are striking; they give insight into the obvious fearlessness of someone willing to express their daring. Emma has a passion for custom pieces and encourages her fans to have a one off piece made exclusively for them, where no moulds are made of these commissions, making them truly personalised.

Heart of Bone also makes Icon rings that include Karl Lagerfeld, Anna Wintour, Carmen Miranda, Ariel the little mermaid, Maleficent, Wonderwoman, David Bowie and many more.  Inspired by her portraiture practice and taking the skull icon concept to another level all together by adorning them with their defining characters style and accoutrements.

A practicing artist for 20 years, Emma has had an extensive career in the arts as a painter, an antique restorer (where she ran a restoration studio) and also in the fashion industry. Emma sees her jewellery as an extension of her brand ‘Heart of Bone’ that encompasses her creativity as an artist.

“Emma’s work playfully toys with our consumption of celebrity culture and the relentless way us human beings create our modern idols. Worn and collected by rock stars, style makers, bloggers, artists, models, porn stars, slashies and other cool folk of planet earth.”

About Author

Kylie Dexter was born (and is currently living with her gorgeous boys, Rob and Zen)  in Melbourne, Australia. Inspired by Pop Surrealism and the New Contemporary Art movement  she began collecting original works and sculptures in the mid 90's. Since then her collection has grown to epic proportions. She has had an obsession with art from a young age and has an eye for emerging artists, and a deep understanding of the narrative the artist is trying to portray. She believes art can change the way people think and reach the deepest part of their psyches. Kylie has faith in art's ability to create an energy to express and reflect the  deep symbolism and stories that are untouchable in normal reality. She also has a  heartfelt connection to music and is a self-taught artist who brings needle felting to life via her dolls that are sold and shown around the world.   With an enthusiastic addiction for writing about art, talking about art, looking at art and making art, what better place to be, surrounded by what you love! I feel passionate that Beautiful Bizarre Magazine raises the profile of up and coming artists, supports those already in the industry and contributes positively to galleries who share a common goal; to keep art alive and flowing, to keep people creating and more importantly keep people collecting and expressing themselves via the images on their walls. .
