Featured Jeweller for June is Petrichoralia
Esther Reil is a designer maker who began crafting as a creative outlet. While experimenting with different mediums to create jewellery, she discovered concrete and was drawn to its versatility as can it be used not only to create heavy industrial structures but also light and elegant jewellery. Her business, Petrichoralia is inspired by the word Petrichor – the earthy smell after a period of rain – her work is inspired by architecture geometry and nature.
