Second Skin


Second Skin is the latest collection by Conor Joseph, which sees the Jewellery artist pay homage to the human body and its varying differences and uniqueness.

The collection is made of 30 pieces, all made on fine gold plated silver, hand crafted in London’s prestigious Hatton Garden. Like most of Conor’s work, Second Skin is a dark and obscure collection, yet his use of often-uncelebrated details of the skin such as wrinkles, freckles and scarring creates provokes feelings of intimacy and poeticism.

Each piece within the collection has its own identity, cast and moulded from various models, lending itself well to Conor’s love of bespoke. Some of the items are also ready-to-wear, quality is never compromised with each piece intended as a long-lasting wearable work of art.

'I have a huge fascination with the human form; I have always been interested in the natural texture and intricate detail of the skin and contours of the body. I thought that by creating a collection to celebrate the human form was the perfect way to express my love of combining jewellery with the body.'
