Unique organic electroformed metal and seaglass jewellery
Year Founded: 2015
Murag Jewellery (formerly The Elemental Collection) is a small lochside studio making unique electroformed metal and seaglass jewellery and objet d’art. Everything is locally foraged from the beaches and countryside of Scotland. Inspiration comes from Scottish flora and fauna, flotsam and jetsum.
Our pieces are governed by the seasons and what the beaches and countryside chooses to offers us. We pride ourselves on being ‘green’; when out foraging we clear the beaches of rubbish in an attempt to keep our stunning Scottish countryside clean and tidy.
The very complex nature of electroforming makes for some truly unique jewellery which you won’t see anywhere else so no two pieces are ever the same, just as no two leaves or seeds are the same. Electroforming involves ‘growing’ metal around an object. Each piece of metal jewellery has the leaf, seed or other organic object encased within the metal, preserving it forever.
Each piece is not only unique but is also fully traceable; all our work comes with a short description as to what the item is and where it was collected.
