Emily Bradbury of ‘Constant And True’ and Dawn Hindle of ‘Pikes Hotel’ are set to launch their first jewellery collaboration, TRUE ROCKS at the Pikes Hotel (the hotel of choice for the rock n roll elite) On the 1st & 4th June 2014.
The Pikes Hotel is the offshoot boutique after party destination of Ibiza Rocks. The collaboration for a new jewellery brand, True Rocks was established when Emily and Dawn met in Ibiza in last summer when Dawn was hosting a gig for The Specials – Dawn is one half of the successful team behind Ibiza Rocks and Emily has a strong reputation for creating innovative product ranges collaborating with leading British artists.
“When we met in Ibiza, it was a meeting of the minds. We knew that we were going to work together creatively and decided that we wanted to also collaborate with those who inspire us in contemporary art, fashion and music. By creating a jewellery collection under the banner of True Rocks, this reflects both our personalities – in other words, a jewellery collection with attitude”.
Gavin Turk Edition – “Bitten” ‘Rich Tea Biscuit’
We are delighted to announce the new collaboration with Gavin Turk and True Rocks, to produce a limited edition pendent of Gavin’s iconic work of art – the bitten rich tea biscuit. Each ‘biscuit’ is numbered, signed and authenticated Each edition of 100 is available in silver, Yellow gold and Rose gold along with a fine chain that 16-18″ in length. They will be producing a limited edition of 10 of 18 carat Rose & Yellow gold to order. The edition number will be engraved on the back.
Having previously made work with tea stains on watercolour paper, Gavin Turk produced a limited edition art work of signed Rich Tea biscuits for the 2006 Art Car Boot Fair, biting, signing and framing an original biscuit. Gavin views tea and biscuits as an essential element of Britain’s cultural history and the ‘bite’ gesture breaks the circularity of the biscuit and refers to a loss of innocence.
