Jhana Millers

'We Propose A Gift'


Fantastic conceptual jewellery by Jhana Millers. This image is from her We Propose A Gift range where she has used Michael Hill jewellery catalogues to create rings and placed them in second hand ring boxes. An interesting take on recycling and the idea of what is precious.

'Dear ...'

These lockets from her 'Dear ...' range have been crafted out of old love letters, postcards and envelopes. Lockets hold things that are close to our hearts, Millers has taken his idea and given it a vintage twist.
