NOTES TO EDITOR
Along side the X / Y Collection May Hofman will be showcasing the best of the Talis collection, with a full selection of her stacking rings, Halo Studs and OneElement Necklaces. Talis comes from the word talisman: an object which harnesses magical and spiritual properties.
‘My original collection / concept comes from the fascination in discovering the hidden mechanism and structure of things. A love for small, beautiful, intricate elements has become clear in my work which captures a magical inquisitiveness’
Talis collection has a feminine yet edgy style where as The X / Y collection is gender neutral and explores two universal shapes; Circles and Triangles that surround use on a daily basis, linking the mathematics in nature and a play on design and architecture. These two shapes work in harmony together, playing their own part in the design, making for a modern and minimal unisex jewellery collection.
Inspiration for the X / Y Collection also came from artist Kashmir Malevich and the artist Chun Kwang Young’s ‘Aggregation rapped paper’ at the V & A.
