Monastery Jewellery

Monastery Jewellery is a South African atelier jewelry design collection by Ashleigh McCulloch. The pieces are designed with a deep love of the nature of body in relation to the object as well as homage to mysticism and ancient spiritually. Everything is made by hand and meticulous care with an emphasis on the influence on the metalsmithing process; and the centuries-old esoteric and philosophical tradition of hermeticism.
