Mabel Hasell Joins The Latest ‘Go-To’ Guide For Bespoke ShoppersF&L Designer Guides, the hottest source of information regarding bespoke engagement rings, welcomes the talent of Mabel Hasell to their select group.
Mabel Hasell’s unique methods of creating exquisite bespoke engagement rings truly complements the philosophy behind the latest online specialty site, F&L Designer Guides. The F&L Designer Guides is a definitive resource for couples seeking an unusual, one-of-a-kind engagement ring made possible through the bespoke services offered by a hand-select group of the UKs top independent jewellery designer-makers. To make the F&L grade, a designer’s work has to truly stand out from the crowd as Mabel Hasell’s work seems to do.
The beauty of Mabel’s work seems to begin with their mesmerizing organic quality. Mabel herself admits to not entirely knowing what her final product will look like after going through her crafting process. The end result is an original and unique surprise of beauty and mystery.
The technique Mabel utilizes to ‘grow’ her handcrafted pieces is called ‘lost wax casting’. Initially a piece of jewellery will be created in wax with stones placed where they hope to be set. Then molten metal is introduced to melt and replace the wax and eventually take the shape of the final piece. As the wax melts the liquid metal flows around the gems carrying each one gently with the current. The result can never be fully anticipated and consequently never replicated.
Recently, during an interview, the designer revealed that the lost wax casting technique “was a perfect way of combining my interests in metal, organic forms and colourful gems.” It does not seem surprising that Mabel found great success and interest in her creations as early as her participation in New Designers (the UKs biggest graduate exhibition).
Mabel Hasell’s unique pieces have frequently prompted and inspired the creation of bespoke engagement rings. The organic fluidity of her pieces is undeniably original, shown through their freeing sense of randomness and exquisite perfection born from imperfection. F&L Designer Guides is an ideal home for this designer as the two parties seem to share a cohesive philosophy and passion for the beauty of the unique.
