Hampshire boy Craig Isaac trained in jewellery at Epsom School of Art and Middlesex University where he achieved a BA Hons first class degree. His final years work was an elaborate collection of mouth jewellery inspired by orthodontic braces. Adopting dental mold making processess allowed him to make bespoke removable tooth decoration, which were spotted by stylist Katie England, and shot by Rankin for Dazed and Confused and later appeared in the publication Rankin Works.
Recent work has continued to cross contemporary/fashion jewellery boundaries and has been included in a number of publications including; The Compendium of Contemporary Jewellers, Sustainable Jewellery, New Directions in Jewellery I and II. There are fluctuations in the style of work but it continues to maintain a glance to the past and uses the objects within those memories.
Jeweller Lin Cheung once wrote "Craig Isaac manipulates the detritus of working class male culture to create a sequence of parodic but elegant jewellery".
This current collection is a decisive move to create jewellery for both Men and Women. He remains to be inspired by the nostalgia of forgotten items, in this case the 'wishbone' from the family Sunday lunch and has created pieces that rejuvenate all the associations of this traditional dinner ritual, 'Furcula Repair' is a collection of polished and blackened silver necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings that re-introduce and restores value to this forgotten ritual.
The necklace is a favourite of actress and style icon Karen Gillan who plays Amy Pond in the BBC's Dr Who. The collection is currently available from the east London boutique Luna and Curious and Beyond the Valley in central London.
