Rhys Kelly’s New Installation

Rhys Kelly Bio

Born and raised in South Florida – Rhys gravitated toward finding beauty in the unexpected — often creating jewelry and art from things she found in nature.

While attending a small art school in Monessen, Pennsylvania, Rhys Kelly took a course on painting eyes and teeth for creatures that the students sculpted. From that class, Rhys noticed how much detail went into painting one eye – and how no two eyes are the same. This was a perfect representation for what Rhys always knew to be true: The eye represents perspective, uniqueness and individualism.

After school, Rhys started gifting the eye jewelry to friends and family, it gained attention from people beyond her inner circle and she started selling pieces in 2017, thus bringing the Rhys Kelly brand to life. Rhys’s collection of handcrafted pendants, rings and bracelets are timeless one of a kind pieces — each designed around the human eye. The eye has, for all of human existence (and probably beyond) been a symbol of power, protection, knowledge, good, evil and much more. What’s remained consistent is the fact that no two eyes are the exact same.

Rhys’s “What’s Your Perspective,” is a body of work comprising pieces of art and jewelry centered around the human eye. The collection is meant to inspire, fascinate and celebrate the unique perspective of every person. For Kelly’s art installation she casts eye forms using acrylic and acrylic paint, first pouring the acrylic into a mold and then painting. Her jewelry is handmade of precious metals including silver, gold and both semi-precious and precious gemstones. She most recently released her “Drippy Eye” installation – which is a large standing installation. Prices for Kelly’s work start at $195 for jewelry and range from $500 to $5,000 for art.

Rhys is now 24 years old and currently resides in Los Angeles where she continues to expand her following and create her artwork.

Brits x Eyes Health Check

Over 18 Million Brits Do Not Consider Eyes As Part of Their Routine Health Check :

New research released by Vision Express to mark World Glaucoma Week reveals over a third of Brits (35%) do not consider having an eye test as part of a routine body ‘MOT’ health check. Worryingly, 1 out of 5 people would choose sight as their least valued sense, with over 1 in 12 Brits (8%) admitting that they have never had their eyes tested.

 

Research shows that 18-24 year olds are the least likely to get their eyes tested, with two in five (40%) saying they do not get them tested at all. This compares to only a quarter (25%) of 66-70 year olds. 1 in 3 Brits who don’t consider eyes as part of their health MOT check only get their eyes tested when they are advised by a doctor and almost a fifth (19%) stated that an eye test is not important.

 

Even if you don’t think you’ve got any problems with your eyes, you should still get them tested every two years. The research also reveals that 3.6 million Brits (7%) had their eyes tested as long as over six years ago.

 

As World Glaucoma Week puts the condition at the top of the health agenda, research conducted by the National Eye Health Research Centre (NERC) unveils a worrying landscape for glaucoma over the next 30 years. It is estimated that the condition may affect 3.2million in the UK in 2050, but unless detection rates are improved, only 1.28million will have been diagnosed and be receiving the treatments they urgently need.
