Our Story
Our Story

Pendant in fine silver with liver of sulphur patina. For this piece, I took inspiration from the fascinating Maori panels in Christchurch Art Gallery, each telling an ancient story. I thought about the way a family story is woven out of sharing our memories with our children and adding our experiences as we move through life together.

Memento de Marine

Memento de Marine Keyring 4cm x 4cm Fine (99.9%) Silver I made this piece by covering seaweed with silver clay paste, built up over 12 layers. It was more tricky than usual because I applied the paste to both sides which meant the heat of the seaweed burning off had to be accounted for. The seaweed was found on a beach in Denmark whilst celebrating our wedding anniversary so I made this as a gift for my lovely hubby :) More images in the album linked to below:

CRUX ISSIMUS "Allow Me In".
CRUX ISSIMUS "Allow Me In".

Fine silver on a sterling chain. This version of the Christian cross (as distinct from the Greek cross with arms of equal length) has its own Latin name with a very special meaning.

Our Strength
Our Strength

Latvian amber, New Zealand paua and Mexican silver stand together, mounting a show of strength emboldened by the differences between them. They are bound by the leather thread of understanding that arches upwards to the higher powers to which they appeal: please keep us from moving apart. Made for treasured Stephen Bear, someone whose special gift is in bringing people together. The silver was made by making a mould of the paua shell and then taking an impression from the mould in silver clay.

Isle be Happy Here
Isle be Happy Here

Fine silver and seed pearls - I made this piece by wrapping strips of silver clay sheet around a cork clay core which burned away on firing leaving the solid silver, hollow form. Its quirky diamond shape reminded me of the shape of the Isle of Wight, so it became a gift for my special friend Emma who has come to the Island for Summer happiness ever since she was born...
