Artist’s Statement;

“I make jewellery inspired by antique treasures and the stories they tell. Heirlooms passed through generations building significance. I have strong memories of secretly discovering my Mum’s jewellery box as a child, trying on each piece and wondering at their hidden histories.

 

The Catkin Collection draws on a pattern seen long ago on an antique ring. A memory which lay dormant for more than 10 years until it came time to make my own wedding ring, when I gave myself the time to develop my unique technique layering sometimes hundreds of tiny disks to make a pattern reminiscent of the Spring catkin flower.”
