My latest collection of floral designs captures the drama of large flowers along with the fragility of soft petals. Observing from nature I have developed the basic stitching techniques I use to include three dimensional elements, creating pieces which reflect the delicacy and beauty of real flowers.
Some of my work incorporates found objects. My Vintage Collection uses recycled 100 year old mother of pearl vintage buttons, mostly from the Edwardian era, to create unusual and often unique jewellery. In our throw away society I want to highlight the simple beauty of such everyday objects, once so precious as to have been hoarded away by our grandmothers in the times of “make do and mend”.
