‘Sea Weed’ is a highly textured and tactile statement ring in beautifully complimenting shades of blue bead work and forged silver. This ring was inspired by the movement of seaweed being tossed and turned by the waves. Firstly I created the hallmarked silver shank by forging it with a hammer, curving it into an undulating S curve and then texturing the surfaces and edges. Clusters of various blue glass seed beads spill out of its curves like foaming seawater crashing on the beach. This is a true statement piece, visually different from every angle, which will always get noticed.
Shank size : P – as an open shank it will open slightly
Shank width –0.8cm to 1.3cm
Ring – base to top – 3cm
Beaded top – 2.5cm x 2cm x 2cm
Nature’s Way is a collection of jewellery designs that are inspired by my love of nature. I represent the colours, textures and forms of nature that I see in the woodlands and at the seaside to create individual designs that can never be reproduced.
I am mixing materials and techniques that I have used over the years, creating a style of jewellery that is unique to me. Each piece starts as a basic idea in my head fuelled by what I have seen around me, the design then evolves during it’s creation, it is a very organic process. I use the beads like a paint pallet, building up the final picture as I individually sew each bead in to place.
