Waves of undulating seed beads in shades of grey and yellow grow out of a ‘C’ shaped satin silver bangle and nettling in amongst them are three cultured Tahitian pearls. I have hand forged the silver band from wire and folded it over to trap layers of felted material which I then individually hand sewed the highly textures pallet of beads on to. This is a unique one of a kind design.

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 fueled by what I have seen, which then evolves during its creation, it is a very organic process. I use the beads like a paint pallet, building up the final picture as I sew
