Wraps collection . . .

Wraps are something I have been making since graduating, they were the result of being inspired by handwriting, looking at the overlapping and interweaving lines drawn by the hand. Wraps were originally used in combination with the various other contrasting elements. Gradually they have developed into pieces on to their own, useful if you are wearing a necklace for instance with a wrap element along others, you may prefer to wear wrap studs for example, keeping it simple.

They remain an element amongst other contrasting elements, and they are also an established collection of their own comprising of nice weighty and tactile bangles which you may have spotted in my online shop already, there are also studs, necklaces, more recently brooches in the collection, and now I have a brand new hanging wrap earring that features a hand drawn silver lozenge top element. All are available in black or white sterling silver, and are now all available online . . .

Collage commission . . . Part one

A couple of weeks ago I was presented with a beautiful bundle of family treasures. I often create collages for people with their own collected ephemera, to archive them in a way that they can appreciate every day. 

So I’ve already mocked up the collage for the customer and sent them an image so the customer can make any changes they wish before I secure and mount it up. So that’s the weekends job! I often create the mock up with photocopied versions so I can comfortably cut and work into those papers, until I get the ok!! 

I’m really looking forward to finishing this one. (I will share if I can!)
