New additions to my Aosdana collection

Tuesday 13 August 2013 § Leave a comment

A new selection of jewellery has just arrived at Aosdana on the Isle of Iona, including my current favourite raindrop with tiny rain earrings!


Raindrops with tiny rain top earrings (fragment of old postcard with detail of teal stamp set in oxidised silver frame, under perspex to protect the paper then secured with gold tube rivets)


Line of colour necklace, one of my classic necklaces (oxidised silver looped chain holding a bundle of oxidised circles over an oval of old postcard, in an oxidised silver setting, protected with perspex + secured with a gold tube rivet, all along a line of garnets)


Double chatter pendant on chocolate brown cotton (oval of old postcard and circle of old linen map encased in an oxidised silver frame and secured with perspex sheet and gold rivets, clustered along with a bundle of circles, a holey oval and a loop of aquamarine beads)


Derelict studs named because the contrasting textures in the studs refer to various textures found in derelict once-loved homes, ribbed linear panel, textured ovals, ivy pattern strip, and holey oval, layered silver elements in black, gey and white matt finishes, secured with a gold tube rivet

Reflections on words . . .

Sunday 14 July 2013 § Leave a comment

Forming words was launched yesterday at Manchester Craft & Design Centre / my studio home.

The work exhibited was beautiful and thought provoking and I’m looking forward to seeing it all again, in more depth next time, not just as very beautiful objects! It was an incredibly hot day, so I don’t blame me for just enjoying it, the busy lively craft centre and the cocktails!

One of my all time favourite ceramists is in the exhibition, Hanne Mannheimer, one of my many many favourite jewellers Jessica Turrell, and I’m very happy to now have a new favourite in Buddug Wyn Humphreys, just stunning. Here are a few snaps from yesterday, you will need to imagine this alongside various musicians we had accompanying the opening!

More of my jewellery, and collages are available from Studio 6 where I work, though not this Saturday, I will be enjoying the launch and hope you can come along!
