Handmade Sterling Silver Earrings with Lapis Lazuli.
“Lava 1” Earrings with Lapis Lazuli.
These unusual inverted earrings show the flow of the silver as it is poured into the mould. A lapis lazuli bead is connected at the base of each earring.
The “Fluid” Collection.
In this collection, the notion of fluidity is taken in a new direction by experimenting with molten wax in water. Using this technique allowed me to explore feelings around control and letting go. The shapes were allowed to develop organically. I selected the shapes that spoke to me and refined them before sending them to be cast using the ancient technique of lost wax casting. Some pieces were kept as one off pieces. Others were refined further and a mound was made so that they could be recast. The pieces in this collection vary greatly, but with each piece you experience the essence of how the wax, and then the silver, flows freely into its unique shape with the guidance of the hand of the designer.
