When asked what is my favourite piece of Jewellery my response is -
I do have family sentimental jewellery, however every time I make a piece of jewellery in those moments of creation the jewellery work in progress is my favourite piece.
Occasionally the making journey becomes something far more important to me and I decide I cannot let the piece be sold.
This particular piece was not designed in the traditional manner but evolved as I started making;
- A simple shape was formed, twisted.
- Shapes were placed, removed, added and eventually joined.
- Placing adjoining colours was considered, conceived, changed and implemented.
- The final brooch shape evolved and became something to save.
A favoured piece of Jewellery, this brooch is one of those selfishly saved pieces.
