Exploring the principles of genetics has enabled Jewellery Designer and Maker Sandra Wilson to produce innovative forms and ways of wearing jewellery that has won many awards.
Her protein strands are metre long coils of fine silver wire wound round cotton cord. Each strand has four magnets inside which allows the piece to be worn anyway the wearer wants - for example as a necklace or even as a stylish belt if combined with another strand.
Many of my textiles involve a range of techniques and interdisciplinary work. Shibori, the traditional Japanese process of resist dyeing forms the basis of my textured and uniquely patterned fabrics.
My metallic range is treated with electrolysis, to achieve a fine coating of silver, copper or gold. A variety of finishes are applied to achieve an aged appearance. Some work is additionally manipulated and embellished with stitch to create a textured surface.

My work is primarily based on the art forms that can be found in nature, especially deriving from the sea and sea creatures. The wide variety of materials used, challenges the traditional roles of jewellery. Wool, wire, plastics, enamel paints and found objects, are mixed with precious materials such as gold and pearls. The end results are lightweight, sculptural, contemporary forms to adorn the body.
