I create jewellery with narrative subject matters conveying memory snapshots of fragile moments we all experience. The pieces I create use a combination of traditional methods and materials, such as bone, contrasted with contemporary techniques like laser cutting.
I have always collected keepsakes and mementos, physical reminders of people and significant moments in life. Like many others, I am always reminiscing and remembering, I am especially influenced by memories of fragility. And with my recent fascination with Victorian mourning jewellery has lead me to merge the two.
The Victorians kept lockets of hair and miniature pictures to secure the memory of a lost love. In the same way, I have preserved memories with images and the written word, which I embed in silver and bone.
