Today I have been polishing, pricing and finishing some jewellery for a Christmas exhibition.
As you know I take a lot of inspiration from my surroundings, so let me introduce you to ‘Woolly’
All my sterling silver jewellery over 7.78g is hallmarked, it’s very small to see with the naked eye but you can see my initials when it’s blown up.
These copper enamelled pieces were inspired by my walks along the river Wharfe; dry stone walls, lichens and ripples on peaty water. I have finished some with sterling silver and the square ones will be set in a pendant with a silver bezel setting but I’m still working on them.
Here’s one of my photo’s that inspired these pieces.
I thought it would be a good idea to photograph these pieces in the places that inspired them, maybe it wasn’t such a good idea as I almost got wet.
Here are a few more enamelled copper pieces photgraphed in the great outdoors that inspired them.
This is how I finished the ones for the exhibition
And a few more pieces for the exhibition.
