My designs are developed first through drawing, then by exploring directly in metal whether my sketched shape will work within a piece of jewellery. I find it fascinating how once constructed in a piece of silver, a shape comes to life and presents countless options to improve and develop. My new honey pot collection is a new range of work based around my drawings of buds and flowers. First conceived from one simple shape, larger repetitions were added to show an idea of growth, and small spike shapes to bring a masculine element to the design. Made from sterling silver or 14 carat gold, each piece is designed individually by placing the honey pots and spikes together and moving them into the most attractive configuration.
