My jewellery is first hand sculpted in wax and then transformed into precious metals through the lost wax method. The talisman collections are created in a playful and intuitive way ~ wax carving really lends itself to this. Current inspiration is drawn from ancient artifacts, textiles and metal detecting finds, the way objects can hold meaning and the consequent relationship they have with the body they adorn.
All over the world throughout history, amulets and talismans have offered love, wealth and protection. The idea of wearing a talisman as a way to enhance a specific outcome is not a new one, but what sets my work apart is my intuitive way of working and eclectic mix of influences ~ elements from ancient times with a contemporary twist.
