Now into my third year of re-creating antique watch parts and broken discarded vintage jewellery into quirky and original pieces of jewellery, I find that some of my pendants are becoming smaller and therefore more intricate. I’ve also added earrings to my collection, mostly made from vintage necklace chains and the beautiful rolled gold straps of ladies dainty vintage watches. The tiny watches themselves are re-created into gorgeous necklaces with other treasures added to the design. Vibrant crystals enhance many of my pieces and satisfy my intuitive love of colour. I have also completed my first commission pieces, bringing loved family items back to life to delight further generations and re-ignite treasured family memories. My fascination and intrigue of both the beauty and the historical narrative of these broken and discarded objects that had once been so treasured remains at the heart of my desire to re-create them into beautiful modern day and wearable miniature artworks.
