Although relatively new to jewellery making, over the years I have accumulated a collection of vintage jewellery from both my mother and my English grandmother. More recently and at a time when I was researching my family history, I randomly purchased a collection of antique pocket watch faces from an on-line auction and became fascinated and intrigued by both the beauty and the historical narrative of these now broken and discarded objects that had once been so treasured. Each piece that I create is a unique miniature artwork and comes together intuitively from my now large stash of cogs, faces and jewels. Dents and blemishes merely become an opportunity to embellish and influence the design while adding to the narrative of the piece.
