This mostly features leaves and flowers, from various materials. The garden and the fields around where I live are very precious to me, the beauty of living things holds a fascination which never fades. Much influence for this comes from ancient jewellery where flowers and leaves were often used, I particularly like the Greek and Minoan styles of artwork and their way of making decorative objects, the manner in which it was stylised is very appealing to me.
The silver leaves are cast from actual leaves from tmy garden and the surrounding fields. I pick up leaves in Autumn to use when the veining is very clear. Sometimes I use small leaves in Spring, although I don”t really like to take them before they have the chance to have their full life on the tree.
