Fossil and silver ring

Oxfordshire Art Weeks

Saturday 2 May – Sunday 10 May 2015
Opening times: 12-6pm (Fri 12-8pm)

Hand crafted silver jewellery incorporating felt, semi-precious stones, fossils, pebbles and shells. Exploring textures and finishes. In my work I express the two sides of my character: a perfectionist’s eye for detail and a sense of exuberance. Felt can be moulded into any shape, dyed any colour and can be used to make anything from Jewellery to Gers (Mongolian felt houses). I find it exciting to combine the soft textures and striking colours of felt with the perfect hard reflective surface of polished silver.

I am also inspired by naturally occurring materials, especially semi-precious stones that are unusual shapes or are still in their raw form: fossils, pebbles and shells.

I am pleased to be exhibiting with painter Judith Yarrow and ceramicist Crabby Taylor. We enjoy discussing our work and everyone is very welcome. Our access is down a gravel path with a handrail. We have a ramp which with determination can make access by wheelchair a possibility.

My full collection will be available to view from Tuesday 5 May onwards, when I will be there everyday from 12 noon – 6pm. On Friday 8 May, we are open 12 noon – 8pm. Only part of my collection will be on show from 2 – 4 May, and I will not be there in person.
