  Art has to reveal to us ideas, formless spiritual essences. The supreme question about a work of art is out of how deep a life does it spring… All the rest is the speculation of schoolboys for schoolboys.

My rings

I took these two images on my phone to put on Instagram. They were intended as quick snaps to record this work.
I wear the top two rings every day. Both made as memory pieces to record private events. 
Both are 18ct gold.
I wanted to make myself something that I could wear even when I work, something that would wear well. So they wear with me every day. 
From all the choices before me, this is what I made for me.
My finger has changed shape because of them. 
Some days I only wear one. I miss the other ring when it is not worn.
Some days I wear three rings together, however the top silver ring does not mean the same to me as the two gold rings. It is just a ring.

'My Assemblages'

I took this image on my phone of a pipe cleaner work that I made a couple of years ago.
I have been drawing these pieces, which is quite a challenge I must say.
I am working towards a body of work that I will exhibit at Milly Sleeping in Carlton in April. 
This body of work is called, My Assemblages, and will comprise of 4 new pipe cleaner pieces, a series of drawings/watercolours, a small range of pendants and rings.
I want to thank Leah for asking me to make this body of work for her. It was so great to be asked to make something new and unrelated to what I usually do, something exploring my own creativity.

Wonkier Wonky wedder in 18ct white gold

18ct white gold Wonkier Wonky wedder.

This ring is roughly 4 - 6mm wide with varying wall thickness. It is a wonky, organic ring, that changes as you move around the ring. Fingers are not perfectly round, and neither is this ring!
This ring can be made to order in different metals as well as widths.

Wedding rings

This image was sent to me by a very lovely client who asked me to make her wedding ring. It was taken by their wedding photographer.
It is 18ct white gold with hand engraving. The ring is slightly shaped to sit with her engagement ring which I also made.
The ring underneath is her husband's, made by Phoebe Porter.
It is always such an honour to be asked to make wedding rings. I think that they are my favourite jewellery piece to make.

Kiki Bowman, my new dog.
Well, I have actually had her with me for 7 months, so she is not so new, she is 9 months old.
She is a crazy happy dog.
When I first got her she would bark when ever I hammered, which made working difficult, or noisy.
Now I can drill and hammer and she doesn't seem to notice.
